all the truck/ lorry drivers are really great around us... and so are young men ( probably worried about thier high insurance premiums!) and bus drivers--- i agree with jimmy- the ones who do the stupid ditzy things are ussually women at least in our area. weve been overtaken on the outside, swiped at as we've turned into drive, from the other lane (!!) horns blaring behind us, and my personal favorite- the young mother/car driver, on a narrow lane, who let her child hang out of the window, and try to pull my mares harness off as we passed! good thing we are pretty bombproof- all that training's paid off!
