I voted yes in the hope that people's anger would diminish if they realized (sitting in the car behind) there was an 'old fogey' in front of them!!

A flashing warning light would be more appropriate but the plates are a good first step. I’m sick of old biddies driving around like they have no fucking agenda!

Why is it that they drive slow as fuck on the road but as soon as they are on the pavement, in those little electric things, they turn into Damon Hill???

With luck, and good health, we'll all be "old biddies" one day. Plus, those "old biddies", as you call them, could be your grandparents. Those "little electric things" are better than the old blue 'invalid cars'. No way could you do your shopping in Waitrose safely, Hotn, if they were still around.
Respect your elders, you absolute, total f'ing dickhead. If it wasn't for them, you wouldn't exist.

There should definitely be some kind of warning.

Or perhaps an underground system of caverns and tunnels to store them.

I do drive slower these days especially on Motorways, but not because I am getting old, its because I now have to pay for my petrol after years of having a company car.

They say 50mph or so is the optimal speed for fuel efficiency right? Just so long as you don't do that in the middle or outside lane!

You would be lucky to achieve that on the M25 on a normal day.

Not that slow, it would take ages to get anywhere.

think the biggest dangers are those over 85 going at under 20, and those under 20 going over 85! Laugh

Why, what have they ever done for me? I give people the respect they deserve, nothing more, nothing less.

When I’m a old cunt I’m going to be a groovy grandad, surf boarding, wing walking and 20 pints of Stella in the boozer a night.

Driving too slow on a motorway can get you a fine and points. Dangerous driving.
