The tow rope should be no more than three feet (approx. one metre) in length and should be no less than twenty years old. Some sort of rag must be tied somewhere along the length of the rope for absolutely no reason whatsoever.

Your journey should include at least one fifteen mile section of motorway or dual carriageway where you can drive along quite happily at 22mph with your hazard lights flashing.''

you have been warned
