This morning the roads were pretty bad,visability was pretty bad too.....but there were still d1ckheads driving with no lights on at all.

On the way home it was pretty took me an hour to drive the 14 miles home.I have to come down a very steep hill as part of the journey and that was 1st gear crawling along,trying to keep hold of the van.....which isn't mine.I didn't think I'd better smash it up on my first day in my new job!.

On the way back through a town called Shaftesbury I followed the enevitable..........

The thing wouldn't grip at all,there was only a very slight incline in the road but it was snaking all over the shop.The driver obviously didn't have a clue what he was doing........he'd floor it to try and get some grip,then go sideways,then panic and hit the brakes.....then repeat the process.

I stopped as I had tears rolling down my eyes and took a pic.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
