Not snooty, just in love with yourselfAgreed. My driving instructor used to cover my rear view mirror then ask me what colour the car behind me was. I always know to check my blind spot as the car which was behind me has vanished.
Checking mirrors and speedos are BASIC parts of driving. And most people here don't even have to factor in changing gears too!
I don't really care if people think I'm snooty when it comes to this. I've been driving since I was 18 and NEVER had a ticket, for anything!
I drive around 25-30 hours a week and still manage to get no tickets, and have no accidents. How? I learnt to drive properly!
