Map reading at 70+MPH

I've just come down the A1 from Yorkshire back to Lincs and there was an attractive..but plainly bonkers blonde in a Fiat Stilo doing pretty well 80 MPH and at the same time holding a white sheet of paper up, obviously with directions on it and reading it ....but it gets better.

Still at 80, her head disappears as she reaches over into the passenger footwell to retrieve her large road atlas which she holds up in front of her as the car is weaving across both lanes back and forth, and me and about three other cars are playing chicken trying to decide whether to accelerate away from her (way over the speed limit)..or let her overtake..which she seemed disinclined to do as she was looking for her exit.

She finally turned off at the Doncaster/Barnsley junction after about six miles of this carry on. It was like watching a blonde version of Olive Oyl strapped to a runaway wagon. totally out of control.at times hilarious, but always ready to cause a multi casualty pile up.

What a flipping idiot!
