hire cars, aren't they fun!

just back today from a few days in London. it was a cheap holiday so we booked our hire car through Budget (our last hire car in UK was a 159), but this time we got a tiny Peugeot 107. I walked toward the car hating it, its stupidly small, & almost dangerously slow!! However on the Uk motor network the tiny little 107 found life very easy. I drove very much like the locals did, ie very quickly!!! Not sure if Londoners actually look at the max speed signs as they seem to pay very little interest in them!! So us & the 107 bombed up & down Londons motor ways putting over 300 miles on the clock in two days.

Cunning trick in the UK they put up "average" speed cameras, which takes your average speed over a distance & if you've over the limit they do ya!!! I think if i held a UK licence i'd be waiting on a penalty notice in the post, but thankfully i dont' so i'm not!!

146, 147, 156, 164, 166, GTV - This is becoming a bit obsessive!

Do not talk to me about them bloodly average speed cameras. What a pain in the hole they are. We just gave up and by the last ones just flew past them lol. 107? Sounds interesting and small engine cars are great fun cos they can be driven into the ground and your still only doing 30mph lol

The days of getting away with that are numbered I'm afraid ....

Get caught four times and they'll be able to ban you here and at home as well
