It's term time in the city, a so the morning rush hour is worse, and we've seen the return of the mid-afternoon one, seen here.

Here the driver of WN15UKX finds it impossible to make progress without risking their wing mirrors.
Residents of the inner city know that having wing mirrors is a sign of weakness, but here the driver of WN15 UKX isn't going to let the fact they value their bodywork slow them down. Instead, a neat little nip up onto the pavement, a quick sprint at 14 mph down the pavement and they are on their way. Maybe he was late for child pickup. Because you wouldn't want your child to walk home: it isn't safe, not even on the pavements.
Its drivers like this which give us selfish wanker BMW owners a bad reputation.
