Can't they drive in a straight line and slow down in poor conditions? Obviously not!

I came past the scene earlier on and as you said people do not drive according to the conditions. Drove back from Hedge End and the number of cars driving along with no lights on was staggering. In those conditions with poor visibility and pouring rain surely when the vast majority of cars have lights on you do follow suit with at the very least side lights. These mindless idiots don't deserve to hold a driving licence.

The standard of driving is clearly getting worse, with lane discipline and paying attention to the road and other users rather than texting/ eating/putting on makeup etc, etc. When these people are finally caught their licences should be taken away for 5 years also with a hefty fine and this would send out a strong message and would also cut congestion.

Driver re education is badly needed because driving standards have dropped with patience levels going down.
