...what should I write on the vest to the car drivers behind me ?
Cab said:You've got one of those POLITE ones, haven't you Arch? (or did I imagine that?). How well does that work out?
Arch said:I have.
I'm not sure. A large number of vehicles do still pass closely, but I don't know whether it's because:
a) They have time to see that it's not actually Police (quite possible in queueing traffic).
They don't notice the word at all (or me, even!)
c) They don't care whether it's Police or not. Which is kind of the most worrying, because that would mean they don't think they are doing anything wrong.
On the other hand, when cars do give me plenty of room, would they have done it anyway?
So it's hard to tell. I think, on balance, there are times it helps, but it's not been as clear cut as I thought it might be.
