Information Release.

There is concern over the current driving standards in England, so the Department of Transport have devised a scheme to identify poor and dangerousdrivers.

This system will allow all road users to recognise the potentially hazardous and dangerous o­nes, or those with limited driving skills.

From the middle of May 2006 all those drivers who are found to be a potential hazard to all other road users will be issued with a white flag, bearing a red cross.

This flag clearly indicates their inability to drive properly.These flags must be clipped to a door of the car and be visible to all other drivers and pedestrians.

Those drivers who have shown particularly poor driving skills will have to display two flags: o­ne o­n each side of the car to indicate an even greater lack of sk ill and limited driving intelligence.

Please circulate this to as many other motorists as you can, in order that drivers and pedestrians will be aware of the meaning of these flags.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Department of Transport.
