Expect the Unexpected...
Odd happening near Bishop Auckland yesterday. My 'pet' hate of trotters, once again (horse and trap) involved. Single carriage way section of the A688 but, this time the trotter had an escort vehicle. Except the idiot driver didnt bother with hazard lights so a LONG queue of traffic formed behind the 10 mph party, with no-one knowing if the trailing vehicle was going to pull out to overtake or not.
I can only imagine someone must of passed too close to the trotter or they simply decided they were entitled to ALL the road so, the following vehicle decided to pull out over the on-coming traffic lane to stop ALL vehicle movements - totally deranged in my opinion.
I hope this is MUCH less of an occurrence in Scotland than it appears to be here?
Extra care needed around trotters and gypsies!!!
