SIR - Reading the article of Mr Bacon in your issue dated December 20, we have one of those famous go-slow inventions here in Magpie Crescent, Stevenage.
Sainsbury's at the Poplars is a very, very busy shop. Three times I have been involved with this contraption, they seem to think that because the arrow says right of way, it gives drivers the right to drive dangerously or without due care.
I am an old lorry driver, grew up from a van boy, went through the industry, and finished up as a transport manager for a reputable company.
I have been saying that people are being taught to drive by the wrong people. It takes years to become a driver, you cannot learn to drive by sitting behind a desk or reading a book. It actually came back to me recently, I was watching, very interestingly a chap putting people through driving lessons. He asked me are you interested, I said yes, I asked him were you a lorry driver, he said no. I could have told him some stories.
