Right, after todays drive to work I have to get this off my chest. If anyone knows Barnet/Cockfosters/Cuffley area you’ll know that the stereotypical 4x4 owner (female, yummy mummy , rich etc etc) lives here. This morning I was taking my normal route to work which at one point consists of a road that dips down before a fairly steep climb. At the bottom of the road was the normal puddle which always forms here after heavy rain. The puddle covers half of each side of the road and so traffic travels into the middle of the road to avoid it. To give you an example of the depth it could easily be driven straight through at low speed by any average car. In fact for those of you how live up Norf it’s the kind of puddle you probably have to step over every time you leave your house!!! However, today I had to stop behind a stationary X5 that wouldn't drive through the puddle but had to wait to drive around it because two X5’s and a Ranger Rover Sport coming the other way were creeping down the middle of the road to avoid the puddle on their side. Finally as the X5 in front of me moved on and I drove happily straight through the water a brand new GL coming the other way nearly took off the road whilst swerving for the puddle of her side.
