    This is the scene outside my house - the road is flooded to a depth on about a foot at its deepest, and washing onto my drive as cars pass.

    So, having been out there for a couple of hours asking kindly for people to slow down and observing the behaviour patterns, guess which types of vehicle don't slow down, and the predominant colours?

    Oh and a bonus question, guess the follicle state, body size, outer clothing and vehicle type of the chap who told me to "f**k" myself when I smiled and motioned for him to slow a little?
