Hilarious take on motoring from the AA. Will appeal equally to petrol-heads and those with a strong motoring aversion.This radical redrafting of the code of the highway sets out to reclaim the adventure of motoring as the sanctified mission of the gentleman. Ranking style and etiquette on an equal footing with the rules and regulations of the road, Vic Darkwood unleashes his new manifesto for gentlemanly driving on an unsuspecting public. The book contains a comprehensive guide to Gentlemanly driving, from the essentials of delegating the tiresome maintenance of your vehicle, to the etiquette of the road; from advice on dealing with authority, to suggestions for improvements to the current system of road signage; from a handy identifying guide to species of fellow motorist, to ways of bull shitting your driving test.
