Dear fellow road user …

Dear fellow road user,
I recognise your right to drive below the speed limit. Most of the time it’s not against the law and sometimes that’s the safer option.
But before you leave home next time you might consider whether or not the vehicle you’re driving has sufficient capacity for the caravan you’re towing.
You might also like to restrict your convoy to … um … one vehicle. 5 caravans/campervans/motorhomes driving nose to tail at 20km/hr under the speed limit are a hazard to navigation.
Today, I saw people towing vans who were able to pass you because their vehicles were adequate and able to do the actual speed limit.
Today, everyone was patient and only passed you safely. As far as I know we all made it home alive. That may not always be the case.
Spread out, pull over and consider that the rest of us are not grey nomads and don’t want to amble up the highway at a snail’s pace.
Just because you’ve never had an accident doesn’t mean you haven’t caused any.
Sincerely,
Me (safe at home, thank goodness).
