During the forty or so years I have been driving I have had many different cars; probably more than 40. I have had Austin, Alfa, Audi, BMW, Citroen, Daihatsu, Datsun, Fiat, Hillman, Lada, Mazda, Morris, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Skoda, Triumph, Vauxhall and VW. This led me to think about what the important things really are in a car.
During the past few weeks I have noticed that as I take my daily walk it appears to me that the traffic is moving at a greater speed than usual. I believe my view is supported by many people and indeed the police have advised that despite the low volume of traffic due to “lockdown” the speed limits have not been suspended.
When the present nastiness eventually passes and, if we survive, the world we knew before corona virus may have changed a great deal.

It is normal to spend huge amounts of time in the close company of our nearest and dearest and we are made to feel guilty even if we venture forth for exercise or a trip to the supermarket.
