Grateful

I FEEL I must respond to Mr Thomas Warren's letter (South China Morning Post, May 4) concerning the state of driving standards in the territory.


Although I am in the dark as to which country Mr Warren lived in before coming here, perhaps he has experienced the driving habits of the ''chee sin'' English.


Even to recollect a few of the moments that I would endure on the M25 (London's orbital highway) in driving rain, thick fog, snow or more importantly, on fine, clear afternoons, reduces me to feeling grateful for our public light buses, heavy goods vehicles, KMB drivers. Having 40-ton trucks whistling past your wing mirrors is no fun, especially when they are entering dense banks of fog or finding hidden black ice to slide upon.


Oh yes, give me the Cross Harbour Tunnel's three kilometres per hour any time of day.
