Tips for Drivers in Devon, UK
Driving in Devon, England, is an entirely different driving experience to the rest of the country. This is mainly due to the incredible geography of the county in which the field and hedgerow reigns supreme, and the fact that most roads are slightly narrower than one car-width. While it is a beautiful experience to drive through a leafy green tunnel, your car surrounded on all sides, it can also be a hazardous one. This necessitates an interesting set of laws and helpful suggestions:
Learn the fine art of staring another driver down. Inevitably, you will encounter the situation in which two cars are face-to-face, neither one prepared to back down and reverse to a passing area (ie, a fork in the road or another spot where the road is miraculously large enough to accommodate two cars). Be prepared for this occurrence by having either a really nice car which says 'Get out of my way!' or a really crappy car which says 'I don't care what happens to this piece of junk; can you say the same about yours?'. Perfect the look of the driver who has already backed up twice to allow another car to go by and is not planning to do it again. Good luck!
