True, but an accepted part of everyday life for the inhabitants of Airstrip One.

wouldn't make any difference, they already drive around in cars with little engines, such as 1.4s and below, thats why they're always driving like nutters and revving the nutts off the cars.
Easy solution. Make them drive diesels. It hard to go fast in a diesel, and even harder to make it sound like a race car, just like a tractor

Paul Ripley, one of the country's leading safe-driving experts used to write a column where he stressed having a cocoon of safety around your vehicle - basically keeping a safe distance from other vehicles. Maybe cyclists should do the same. i.e. if a car cuts you up then slow down till it gets out the way and try not to provoke an adverse reaction in the driver by any sort of physical contact with the car. I believe cyclists have the "high moral ground" but many car drivers don't see it that way.
The fact is you don't know who is driving that car - it could be anyone from a saint to an armed criminal.
