Unit forty three
Driving a car
One of the evenings Mr. Hill and a few participants decided to go to the cinema to see the film, the latest Oscar Award winner. Before the film was to start they had an hour at their disposal. And they decided to have a ride around London by Mr. Hill's car.
David: What would you like to see during this hour in London?
Anton: And what would you recommend?
David: We might have a ride through this entertainment area around Leicester Square and then through the Strand famous for its rich hotels. Then we could also drive to St Paul's Cathedral. It looks majestic in the evening lights.
Anton: We would be glad to see all that.
David: Then let's start the journey.
Anton: ... By the way, I know that when you were in Russia you hired a car and drove it a few days. Was it very difficult to drive on the right?
David: Oh, it was very difficult at first. It was necessary to concentrate... especially when I wanted to overtake. But the hardest were roundabouts. Well, you know, we Englishmen have always driven on the left and are accustomed to that.
Anton: Did you usuaully find the ways very easily?
David: I wouldn't say so. Once it was terrible. I was in a traffic jam for an hour and then I got lost. But finally everything was all right. I should let bygones be bygones.
Anton: I always wonder how fast your cars and buses go along these narrow streets. It is fantastic. You must be all very good drivers!
There are speed limits — 30 or 40 miles per hour in or near towns in England and 70mph on motorways. The driver must wear a seat belt and so must the front seat passenger. Two yellow lines on the load mean no parking. One yellow line means parking is restiicted. In some big towns the car may be clamped and towed away if it is parked illegally. It is very expensive to get the car back. All the rules and regulations on driving are fully described in The Highway Code.
Petrol stations or garages are often self-service. The driver can select 4 star (super), unleaded petrol or diesel from the automatic pump and pay the cashier. If the pump is not automatic there is an attendant to help.
