I was driving in one of the pilot 20mph zones in Bristol earlier today...and I got overtaken...by a seagull. He had absolutely no idea of the roadcraft method and pulled in much too early in front - well within my stopping distance. Is this a sign of things to come?

Currently stood in a queue outside Leeds academy (since 3:30) and that's made my day! (So far. ;) )

Schoolboy error, (s)he was following ATC instructions. :)
