Driving with a friend yesterday we were stick behind a ‘sans permis’, and I idly said that I seem to see more and more of them driven by young people rather than the very mature. I wondered whether they were inheriting their granny’s cars.
Of course not she said “all the people who have lost their licence because of dangerous or drink driving just get one instead of a real car”. What!!! You lose you licence but are still allowed to manipulate a vehicle on public roads…is that illogical or what?
What about insurance I asked, if they have a poor driving record. “Oh, the sans permis vehicles are usually uninsured as nobody will insure them”. She went on to say that her sister-in-law (who is someone so daft that she is dangerous as a pedestrian) had failed her driving test 5 times, so now has just got a sans permis and found the insurance too expensive so hasn’t bothered as apparently it’s not a requirement. If this is all true, then how mad!
I will now avoid those yoghurt pots like the plague!
