White van man safety bubble. - henry k
I have been a white van man for the day.
An interesting experience.
I have never driven with an automatic sfety bubble around my vehicle.
It might have been caused my driving "style" but all cars gave me a wide berth.
Other white van men were no trouble to me at all.
Oh well back to being tailgated etc. tomorrow and dreaming of an automatic safety bubble.

I had a very similar experience a couple of years ago whilst a passenger in a Police car....
everyone behaved perfectly.

and laws were most numerous when the commonwealth was most corrupt. Tacitus, Annals

After our traffic accident (hire Fiesta from Malpensa hit by a HGV from behid), then observation on Italian traffic police for lift from hospital after treatment:

- probably no room in rear due to weapons
- room made due to weapons cases now in boot of the estate car - and it was full
- we drive off
- get on AutoStrada
- lights on police car turned on
- people slow to move out of way of police car doing 130 kph in a 90 kph limit... but of course we do not slow. Not cool for Italian police.
- wished I'd put seat belt on due to neck brace etc.... assumed safe
- mobile phone rings and driver answers and chats
- driver continues to scare us and we wonder if we're due back in the hospital soon!

I really ought to post a pic of the hire Fiesta on the MSN website. I keep mentioning it. Scary but also proof a new super mini has a strong structure.

I drive a LWB sprinter occasionally - treatment is very different to what I experience in the Accord!

Its not just being a white van though - my little Suzuki is techinically a white van but I still get tailgated by other vans, but then mine doesnt have the poke that a Merc Sprinter does.

Even better "safety bubble" drive a very battered Mk I short wheel base Landy in London, even taxis give you a wide berth, especially if well covered in genuine ordure !!!
Fellow student had one in London in the early 60s and found his way cleared almost magically.
