How to Tell Where the Driver is From....

One hand on wheel, one hand on horn:   Dundee

One hand on wheel, two fingers out window:   Paisley

One hand on wheel, one hand on newspaper, foot solidly on accelerator:  Ayr

One hand on wheel, cradling cell phone, brick on accelerator:  Stirling

Both hands on wheel, eyes shut, both feet on brake, quivering in terror : Skye, but driving in Glasgow

Both hands in air, gesturing, both feet on accelerator, head turned to talk to someone in back seat: St Andrews (old age pensioners - I've seen them!)

One hand on lap, one knee on wheel, cradling cell phone, foot on brake, mind on game: Rugby supporter from any Borders town.

One hand on wheel, one hand on hunting rifle, alternating between both feet being on the accelerator  and both on the brake, throwing a McDonalds bag out the window: Glasgow

One hand on wheel, one hand hanging out the window, keeping speed steadily at 70mph, driving down the center of the road unless coming around a blind curve, in which case they are on the right side of the road: Inverness

One hand constantly refocusing the rear-view mirror to show different angles of the BIG hair, one hand going between mousse, brush, and rat-tail to keep the helmet hair going, both feet on the accelerator,  poodle steering the car: Edinburgh

Four wheel drive pickup truck, shotgun mounted in rear window, beer cans on floor, squirrel tails attached to antenna: Stornoway

Two hands gripping wheel, blue hair barely visible above window level, driving 35 mph on the motorway in the right lane with the right blinker on: Pitlochry
