As cars came into view on the same side of the road, the emergency warning lights flashed, only to be turned off till the next car or two appeared. It struck me that this manner of warning other motorists, was worryingly erratic. After all, the driver was also supposed to be concentrating on getting the vehicle to start again. The driver could, at the very least, have misjudged the speed of oncoming cars in the process.
I waved on the waiting traffic, and I went on my way.
