Driving us crazy

If you own a car you'll know that you sometimes have to wait a while to see a roadside petrol station, and you'll probably pass quite a few which have closed down. Sometimes these will have been re-colonised by a second hand car dealership, or perhaps a 'hand car wash' where for a fiver a group of people will give your car an instant valet.

There's an interesting article here via the Daily Mail on the way that this is forcing us to drive further than we would otherwise do.

Something to discuss, in terms of the changes that happen in our local areas that we don't always appreciate.

I remember the hose that ran along the forecourt that made a 'ding' when a car drove over it... You don't see many of those these days either...
