I agree, however worry that it is a task beyond reach.
Generally I've suggested the standard of driving is atrocious in terms of spacial awareness. Specifically there is an inability to overtake, a pet annoyance. More ridiculous, but a source of amusement rather than annoyance, is the inability to move out and pass a car that is slowing to turn left. Invariably arriving at the airfield I signal in plenty time that I am turning left off the 60mph road and noting there is nothing coming in the opposite direction I am bemused at the number of cars behind that slow, at times only accelerating when I am clear. Never even seems to enter their head to move across and pass.
I have a theory that much of the lacking in driving competence is masked by the fact there is so much traffic.
That’s for debate. Someone leaving the airfield and going back the way you came may see the chance to pull out to turn right and bang, speeding car on wrong side of road t -bones them. Unless sight lines are very good it’s risky imho.
