THE ancient Dorset sport of tailgating is on the rise.

With the winter evenings, there’s nothing more exciting than to keep a yards distance from the car in front.

I drive reasonably fast, and hopefully within the speed limit, but Dorset drivers ignore all this and frequently take bends wide, totally ignore speed limits and generally treat the roads as motorways.

Take your life in your hands is the motto of the day as you embark on a road journey in Dorset.

Please take more care, Dorset drivers!
