My 500 has ways of telling me....

That I'm going too fast

I was on the Dual carriage way on the way to work and there is a section with a speed limit just before a junction so I was belting toward it and braked just as I was about to enter it... Say going from 70 (ish) to 40 really quickly and the little bleeder decided to tell all an sundry that I can't drive by putting on the hazard lights!

It's bad enough known that I'm a terrible driver but when your car starts to agree with you it's a lost cause....

Jim

Don't slam the brakes on! Then it won't tell people you can't drive.
