Last issue's Call Sign told DaC drivers about the Playtex
Moonwalk that took place in May around London, ending up in Battersea Park.
The event was in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer and involved 10,000 women
walking in their bras for up to 26 miles!
GILL HALL COMPLETES 26 MILE PLAYTEX MOONWALK
had volunteered to walk 26.2
Chelsea Bridge to join me in the final three miles, as I was
totally exhausted. I was so tired that I couldn't even speak to them, but
their presence gave me that final encouragement and push over the finishing
line that I really needed.

Playtex have asked Call Sign to thank all the drivers who helped pick up some of the 10,000 bra-clad women who competed in the Playtex Moonwalk which involved walking the equivalent of a Marathon or half-marathon.
|DAC ON RADIO SHOWS TO HELP CUT BAD DRIVING|
As the most well-known radio taxi organisation in London, Dial-a-Cab have
been approached by an insurance company and radio marketing organisation
to ask DaC drivers - renowned for their safe driving and courtesy - to
complete a survey on driving safely. Several London radio stations will be
using the results and these will include on-air discussions featuring DaC
Chairman Brian Rice on July 26.
The theme of the project is safe driving in London, particularly looking at other drivers bad habits from a cab driver's perspective and hopefully suggesting simple ways that personal and road safety can be improved.
The opportunity to tell London's drivers exactly what they are doing wrong is surely an opportunity not to be missed! The forms are available in Driver's Reception and in order to make the survey worthwhile, we need as many drivers as possible to complete a questionnaire. Call Sign is publishing the questions to give you time to consider your answers, but please, do not reply to this magazine. Only official questionnaires can be used. Just pop into Driver's Reception and fill one in...
1. Which do you consider are the three most frequent bad
or dangerous driving habits
that you witness on a regular basis in London?
2. What annoys you most about London drivers?
3. Which do you think is the most dangerous junction in London and why?
4. Which do you think is the most accident-prone road in London?
5. What single tip would you give to anyone driving in London for the first time?
6. What three things that you think regular London drivers could do to improve their city driving and reduce the chance of accidents?
7. What is the worst or most bizarre driving incident you have ever witnessed while driving in the Capital?
