Driving in English

I turn with relish each week to the excellent Athens News' letters for the all-too common endearing/soppy/loony or just plain unmistakeably British submissions.

Here's a good one:

"I write to ask if it is possible to obtain the Greek Highway Code for motorists in English.

My enquiries at various bookshops have proved negative.

GS Monk, Messinia"

Editor responds:

"Transport ministry officials tell us that the Highway Code is available only in Greek.

The Athens News has written about the code when it was passed into law two years ago.

Here is the link."
