When my wife, daughter and I were travelling in a rented car through Nottingham, England, on our way to a cousin’s home in the Northern suburbs. I became thoroughly confused by the maza of circular and one way street. Finally, we spotted a policeman and pulled up to ask directions. We were surprised when he removed his tall helmet, opened the back door and slid in beside our daughter. “It will be much easier to show you.” He explained, we went through a series of left and right turns, traffic and even short input up a one way lane the wrong way. 20 minutes later we arrived at an entersection. ‘Now you will be alright, announced our guide. Just twin here, stay on the road for eight or nine kilometres and you are there.’  With that, you opened the door, got out, replaced his helmet in and strode briskly off.
