3 March: Exit slowly

That's the fourth time recently, when driving into Durham, that I've got held up behind a funeral.

Is there any sort of etiquette about roaring past a hearse and the following cars when you get to the dual carriageway? Should you raise your hat as a mark of respect? Or simply refrain from cursing the 25 miles an hour procession when you are now definitely going to be late for that meeting?

Doff your hat! I always feel the need to turn off my radio, for some reason, when passing a funeral procession.

I drive past fairly slowly and then put my foot down when I'm well past.

But it's always when you're cutting it fine for time, isn't it?
