About the Author
L. J. K. Setright has been writing for Car magazine for 33 years, is a world expert on tyres and expresses forthright views on such things as speed limits, taxation, and pollution, and offers fascinating divagations on anything from the origins of the word 'dashboard' to the maximum speed of a rain drop (18mph, unaided by wind).
