I know this may sound a daft question but what is considered officially to be a 'long distance' in driving terms. The reason I ask is that someone has been told not to drive long distances by their GP but their perspective of a long distance and someone else's is different. Smile

When I was a lad in transport there was four type of driving criteria
1. Local, any one driving locally or within a 100ml radius of depot and which could come back to the depot during the day at any time
2. Middle distance, anyone diving within the day, say from 6am-6pm but would very rear have a night away from depot
3. Distance , any would driving throughout the UK and having 2/3 nights ways each week
4. Long distance, any one away from depot over 5 nights a week,

That's great Mick, thank you. I definitely think the person concerned is not driving 'long distance'.
