A retired RAF pilot is to appear in a Channel 5 programme which aims to improve the road habits of irresponsible drivers, after conceding that he has got into ‘bad habits’ over the years.dent in a car door

70-year-old Dudley Valentine, who lives in the village of Burscough in Lancashire, will star in the new series of Dangerous Drivers’ School in February, which follows AA instructors as they look to develop the skills of some of the country’s problem road users.

In an interview, Valentine said that he was convinced to seek this innovative form of help after his partner claimed he was ‘aggressive and inconsiderate’ towards others, having become complacent after more than half a century of driving.

Mr Valentine is certainly still extremely active and shows that even if you prefer walk in showers, baths or any other mobility aids, mellowing in your behaviour does not always accompany growing older!
