Sounds busy for former taxi-drivers. It's a bad thing.

What am I:?:

Does it have anything to do with ascariasis, sarcoptic mange mite or other burrowing larval infestation?

Ascariasis is a debilitating human disease caused by the parasitic roundworm Ascaris lumbricoides. Perhaps as many as one quarter of the world's people are infected, and ascariasis is particularly prevalent in tropical regions and in areas of poor hygiene. Other species of the genus Ascaris are parasitic and can cause disease in domestic animals.


No.

Sarcoptic Mange Mites are tiny arachnids (cousins of ticks and spiders) that are parasites of mammals. They cause the disease known as "mange" or "scabies."

No.

No to any other diseases or infections.

Is this anagramic (again)?

Miss Hexa Gram will not be appearing, but
Miss Ana Gram said she might put in an appearance if it helps matters along, so long as she is not otherwise employed.

Ah! I've worked something out ...the missing 'x' in the last multiplication product 12 x 12 isn't a typo error. This is a wild hunch but is it something to do with reading road signs?.

Your right Cec, the missing x has something to do with accessing this clue, but it has nothing to do with road signs.

It has nothing to do with stopping distances or road vehicles.

The reason why the x is white has nothing to do with the clue, it's because if there is nothing between the two numbers the gap closes up, so ignore this, pretend there is nothing there.

The reason why a number has been made bold will become evident once you solved the underlying clue.

A Hexagram is two intersecting equilateral triangles which would therefor contain six sides or six lines. I note you have ruled out "road signs" as a clue but would this also exclude lines on the road ?

Sorry Cec for any misunderstanding but that post was in reply to udosuk's question of whether the riddle was anagramic in nature, in essence the answer is no.
I did imply, at the time, that I might use an anagram, but that looks unlikely at the moment.

You're on the wrong road here Cec, it has nothing to do with roads or road transport in anyway whatsoever.

It's a two word answer.

The first sentence relates to the second word.

Thanks Crazy Girl and sorry I'm a bit late in acknowledging your comment. Yes, I did notice this after pressing the quote button which is how I knew this blank space wasn't a typo error.

As for solving this riddle, I'm still deep in thought. The list of cars and the clue "it's busy" suggests to me " used car-yard" assuming this is a two word answer but it's another wild hunch.
