Re: IAM (Roadsmart) Skills day

In your car or their cars? Our cars, didn't know Micra could do 75 in 3rd :shock: all morning as well. Only problem was gearstick centre boss fell out, put it down to poor maintenance/vibration :D I didn't know a Micra could do 75 at all! ;) When I learnt to drive in my instructor's Micra, I swear ...

Re: Mazda removing touchscreens from cars

What I'd like to see and have is total voice control of all vehicle settings and functions. I wouldn't like that - I have a bit of a 'deaf accent' caused by my failure to pronounce my consonants, and this makes it an absolute nightmare when I'm trying to get voice activated things to understand me....

Re: First accident...

That's called 'target fixation', and anyone can be caught out by it. It can work in at least a couple of ways. One is probably your crash situation, you are concerned about one thing so overlook others. They other happens in 'panic!' emergency situation, when your vision narrows down, you tense up,...

Re: First accident...

Phew - well done for attending court and undergoing questioning. I've never been to court but I'm sure it's a very concerning and worrying time. It's good you are pleased with the process as well. So what can you learn from the collision itself and when are you going to do your advanced test? The m...

Re: First accident...

So, the case was heard at Liverpool Family and Civil court yesterday, 10:30 start and didn't wrap up until aboyt 5:30! Bloody long day but I felt it was a very good result. My barrister absolutely tore the taxi driver's case to pieces whilst questioning him and threw doubt on all elements of the cla...

Re: First accident...

There was an update of sorts a month or so ago. My solicitor emailed me a court date, 5th of June. The solicitors hope it won't go to court, but I've yet to hear anything otherwise. I apologise for my lengthy lack of presence on these forums, life has been very chaotic, and unfortunately I became ye...

Re: Who goes first?

I can only recall one junction I've come across like this, here . I may have come across others but never commited the layout to memory due to not coming across them that often. Here's another. https://goo.gl/maps/N21hTTWoL972 I think you'll find you've come across plenty. It is fairly common at a ...

Re: Hazard perception test now features more weather conditions

I have no idea when I would be expected to click on those tests. Ideally it should be when you start to plan to do something about it, not when it all starts to go wrong. I'm sure I'd fail miserably as I did when I tried the practice ones available online (clicking too early). Amusingly, when I was...

Re: Who goes first?

Right of way is not really a thing in our traffic laws, it is more normally phrased as priority, which does tie in with your understanding of ‘first dibs’ for whoever arrives first... However if both are there at an identical time then car A is disrupting the flow of traffic so I would expect car B...
