Re: Masters - Journalist failed, then passed

Add British bike into the mix (also I was taught on starting - do the above then switch back to footbrake before pulling away) :D Ahh, the years roll by...

Re: Pedestrian killed by self driving car.

Last week's news: 26 March Police have indicated that the accident has been referred for criminal investigation, and the NTSB is also present. The family (only a stepdaughter is identified) have retained counsel, and are demanding charges and considering legal action. Plus a fairly comprehensive bre...

Re: Pedestrian killed by self driving car.

Perhaps an attitude of 'my car is driving itself so get out of the way' is creeping in. How I wonder is the hapless pedestrian supposed to distinguish which vehicle is doing what, and when?

Re: I'm bemused...

I met a delivery driver (delivered my Prius a few years back) who told me about the time he delivered a car with radar-adaptive cruise (gave a 'safe' distance between you and the car in front). He said he set it to keep its distance, then some time later the motorway slowed due to congestion, then s...
