Re: Near miss

Good to hear that you are OK and that there were no injuries or damage. It's interesting to hear that you remember little about the detail of what happened. Regularly after crashes drivers claim to remember exactly that they were travelling at legal speeds, with safe distances, and that they had use...

Re: Requirements for paid driving work

I suspect that where hotels get away with it is when the service is a complementary service and thus there is no direct charge specifically for the transportation - so the transportation is not being done for reward as the same charge is being made to the punter regardless of whether or not they ar...
