Re: A few more videos

Very nice video Mike and great riding. I though your "position 2 and half" was interesting. Have you taken the advanced car test as well...Obs test...Masters? The 2.5 was picked up by someone else who uses "between 2 and 3". If I was starting out again I'd use the 5 lane positio...

Re: A Very Good Read

Auto pilot? Pah! :o

Watch this. It's more involved than driving the car yourself! :?



Lots of interesting videos about his Tesla car, the software and how it copes with UK roads on his channel.

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

Because the technology has got it wrong and the speed limit is 60 and not the 40 the car thinks it is. That does not need WOT. A good shove, maybe, but push right through to the floor? Really? And what do you think will happen when people do that on a damp/greasy road surface, or when crossing pain...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

... and why would you want to use WOT to push through the limiter, even if only briefly? Because the technology has got it wrong and the speed limit is 60 and not the 40 the car thinks it is. Or, the 'get out of the way' situation. A car has come round a corner very fast when you are coming out of ...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

You need to go and read up on what they mean by speed limiter. It is much more invasive than the limiter that many of us use in our cars to avoid 'creep' in long inappropriate limits.

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

I'm quite happy for them to come back to me. They were the ones who shut down the private forum for discussion and said they were happy to wash their dirty laundry in public. I had my wrists slapped a while back direct from the last standards guy (Mark ???? ) about some comments. Told him they need ...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

I share your pain. But I have a way of mitigating the frustration, irritation and exasperation. :) I do not regard myself, and never have, as "working for the IAM". I have always regarded myself as "working for the associate". So, as far as I'm concerned, the IAM is simply a mea...
