Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

I'm a bit late to this one but if anything this was all started by the little Honda Jazz. The BMW was entering into lane 2 of the RAB, but the jazz moved right into it rather than maintaining its nearside position. This forced the BMW into lane 3. Now really the BMW should have aborted and done a 36...

Re: Turn left?

Turn left?

Here's one to get your teeth into. We haven't had a driving/riding situation question for a while.

Can I turn left here from the right hand lane without doing a 360 round the roundabout?

"Drive" along the dual carriageway and tell me what paint/signs says I can't.

Re: New Member up for RoADAR re-test

Had my ROSPA motorcycle re-test a couple of days ago. Where did those 3 years go? Got another Gold ... that's a hatrick. I didn't notice any difference in how the test was conducted or the standard required. The debrief at the end was full, and honest, from both sides. Nothing that we didn't agree on.

Re: A few more videos

What was the kerfuffle with signalling at 19:20? The age old, should I, shouldn't I signal? He didn't see oncoming car from his position. I saw it as further forward, but debatable if my signal really was of any use to him. What happened at 28:36 - bit of an edit? Join in video files. My same make/...
