Re: Hello all

welcome... it sounds as though your heart is in the right place - in having a personal desire to improve... the IAM course is one building block among many which can help you with that. You don’t mention where you live, but getting out with some of the other drivers on here can help understand that ...

Re: Proposal for new driving test regulations post initial test...

We are meant to be advocates of the road...so why don't we make a stand to make things change for the better. Its too much for the police to deal with, but think about all the resources u...

Re: Who goes first?

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 ...

Re: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

I don't think that the concept of the balance between progress and comfort is tricky - but the doing it certainly is...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

Ah, so the problem is really that the BMW is underpowered for the move he wanted to get away with. A few more horses and he'd have cleared with a bigger gap :racing: I love your thinking! :cheers: of course, were the BMW driver to be prosecuted, I assume that the prosecution will show evidence of c...

No different in that sense to speed cameras :roll:

Re: No more classic cars allowed on motorways!

I am not sure that public opinion really prevents it - there is a pretty standard disregard for the 70mph limit at present - all you would have to do is remind folks that basically they won't be booked for speeding as they are now and most will think that is a good idea... the speed at which people ...
