Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

unless this unseen hazard has a higher chance of being in one place or another. But it often does. Superelevation, the transition from road crown to and from superelevation and the change in the degree of superelevation across the width of the roadway all make it more likely for the road to be slip...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

added stability = added speed added stability = added contingency (e.g. in the event of a blowout) for me a lot of driving is about adding the ability for speed or contingency - if you can add both, then happy days - otherwise, it tends to be a choice between choosing speed or contingency...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

But only using one at a time. If the hypothetical oil/ice patch is on only one side of the road, the chances of it being on the near side presumably equal those of it being on the off side (exempt conditions where one side experiences more weather than the other - and then you choose the obviously-...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

for me, offsiding has one of two purposes: - opening up vision - straightening the path opening up vision might be a way of just checking the extra bits on a bend through which I can see, or it might be to gain earlier vision around the bend, either way, I would come back in early enough that the sp...

Re: I did a bad thing. How do I improve?

Also thanks for the suggestions of driving instructors/courses. I'm already aware of most of them and their great reputations, but the reason I haven't used them is simply distance. North of Carlisle/Newcastle would be where I'm looking, but I know that rather limits my options! For the cost of a c...
