Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

A lot of these are simply explained by lack of signals from other drivers, and sudden avoiding action. Not ideal, but better than crashes. I think the key thing with the BMW one is that the video is taken from a 3rd car that you never see because you're inside it. It's the effect on that driver that...

Re: First accident...

I was off the accelerator, but in 4th or 5th so not much engine braking. I probably lost a couple of mph, but was probably about 25 mph or so. So if you get out for some more drives with David, perhaps the idea that 30mph through the city centre, in 4th or 5th, approaching a set of traffic lights, ...

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

Latest example. I think this was driven by having an impatient person behind me, who was just a bit too impatient, and me not recognising that [....] Turn right at a filter a few hundred meters further on and they pull up next to me giving me some 'friendly advice'. They've got 2 young kids in chil...

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

ADC - great introductory post, great self-awareness, interesting tangent into car control. My one thought when in a situation that increases heart rate, be it due to driver conflict, or following someone with a view to overtaking and noticing it's affecting my driving, is to back off and create spac...

Re: Rospa price increase

RoSPA have confirmed on their new Facebook group that the retest cost is still included in the yearly sub. They're being rather more coy about why they needed to almost double it in the first place, though, although I think they're about to announce some kind of insurance deal. If that turns out to ...
