Re: Change in police pursuit policy?

I think the question stands. Given the pressure on police budgets, even as a "message" it is very expensive and is very likely to result in even fewer RPU cars on the road. I understand and accept fully that the miscreants need to understand they will no longer get a free pass but, let's b...

Re: Change in police pursuit policy?

For all the upsides, there is, inevitably, a really big downside. Every time they use a car to "take out" a scooter they damage the car. Depending on the level of damage that car will be off the road for at least a couple of weeks, and quite often a lot longer. In more severe cases the car...

Re: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

So what do you suggest, that I shut up, encouraging that blissful ignorance? You could just answer the question: What speed would you consider safe there? Personally, I don't believe that anyone living in that property would ever drive straight out so simply moving slightly away on approach would b...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

I had the same initial reaction as you. I cannot see that the BMW has done anything wrong and even if he did it certainly wasn't bad enough to warrant posting on a national news site. The police officer says that they have had a 50% increase in videos submitted. Well duh! if you run a multi-force ca...

Re: Turn left?

Yes. AFAIK, you are correct. Arrows on the road are only advisory. It is the wording and the signage that make it mandatory. The signage, AFAIK, are the blue circular ones that give a positive instruction. e.g. Turn Left, Turn Right or Ahead Only. You sometimes see them attached to the side of traff...

Re: BBC News article - Highways England launches campaign to stop tailgating

The A34, in my experience, is a wonderful road. Fast, relatively empty (compared to M40/M25) and in good condition. A34 is my preferred route from Oxford heading south.

Re: private message

It's not stuck. The message remains in the sender's outbox until the recipient has read it. If you are used to standard email client behaviours then it can be confusing at first.

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Thanks, Jon. To clarify, are they "100+" locations? The reason I ask is because they are both different. The A832 example I would happily use the full width, but from the view Google provides there is already a full view of the road width and surface, so no view is added from using an ext...
