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...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

The reason that I offside as per Roadcraft is to maintain view not maintain speed it’s the view that allows you to maintain speed or progress so you yourself drive on what you see is the information that allows this . Anyone who extends view or offside to maintain speed then you are sacrificing saf...

Re: Ultra low emmission zone

out as far as Coulsdon, well south of Croydon. Something perhaps I should have been aware of, or has this been kept quiet? :evil: The map I saw suggests that in October 2021 it will be extended to just inside the north/south circular, with those roads being specifically excluded. AIUI, the initial ...

Re: Use of ZF 8-speed auto gearbox (BMW and other makes)

In the days of old where brake fade was a very real and common problem, I could understand the hesistance to use brakes - but modern braking systems are so good that I wouldn't have thought using the brakes to control your speed going downhill would be such an issue now? It depends... for heavy veh...
