Oxford language? ;)

NB I would happily use a comma like that - rightly or wrongly :)


I think more of a pause than strictly appropriate use as an Oxford comma. I prefer the cadence of the sentence with it there.

Sometimes you need a grammar checker too ;)


Touché. In my defence, I don't expect to be taken seriously. :flail:

Re: Graduated licencing again

Not at all sure that BRAKE wrote that. I thought the article was written by Road Safety GB, and they were quoting something said by a member of BRAKE. But regardless of that surely we should look at the ideas, not whether somebody can spell, or whether their spell checker got it wrong? As was point...

Re: Graduated licencing again

OK. They got that one wrong. It's the last one in the article and just when they were doing so well. :)

Re: Motorists should be penalised for going just 1mph over the speed limit, Britain’s road policing chief says

See my earlier post about a colleague who was done for 41 in a 40. There's a twist: he supplied the evidence. IIRC Camera van was saying 48, but he had a GPS log which showed 41. Magistrates accepted his evidence and found him guilty anyway. Magistrates should have GPS trackers fitted on their bloo...

Not cost? I would have thought that the cost of the screen module is much less to fit initially and replace later than a whole raft of hard buttons and displays. If that's not the case then I am surprised. I do accept completely that consumers buy on the strength of the shiny shiny and "oooh, m...

Re: Why autonomous cars won't be able to drive properly...

Autonomous cars I fear will go the same way. There will be no choice. Just like trying to buy a car now that isn't full of infotainment **** that should be an option. I think Caterham are still offering new models for sale :twisted: /but agreed, and in particular touchscreens should be banned as da...
