Re: Let's Talk More

Eye contact can be very helpful. I think the best advice is when in doubt revert to the Highway Code. That way every one should understand. I say should but I do wonder sometimes if some drivers can remember anything in the HC. It's pretty obvious a very large number of drivers can't. TBH, with the...

Re: Roads they been a changin'

We have stop/start on our van and at first I didn't like it; however now I enjoy the moments of peace it brings and it rarely causes any sort of problem. It seems intelligent and can judge when to stop/start and when not to (if the vehicle has been left unused a while?) very well. I do not find it ...

Re: Intelligent Speed Assistance - coming soon?

Re: Pedestrian killed by self driving car.

"The vehicle operator is relied on to intervene and take action. The system is not designed to alert the operator." It's totally pointless then. :roll: Nigel. Possibly the opposite! The system learns from those occasions where the safety driver intervenes. Don't Tesla have autopilot perma...

Re: On Potholes and Positioning

And despite the appalling state of our roads, Cambs council can still find money for pointless speed limit reductions :bash: :bash: :bash:
