Re: What's around the bend?

Surprised the police allegedly took no action. The guy did well but it took him a while to react.

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

An observation: if one is driving leaving a decent gap there is a high probability that the gap will suddenly get filled by somebody from an inner lane or even by being undertaken... It's true it does happen but nothing like as often as you might imagine. I try and leave a larger gap than most on m...

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

Oh and by the way, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the constructive comments and warm welcome, it's much appreciated. It's good to see a relatively niche forum like this has a lot of regular posters with really constructive comments. OK...fancy an ADHUB driving day then? See the Brecon ...

Re: Drivers driving less, but more traffic?

Re: Potential downside of speed enforcement?

...I cant help but think that the study was designed to give the exact results that they wanted. Which it did. It's been designed to give an absolutely obvious result, that's as clear as the nose on your face, then cloaked it in 'science' to give it credibility. Not sure why you think that and in a...

Re: Let's Talk More

...Only if you get punted very gently, or your front tyres have got a huge amount of grip! True - but it does happen. One of our (Bristol Advanced Motorists) members is a policeman and only last year he had to attend a serious crash when exactly this happened - what would have been a rear-end shunt...

Ahh Gareth...that's almost poetic. I suspect a good number here are quite evangelistic about advanced driving as well.
