Re: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

Do you remember the thread about 1/3 or 2/3s rule for acceleration between hazards The “thirds rule” isn’t about “thirds” and it isn’t a “rule”. It’s a misnomer. Just remembered that there is another 'rule of thirds' - but similarly it's not a rule and doesn't (or shouldn't) use thirds :) It's the ...

Re: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

I'm glad that it wasn't me who called it a rule! And it's fairly obvious (to me anyway) that the sections can't be fixed length or equal - one aspect being that the more you accelerate (possibly taking more distance, depending on rate of acceleration) then more space may be needed for braking (depen...

Re: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

Ah, the old fallacy of lost revenue . . . As with music piracy, dating back to when people copied their LPs over to C90 tapes. "We're losing out on sales!" Actually, you're not unless a blank tape was the same price as an LP. - which wasn't the case, so they only lost one LP sale for the m...

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: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

Have a look at the picture! It's in a village, a stone wall about 8' high, 'vehicle'-sized aperture with huge fuggoff wrought iron gates just visible, with a nice weed-free gravel driveway. The wall is set back no more than a metre from the edge of the road. In other words, it would be reasonable to...

Re: Masters - Safety Vs Progress

Do you remember the thread about 1/3 or 2/3s rule for acceleration between hazards? I've only ever tried it for myself after reading about it on t'interweb. I don't like the way (from the way I read and [mis?]understood?) it seems to place emphasis on getting from 'Here >>>> there' which may remove...
