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

Must be easy enough to get a camera that can measure the gap and fine appropriately. I think the problem with this is that if you get cut up by someone just as you're going through one of these enforcement cameras, then you could get fined for tailgating because of one brief moment where you were a...

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

However, when there is heavy congestion and traffic grinds to a halt, the gaps close right up to a couple of feet, particularly in lane 1. How do you account for that? If people did leave decant gaps there would be a lane-changing circus. Lane changing will happen whenever drivers think they can ga...

It may well be, as I said, I don't know the results.

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 (the undertaker having the perception that if you aren't right up the chuff of the vehicle in front you aren't going fa...

Re: No more classic cars allowed on motorways!

Cars might be better, but I suspect because of that many drivers are paying /much/ less attention to what's going on outside the car. The rates of injury and death on the roads has reduced and done so substantially. I do not believe this is all down to secondary safety and that some of it at least ...

Re: No more classic cars allowed on motorways!

When 80 on motorways was mentioned a couple of years back, the bit most people missed was 'Where it could be enforced'. You'd have the same here, so only implemented on smart motorways. If the current enforcement threshold was maintained, that would me tickets @90mph. And given that (if it's not cha...
