Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Yes, fully agree. There's a piece of road I use most days: https://goo.gl/maps/krX4QRqDPsA2 Parking area on left delineated by paint. Even when empty, drivers seem determined (as the one ahead in the photo) to not use the good surface, instead they head out right over the decaying join and closer to...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Ok, sorry if I had a hard of thinking moment :) I thought that you meant the 'offsiding for view at three figure speeds' statement made earlier (not by me, I've just asked about it). So if using emotive terms is bad form, let's refer back to Andy's description: Just LOSE the phrase "off siding&...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

If you train for one of the most dangerous manoeuvres to carry out on the road and become competent at it then there is no reason why you should get it wrong. Ok, I read it carefully, and found that bit particularly interesting :) No reason, ever? Do you really believe that? If you get it wrong, ar...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

It seems you are against extending /offsiding It seems I'm either not writing clearly or you're reading in an expectation of certain content. e.g.: . . . the view is only restricted from a near side approach so by extending straddle the centre line on the approach gives you equal distance for safet...
