Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Thanks, Jon. To clarify, are they "100+" locations? The reason I ask is because they are both different. The A832 example I would happily use the full width, but from the view Google provides there is already a full view of the road width and surface, so no view is added from using an exte...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

PS grow up and give up on the 'stupid' comments. If I'm wrong, prove it.

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

To answer both: Gareth: no, of course not. Stefluck: find a bend where offsiding at 100+ can be justified while maintaining a clear stopping distance to the nearside Surprise Horizon and take some photos please. Or just a Google maps Street view link will do. Whatever, those photos (however much the...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

. . . you position your vehicle for safety,view and stability and like most if you have an extreme offside position although I don’t know why you would travelling at the speed limit,it is only more advantageous at high speeds ie three figures and above however if you do it at whatever speed we have...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

As I've posted before, an ex-Hampshire trafpol (who retired early and emigrated in the 80s) told me that on at least one of his advanced courses (he was double 1, car & bike) they had to remain in lane. If I'd known that, 30+ years later, I'd be repeating it then I would have paid more attention...

Re: First accident...

Keeping in mind that calls are likely to be recorded, you may wish to consider terms and descriptions such as "interesting that their recollections have altered", rather than 'fraud' ;)

Re: First accident...

I'm surprised the threat of court action is already being spoken of. From my experience of 2 incidents, the first court action was nearly 3 years after the event and the second almost 2 years after. I only have experience of two court near misses ;) Filly, as mentioned above. IIRC collision was in ...

Re: First accident...

Filly nearly ended up as a witness due to her Insurance Co threatening another company as they hadn't paid up after their customer tail-ended her. Case never went to court, they paid up.

Re: First accident...

- I am indeed a student! Didn't realise the NUS could help with legal stuff... I don't know that they can/will - but it's well worth checking.
