Re: Let's Talk More

There's a saying someone posted, I think on here: 'courtesy causes confusion'. Being pro-social (random acts of kindness) has its place for making the world a better place. However, being helpful shouldn't p1$$ other people off in the process :) I'm surprised that "courtesy" has been asso...

Re: Let's Talk More

... when waiting to turn right across oncoming traffic[, w]ith the wheels straight ahead, if you get punted from behind then that's the direction you'll go. Wheels turned, however ... Only if you get punted very gently, or your front tyres have got a huge amount of grip! David I'm thinking of drive...

Re: Let's Talk More

Regards 'turning the wheels', worth noting that there's one situation where that's not a good idea. That's when waiting to turn right across oncoming traffic. With the wheels straight ahead, if you get punted from behind then that's the direction you'll go. Wheels turned, however ...

Re: Let's Talk More

Re: Let's Talk More

It astounds me when there are drivers waiting to emerge - but apparently off in their own little world, not even aware of the traffic around them, let a...

Re: Let's Talk More

. . . the sort of informal days, where we meet up and go for short drives together, taking it in turns to drive our own car for perhaps an hour to an hour and a half, then say what with hindsight are dumb comments about John's acceleration and make try poor attempts at implementing cornering techni...

Re: Good evening...

Hello Hello and welcome! Ask questions :) Some of the best improvements in training that I've provided have come when trainees have asked me to justify what I've suggested to them. Often, the 'accepted wisdom' has actually evolved from 'Chinese whispers' as information has cascaded down, becoming d...
