Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

Dashcam footage! Moments in time and not the full story and not a way to do real policing.

Re: Recent drives in Europe

As a resident of Catalunya I wouldn't bother much with Andorra either as you can get caught coming both in and out as the place is not in the EU (see the future?). The place is all dull grey slate. The police/customs are entitled to pull you a certain distance from the frontier as well (50k?) and fr...

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

I find I mostly get followed too closely on single carriageway roads rather than dual and the offending vehicle is quite often an SUV type; we will often be the only vehicles on the road as well.

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

Driving around in a bright yellow MX5 I seem to be tailgated a fair bit (the interior mirror magnifies which is also annoying) and wonder if this is 'yellow jacket syndrome' in that people are attracted to bright colours and likely to give them less clearance; or trust them more perhaps.

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...
