Re: Hands on the wheel

If you watch 'Road Wars' 'Traffic Cops' and 'Interceptors', you'll notice that Hendon no longer exerts the influence it once did ;) Well, you live and learn. And there was me thinking that the driving was so bad on these shows that they were all just jobbing actors; and that Road Wars and Intercept...

One should be equally smooth and progressive with all controls : braking , steering , acceleration .

Good luck doing 3 stage braking in a modern dual clutch car! ;)

Re: Survey

I agree, that like so many surveys, we sometimes want an "it depends" answer, and, in my opinion, some of those answers probably have nothing to do with political opinion/allegiance. But thank you for giving up your time to look at it Agreed. However, I completed the questionnaire purely ...

Re: Masters assessment

But, that does raise the question as to why you use the word "continuous"? Are you using it in the context of being focused upon, or concentrated on, the far distance. Nope, simply to separate it from discontinuous views, where sections of road are visible. I now understand. I read the wo...

Re: Masters assessment

Full paragraph from that post [my subsequent bolding]: Does that mean that I don't look to the distance? Of course I do :) Into the distance, glances across views etc. But . . . I don't use those long continuous views in any 'thirds'-style manner. Perhaps because I've never been taught it or really...

Re: 'Advanced' - a solicitor writes

As for court, I thought we were supposed to get a jury of our peers, so really it shouldn't be a jury of anyone unless they're also advanced trained. It's worse than that. It's magistrates who know nothing about driving apart from shock, horror, speed dangerous!!! :o :o :o :lol: :lol: :lol: ( it's ...

Re: Masters assessment

And this is where I'm confused by responses: do you not agree with the the way cognitive bias can affect judgement and decisions on-road, or are you suggesting that certain drivers are exempt (see, another 'masters'/advanced police reference) or immune from them? :? :?: And this is where I'm confus...

Re: Masters assessment

So asking someone to concentrate on the far distance (which they must do to implement any variation of 'thirds') MUST take concentration away from the near distance. Nobody, who advocates using the "thirds" rule correctly, will ever... " ask someone to concentrate on the far distance...

Re: Masters assessment

This is more the issue. We have a finite amount of concentration and, allied with techniques such as chasing the limit point, is - necessarily - putting attention into the distance potentially missing hazards which are closer. Directing attention like this is known to take it from elsewhere (eg bas...
