Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

Quite rightly, the incident involving the van driver who drove through the red lights on the pedestrian crossing was followed up by the police. I'm just surprised he wasn't prosecuted for Driving Without Due Care and Attention or even Dangerous Driving :shock: Extract from today's BBC website: Near ...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

...of course, were the BMW driver to be prosecuted, I assume that the prosecution will show evidence of camera angles / compression of the space / etc. - it is allowable for one car to pass another - the fact that you can record it on your dashcam doesn't make it near / scary or dangerous! Alasdair...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

Hir - I know which frame you're talking about. It does look like the BMW "cuts across the bows" but if the camera car moved lanes in between the rear and forward facing shots, then it's in the wrong, not the BMW. That's why I want to look on Google Maps or the like at road markings. I thi...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

I have a video still of the BMW cutting across the bows of the video car but have no idea how to upload it onto this forum. Can anyone advise how to do this, please?

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

3) The BMW driver was at fault for deciding to "go for it" on the exit when he should probably have gone round again. I don't see that. The BMW avoided and passed the Honda smoothly when it changes lanes, and was in the correct lane (as far as I can tell) for the exit. It all happens very...

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

I saw this BBC News article this morning - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-norfolk-45843691/shocking-dashcam-videos-released-by-norfolk-and-suffolk-police Most of the examples are egregious - but 20 seconds in, can anyone see what the white BMW has done wrong? I can't - I'd like to have a ...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

And, to bring us back to where we started, which is about car salesmen being trained to sell cars and finance and not understanding most of the details, we can now understand that a salesman's job is to sell us the bundle of extras, half of which we don't want or need, and then persuade us to buy i...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

Yes I don't understand why if the car is being built to order, you can't specify exactly the options you want...are there any mass manufacturers that do this? I had this frustration with my rather more modest Focus ST - I didn't particularly want leather seats but I did want Xenon headlights...ST3 ...
