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

I know. We could employ people who would drive on busy roads. Not only could they judge these and other driving matters, but they could also act as a visual deterent. we could call them "traffic police"

Re: Kit car?

Would love to see the NCAP tests, any Ncap test offset or straight on, would probably look like a ten year olds bedroom, IF you could get them off their Ipods. :lol: Can't remember whether this was posted before... Probably not quite as spectacular as a 1:1 model though J2ECwX7Dl0c I'm currently bu...

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. You needn't worry about being sued - that's what the 3rd party insurance is for, or of being called a...

Re: Reg Local - Autobahn Driving (new video)

Pah, that's cheating doing it in a car with some performance. Try playing in the autobahn fast lane with a 3-pot 70bhp fiesta with a vmax of <100 mph. And yes, I did manage to keep it at vmax for a while, but it takes a /lot/ of planning :lol: When I used to regularly do Liverpool to home on a Sund...

Re: Let's Talk More

I know what you mean about the impasse that sometimes occurs, but eye contact usually resolves these matters.

Re: The joys of driving in Sussex!! Webcam footage

Personally I think all dashcam users/owners should be required to provide all footage for anyone who wants to go through and find fault with their driving. I've noticed a distint uptick in correlation between cars with dashcams fitted and substandard driving by the same car. To each their own. From...
