Re: Why - what does it matter?

No. The same inference would probably apply if the car was BMW, Audi, Lotus, Aston Martin, Jaguar or the like. But when you read quotes like "very experienced cyclist", the article has tried the driver and found him guilty. Joe Public will criticise a Porsche doing 50 in a national, when h...

Re: Why - what does it matter?

In the first instance, they stated it was a Porsche with the inference that the car was going [too] fast

Re: New Audi A6 - not able to switch off Stop/Start function

Your stop start activates with the car in gear and the clutch down? That's a serious flaw! I think thes...

Re: Hazard perception test now features more weather conditions

I did the HPT 15 years ago when I was trying to become an ADI and said then that I didn't think it was fit for purpose. As Mike says, experienced drivers click too early.

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

As hir suggests, the road is too new for detailed images on google earth, but looking at potential areas for this roundabout, they all seem to have an exit between where the BMW joins the roundabout and where it leaves.

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time
