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.

Don't know if that makes a difference tho'

Re: Shocking driving? Not all the time

If anything, it was the Honda going from lane 1 of the juction to lane 2, forcing the BMW into lane 3. Perhaps they object to "performance" cars in general?

As you near the roundabout, there are old and worn road markings that contradict the new ones

Re: Turn left?

The intention is clear, shame they didn't burn off the old road markings tho'.

But the A12 is still 2 lanes at the roundabout exit.

I thought using paint to restrict traffic through junctions and r'bouts was restricted to Essex

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...

Watched from Colchester Utd stadium next to A12. Some of them flew over at <1000ft

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...
