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.

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...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

IMHO you should count yourself lucky. I had an XE as a hire car with it fitted and it was very good at spotting irrelevent signs (with countdown markers or on side roads) or missing signs that were slightly obscured.
