Re: Who goes first?

" When did you last see it happen"...........Almost every time when my wife and I go shopping, at a particular busy junction near my home it's offside to offside. Sadly though you are correct in that an ever growing number of drivers are too lazy to turn the steering wheel more and end up ...

Re: Who goes first?

I suppose the question which would be more challenging is what if the two cars met each other, and both wanted to turn right? As in that case, both cars would be crossing the path of the other, and both cars would be distrupting the flow of traffic!. The advice here is for the two right turning veh...

Re: Proposal for new driving test regulations post initial test...

I have no idea whether you are right that periodic eye tests would make a significant difference to road safety. I strongly suspect that the standard test of reading a number plate at 20m is far too simplistic - that level of acuity is less important than field of view and maybe other factors. Obse...

Re: I did a bad thing. How do I improve?

Many years ago I read a research paper on stress recorded by subject business men over a period of time. In all cases the highest and most prolonged periods of stress were documented, not in a crucial meeting or anything else in their business life, but when driving between home and work or meetings...
