Re: Terminally Embarrased

It happens. Good for you in having the courage to post about it here. It reminds me that a few days after my sister's sudden death in her 40's I had a couple of blank moments whilst driving. One was bumping into a lamp post in an empty car park and the other suddenly realising I was driving on a sec...

Re: Been a naughty boy?

Always a dilemma. What to do? No one answer fits all and it will depend on the circumstances of the moment. You're Nissan will not always have the power to out accelerate the car being overtaken as you may already be close to peak acceleration with little or none to spare. (Khaki pants time :o :shoc...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

I know what you mean, however on a powered two wheeler the temptation to close the throttle has the effect of altering the balance onto the front wheel, so loading that tyre more than it would be if the bike is under power. Agreed..slight pause to settle balance prior to crossing paint helps, but n...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

That does not need WOT. A good shove, maybe, but push right through to the floor? Really? And what do you think will happen when people do that on a damp/greasy road surface, or when crossing paint, in a lower gear? If the car has stability/traction control, probably nothing much that many drivers ...

Re: Warning triangles to be replaced..

Is that Spain which currently requires you to carry 2 triangles? I don't think the UK has a legal requirement to carry even 1 - Do we? I like the idea of a warning flasher on the roof as an alternative- but worry that it would be out of battery when needed, and about where it would be stored in the...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

I may be alone here in what I am about to say and it may come as a surprise to those who have endured sitting along side me when I am driving. :shock: I don't get any particular fun or satisfaction form driving over an NSL. It bothers me not whether I do/do not or can/can not drive over an NSL. In f...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

And just to add insult to injury, the IAM have come out in full support of this on Facebook... ... Why am I working as an Observer for you and paying to be a member when you come out with rubbish like this? I share your pain. But I have a way of mitigating the frustration, irritation and exasperati...

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 ...
