Re: What does this sign mean?

I think it is to deter people from using it as somewhere to keep the car overnight on a regular basis. It may date back to the days when you needed parking lights ... ooh that dates me ....

I'm not sure that this is a subjective observation, but there does seem to be a lot of egregious speeding going on at the moment.

Re: Tyres fitted to front or rear

A curious thing about Saab 9-5 estates is that no matter how much one tweaks camber etc, the rear tyres always wear on the inside. I reckon I get through twice as many rear tyres as fronts. This has happened with all four 9-5's I've had.

Re: Phone use (again )

And so many people are now using their phones as satnavs. The inbuilt car satnav (and the ridiculous costs of updates) has become a dead-end of technology. I had the ultimate in DWDCA a couple of years ago while being driven by a colleague who was fiddling with both car satnav and mobile phone satna...
