Re: A Very Good Read

“wholesale rollout of this technology without infrastructure or maturity is reckless.”

Exactly. And IMHO early roll-out could lead to some very nasty incidents, followed by some very tortuous legal arguments.

Sic Transit Gloria

Over the Easter Weekend we hired a nice big Transit to take a shed-load of stuff up to Peterbuggah for the Antiques Fair. It makes a change from Saabing about but a couple of little thoughts: a) Even with the big fat wing mirrors you get on a Tranny nowadays there is always some daft Herbert who wan...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

I suspect that this system will first appear in all-electric (or possibly hybrid) cars where the electronics can be neatly integrated with the drive management systems and it will be "go" and "regenerative braking"

Re: Hello all

As I wrote somewhere up this thread I have a great deal of sympathy for the OP. My initial failure was due to a lack of understanding (and/or) explanation about what the IAM's aims and objectives were, and the meaning behind some of the reserved words and phraseology that we tend to take for granted...

Re: Hello all

This morning we had a group drive-out, one hour each round the highways and byways of Oxfordshire. It was pleasant just to be out, enjoy the sunshine, and just do a bit of driving for the fun of it. Sometimes it's nice just to think about (and enjoy) the activity of driving, without worrying about s...

Re: Hello all

:gear: Oh, and don't get hung up about people who look down on automatics. My regular day-to-day barge is an automatic. So what? It's one less thing to worry about. I've got sport mode, which frankly doesn't make a lot of difference, and some flappy things which I rarely use ...

Re: Hello all

Now to make you feel a bit better. The first time I did the IAM test I scraped a fail. One of the reasons was (being a person of some age) I failed to understand the word "progress". It is not something that came up in the mists of time when I first learned to drive and as far as I was con...
