Re: Control Pal

I have been driving a Porsche with a g display like this available in the dash. As already mentioned when in a high g situation the last place you want to be looking is at the dash. However, it records the max in each direction since reset, and I think you can download history to look at in more det...

Re: Potential downside of speed enforcement?

Many or even most Associates have some trouble obeying all speed limits. In my experience it is generally a failure of planning rather than execution - they forget they are in a 30, or that they must try to get to that speed by the limit sign. It is not difficult to get it roughly right if they reme...

Re: The joys of driving in Sussex!! Webcam footage

I fail to see how it can be incriminating unless it can be proven who was driving - so screw up and crash, yes it could be used against you- but otherwise it would be tricky to look at older footage and prosecute... So in the event of an accident swallow the card! Alasdair I hope I would be honest ...

Re: The joys of driving in Sussex!! Webcam footage

Seems I'm in the same boat as you, Mark. The dashcam was not my idea but the wife's. . Mine was a present-from my son who had been given it and didn't want it. A while ago I narrowly avoided a bad crash (when someone was coming towards me on my side of the road). At the time the dashcam was in the ...

Re: The joys of driving in Sussex!! Webcam footage

Interesting that they obtained and used her dashcam footage to prosecute her. I worry about whether I am liable to get myself into trouble by using a dashcam.

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. Thanks Jont. I have a d...

Re: M1 Minibus "Accident"

To be distracted as part of the normal course of living is one thing, but to go out of your way to be deliberately and knowingly distracted on the road is quite something else. I do that every time I drive, whether by talking to a passenger, listening to the radio, operating the controls of the car...

Re: M1 Minibus "Accident"

The commentary comparison is interesting. Many IAM Associates initially find it difficult and attempting it often reduces the quality of the drive. However, at IAM Masters level a relevant, informative and fairly fluent commentary is required alongside an impressive drive. There are a lot of success...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

Living in commuter land, it is often the wives of our prosperous commuter friends who choose and buy the expensive cars. If my wife was the lead car purchaser in our family (she isnt) she would be much more sparing on the options than I am. She would certainly do her best to get a goid deal.

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

It's not that I don't like car salesmen, I like them a lot, I enjoy negotiating with them, it's just that I always want to come away with a deal thinking that notwithstanding all the devious sales training techniques that they have tried to employ in my direction, I got what I wanted, at a price I ...
