Re: Telematics - feedback and findings

“What young people need is more help in understanding where it is inappropriate to driven near the limit.” That bit I agree with but a black box is not going to help that.

Re: 20 mph limits - safer?

Interesting that council justify the spend as" we are spending for improved safety" then when its not working and it has been proven to be more dangerous they can not find the money to spend for Safety now? So are these blanket 20 limits about safety or is there some hidden agenda? Would a...

Re: Call to fit automated speed limiting technology to cars

So what do you do for the bozo who thinks the speed limit is the safe speed and runs wide on a left hand bend killing several people coming the other way.

Re: Masters assessment

+1 Plus, he said that there was no point whatsoever in developing observation. All he needed to look at was the distance he could stop in at his speed. so travelling at 30mph, he only needed to know what was happening 75 feet away.

Re: 'Advanced' - a solicitor writes

Hi Off topic but did you see the Guy Martin program on autonomous vehicles? one short clip was on no win situations, someone will die the decision is who. So at least someone now recognises that even the proposed super safe vehicles may end up having to decide if they kill their occupants or someone...

Re: Masters assessment

When I give spoken commentary I always slow down from my normal pace, usually as I am giving it for the benefit of an associate and I want them to have a chance to see what I am looking at and not put them at risk by diverting their concentration. Sometimes I give commentary from a following positio...

Re: "High risk" roads

Perhaps the solution would be to ban all :biker: from using the C&F road? :nono: We used to use this road a lot with associates at one time but so many cars were crossing the centre line on bends that we took a conscious decision to avoid it. As for the speed limit, yes you can average 50 mph o...

Re: "High risk" roads

Dont particularly like the C&F too may vehicles exceeding the competence of the user. Many think its a badge of honor to have traveled along it. There are some bits that can catch out anyone not actually paying attention, especially if they are already exceeding their ability to read the road an...

Someone pulled out in front of me in a big Hyundai this morning. Spinning up the inner front wheel which then resulted in the TRC cutting the power dramatically and leaving himt stranded in the middle of the road. No drama for me, I had anticipated his emergence and was slowing anyway but the look o...
