Re: Rule of Thirds - Overtaking

Yes as I mentioned in first post.

It is related to progressive driving. Dividing the road ahead between bends into thirds.
I teach this all the time.
It is another HPC John Lyon era technique.

Re: Driving More Renaults

Oh no not that roundabout at the top of Whiteladies road. Then straight on at Blackboy hill into Westbury road I could never get across it without some t**t entering too fast aiming for the trailer.

Re: Driving More Renaults

I will not say that the guys (truckers) have it easy else it will start a war of blue badge holders.

I was a bit rubbish using 4 over 4 with a dropper and a splitter making 16 gears.

The modern trucks are very expensive and very posh.

I could not brake and change overlap so hard work.

Re: Speed Awareness Course and BRAKE

It still seems to vary with Insurance Companies.

My Sis -in-law asked her company, they were not interested so [against my advice] she took the points.

Re: Apple reducing driver distractions

My Previous Windows phone and Renno megane played a message. 'The person you are calling is driving hold on'. Then I had a choice if I saw it on hands free.
