Re: Highway Code Review for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders

...I don't apologies for my rant. I'm passionate about driving and hate seeing other motorists behaving in such selfish ways which reflects on the rest of us. No it's not a 'rant' John - I think many here believe the same as you. Accelerating through a long amber traffic light 'to beat the red', ta...

Re: Road works speed limits

...I'm not on about the roadworks, I'm on about the rest of our roads network where limits are falling unnecessarily by the day. If /some/ roadworks can be increased, that suggests to me all the other places 50s have gone in should be reviewed too, particularly as many won't even have followed the ...

Re: A few more videos

Good stuff Mike. Just a question about G when stopping on a motorbike. In a car we'll often leave the gears alone and stop in the gear we are in, then select 1st . On a motorbike (we'll at least some like my old Kawasaki Z650) if you are stopped in 3rd/4th/whatever, you can't then select 1st - so ar...

Re: DVSA Tests and Lessons to Resume

...I think you've summed this up precisely, Gareth. How can RoADA or IAM even be considering in car training yet. Our regional IAMRS guy has said the IAM won't issue guidance until sometime after the DVSA...he was talking about 3/4 weeks after. Of course it's still down the individuals concerned if...

Re: DVSA Tests and Lessons to Resume

Yes and I do the police's 'Safe and Considerate Driving' course for the public involved in a crash where it's their fault. I have a course booked on 23rd July - it's be interesting to see what recommendations they come up with. I also do Royal Mail van driver training - the last one I did was in Mar...

Re: Reg Local and speed...

Crickey - I never expected the original post (OP) to generate such a discussion. Well said Alasdair :D !
