Re: Declining Standards

Has anyone else noticed a sharp decline in the standard of driving/riding over the last few months? I've assumed lack of practice is the main reason. And being used to empty roads? We had a VE day street party (actually individual 'picnics' in front gardens). I was, by then, so used to the lack of ...

Re: Road works speed limits

I doubt we'll see the 60mph limits very often, every set of works requires a site specific risk assessment and as said earlier, the works situation will need to allow for a higher speed limit. Where lanes are narrowed, for example, they may not increase it or where there is any risk to the people w...

Re: Declining Standards

Yes, it was becoming obvious when lockdown started to ease.

I'm not driving at the moment, but had noticed that I had to concentrate on self-talk to work on getting back to how I feel I should be.

Re: Older cars become more attractive by the day

The guarantees offered are getting longer as well, perhaps they need to? I wondered, years ago, about the march of technology when I heard about a car (BMW 7?) that had motors to pull the wipers against the screen at high speed. And I wonder about anyone trying, in years to come, to restore a moder...

Re: A few more videos

That's a shame. Although given the lack of bigger tourers on the market now, perhaps there just isn't demand for them?

Re: Any group back to observing in cars?

“The most important thing is the social distancing and washing your hands,” To answer your question - Reduce likelihood or possibility? Define substantially? From what level, to what level? You choose. Nope, I don't have to because I won't be observing. Also, I'm not qualified to make those sorts o...
