    Santa, I have been operating my banking/budget records over many years, and refining them where I find room for improvement, so I think 'impeccable' is now a fair description.
    I used to deduct all...

    That's the one, Santa. There are a few roads that could have been used for giving diversion info, although none, IMO, would be HGV friendly. But it was a single "road closed" sign just after the...

    Hi, Santa. Checked this morning (7th working day) and the available balance has now gone back up to what it should be. But the point I raised remains. If this happened to someone on a tight...

    If it had been someone less than an apparent idiot "attending" the road block I might have obtained some facts. Since it will be about 10 weeks before I travel that route again, when I would expect...

    Voided debit card transactions

    21/10/14 we went for our regular dental check. Paying at reception by debit card, the receptionist, as usual, took my card, placed it in the reader (wireless type), typed in a reference, then handed...

    Ambiguous Road Closed sign.

    Going north out of Burford on the A361, then LEFT onto the A424. Here, there is a "Road Closed" sign, but no diversionary guide. It is not clear if it refers to the Taynton road straight ahead, or...

    Browsing the web about this, I could find no indication that American government cars have compulsory dash cams. But a bit more browsing did raise a website with a question, "How come we Americans...

    As the incident was described, several acts of bad driving appear to be the case:
    (1) The 'luxury' car driver was probably impatient, so passed the Vauxhall on the inside, rather than give that...

    Really pleased to hear that the situation is looking good, coolio. A refreshing change to have a poster report such a positive result.
    best wishes.

    In the past, I have taken the view that these dash cams are extreme, but my feeling about them are rapidly changing.
    Rather than put it on YouTube, if the video clip could identify the lads, passing...

    The possibility of the driver not being aware of the collision, given the rugged nature of a truck in comparison to a car but, in law, that does not absolve the driver, or his company, from...

    If one believes that they have been failed unfairly, I suppose there is a procedure for making a complaint. Having said that, it does leave the question of how one is going to get an unbiased review...

    There may be sufficient evidence of damage to both vehicles, and the driver's records should show the relevant part of his delivery schedule to prove where he was at the time of the incident. If...

    An example of senseless stupidity.

    Driving home this afternoon, with wife as passenger, we were travelling along a road that was a mix of council houses on one side, and commercial premises on the other side. Two lads, ranging about...

    This problem, when it happens, is as old as time itself.
    Many years ago, I was a young teenager, waiting at a bus stop in Newquay, Cornwall (I am born Leicester). An obviously local fellow came and...

    The driver is still responsible at law and should not have driven off without reporting the incident. Contact your insurers and the police and make the complaint official.

    My method of payment is similar, EXCEPT for one detail. For all my on line purchases I have a separate current account specifically used for that purpose. It only carries a small amount of cash,...

    It happens all the time on a regular basis. Whether or not such drivers are aware of the increased danger they are creating is debatable. What is certain, I think, is that they don't care about...

    No? - I think you are very mistaken there, Dennis. Even the large stores have an extra facility for buying on line - to the point where they offer a discount that isn't available to in-store buyers....
  22. Chain store selling items only to preferential customers.

    We were looking on line for a ceramic-finished paella pan and the Debenhams website came up showing one by Sabatier. This being ideal for us, I contacted their customer services to order it. At...

    There are big scams and little scams. When it comes to making money, anything is possible. Frankly, the two Frenchmen did not act or appear 'professional' in any way. To offer a description, I can...

    It claims to be a "Continental market", and the attending public (until now ourselves included) believe that the produce is actually from mainland EU. You would not be happy to buy produce from a...
  25. Continental market in leicester 15/10 - 19/10 2014

    I used to think that the Continentals brought their own produce over with them. Well, on Tuesday, we happened to be in our local Lidl store when two Frenchmen came in and bought a load of plain...
