    I remember from some time ago, that the banks were trying to move payments away from the first of the month. Most people get paid at the end of the month, so it makes sense for them to have all the...

    You wouldn't think so Dennis, but the police take a different view. It is their view that some members of the public do not always tell the truth and might say that they were just checking the time...

    As I say above - there is no need to get involved in all these complications. If the car is legal in Sweden, it is legal here for six months. That is ample time to sort out a permanent importation if...

    Is that still working? - I use the computer and listen to Radio 2. In both cases I find the information of limited use as it's often out of date.

    I suppose that we all have our own system. I use a credit card for nearly all purchases and pay it in full at the end of the month. This keeps my bank statement pretty short. I also put money aside...

    I wouldn't say 'flawed'. Skewed maybe, because it is quite deliberate and they would say that it's for our own protection. And I do my best, but 'impeccable' is not the word I would use:)

    It has also happened to me, but on a CC not a debit card. I check my account frequently and would pay particular attention to look for the transaction. What I saw was that there was only one debit,...

    Sweden is in the EU so it is pretty simple. If you and the car are legal there, you are legal here for six months

    Two questions here -

    First - To get answers about the likely cause of the problem you need to tell us the make/model/fuel/year/cc of the car.

    The legal point is a matter of opinion. It depends...

    In England you will get 9 points and 300 in fines as a fixed penalty. Each will be a separate offence and with luck, you may get an offer of a Speed Awareness Course, so long as your speed was not...

    That report dates from sometime in 2001/02 I think. It's highly irresponsible of that website to give misleading information which could result in some gullible motorist being prosecuted. The...

    I would love to see any evidence of that. If you get 'flashed' while speeding, a letter is sent to the registered keeper, asking them who was driving at the time. The RK should send that letter back,...

    It is a convertible Mini Cooper with an auto gearbox. Personally I think that this is a car for an enthusiast, not a student. It will cost a fortune to insure for starters.

    I too would say that cutting across marked spaces, especially at such a speed, must indicate that the delivery lady was to blame.
