    A few weeks ago I was in my sister's car. She was driving, I was the front-seat passenger.

    We were stopped at a T-junction the top of a steep hill. A van was in front of us. When the...

    Probably some smallprint somewhere. If you've used Confused to scan for quotes, perhaps they kept your details even if they said they wouldn't. The legality may be shady but I don't know if there's...
  4. Can blameless parties in RTCs can still sometimes avoid the accident?

    Hi all,

    I haven't been on this forum in years as my circumstances changed and I forgot all about it. I hope everyone is well.

    Yesterday, after 8 years of driving, I had my first collision and...

    Looks like the simplest and most blatant non-fault accident on your behalf that I have ever seen on here. It's just a formality that the other driver's insurer is taking her side. There really is no...

    Unfortunately, if the instructor is required to use the controls him/herself, e.g. pull on the steering wheel or put his foot on the dual-control brake, you fail automatically, even if the cause was...

    Hard to really work out what was going on from the description, but definitely go through insurance if he is asking for 700. There is a possibility he is ripping you off; also if you claim and are...

    Yes, as Wagolynn has hinted with your quote - rather than something I would say to the insurer, one thing you must NOT say is "he came out of nowehere". That automatically implies negligence on your...

    If that's the case, indeed it's not your fault, but what they don't tell you when learning to drive is just because a light is green, you don't have to move off within 0.0000000000000000000000001...

    I would like to see staff disciplined whenever they give details to sham car parking companies who have no power to issue fines, who scare motorists into thinking they have to pay up when the "fine"...

    Poll: AskMID and the police vs data protection

    There have been regular stories on here about drivers being involved in incidents, hit-and-runs, cars scratched with no note left, etc. But when you do your civic duty by getting the registration...

    Unbelievable how many drivers actually blame their satnavs rather than themselves for going wrong.

    The National Trust one I think is completely irrelevant to being able to drive safely, though I got that as it is quite recognisable.
