    In my experience, the advice about slowing down if being tailgated rarely makes a jot of difference. The driver behind stays just as close but now drives more aggressively and is more likely to try a...

    While you do have some sympathy from me, as illegal, dangerous and/or inconsiderate driving/parking is generally very annoying, the fact that his car was wrongly parked will not have an affect on you...

    Yep, I make sure I never have to fill up at motorway services. Their toilets are handy though.

    Seems like once every couple of generations in the West you need a tyrant, as those who experienced the last one are becoming fewer, and the passage of time has led people to forget about how bad...

    As I don't tend to speed anywhere, I'm not bothered about covert cars.

    If people stopped doing it then there would be no need for this, or for speed cameras, and they wouldn't need to moan about...

    Ludicrous situation. What an idiot, claiming that anyone who drives a lot cannot avoid accumulating 12 points. Funny that, as many people have been driving for decades and never got a single point.

    I can't work out if your post is sarcastic or not, but clearly people should be able to challenge something when it is unjust.

    Nothing (and no one) should be immune from being challenged,...

    I feel sorry for JeffVW for the rather unwarranted and rude welcome; I personally saw no indication of Ken/Dennis in the question as it is a legitimate observation and question - welcome to the...

    Hitting a stationery vehicle makes you 100% at fault, as has already been well explained. Regardless of bad or illegal parking.

    As for insurance vs settling it between yourselves, it is more...

    I passed on my third attempt, which was something like 9.30 or 10 am. The first time was a Saturday mid-morning, which was a nightmare with dithering shoppers and dodgily parked cars on narrow...

    Merely thinking aloud and I have no idea of the real answer, but I wonder if it is down to the "attitude" of the average driver with such a modification, i.e. someone who gets alloy wheels is more...

    As Motman has suggested, the council should be able to stick advance-warning signs indicating that the road is to be cleared by a certain time. This is common and easy to apply for when you are...

    I would weigh up the cost of a new window (after you smash it) versus the cost of an RAC call-out, and pick whatever is cheaper.

    If you end up smashing the window, I would advise informing close...

    What I tend to do when in a city or a complex road layout I don't know is to stick to the left-hand lane unless directed otherwise. So it's rather annoying when your lane becomes a bus lane with...

    I agree with what you're saying about people deliberately flouting the rules and using the bus lane, but I also feel that more warning could be given when a normal lane turns into a bus lane....

    Wow, I certainly never knew that. And given the number of Transit-style vans that tailgate and gesticulate at me when I'm going at the maximum speed limit, I would never have guessed.

    In some countries you do have to declare if you haven't driven for a certain period of time (several years), so I can understand the question, although it's an unknown concept here.

    I've always found this feature a bit odd and vastly exaggerated in terms of danger.

    You can speed or drive dangerously just as easily in a Nissan Micra as you can in a Ferrari. It might take a few...
