    Whether the signs are compliant, whether it's H & S, etc are probably all irrelevant. If it's a private car park, the owners are free to ban whoever they like, provided they don't discriminate on...

    Hi nuckel500

    Your description is less than clear; in particular "my lane" and "his lane" are not helpful descriptions.

    Were there one or two lanes going in your direction?

    Snowball

    It's perfectly fair of Smudger to accuse the OP of excessive speed. Since he/she failed to stop in time then he was undoubtedly going too fast for the conditions.

    What speed? - Too fast to stop safely.

    What was the lorry doing? - What difference would it make?

    From your description, you hit a stationary vehicle.

    I'd say you were 100% to blame since you didn't drive "at a speed that will allow you to stop well within the distance you can see to be clear".

    Most convertibles do NOT have only two seats.

    According to What Car, there are 120 current models with 4/5 seats, and only 44 with 2.

    Converting a normal car into a convertible invariably means reducing either the passenger space or the boot, or both, to accommodate the folded hood.

    Smudger

    At present, a ban starts from the date the court imposes it. This means that if someone is convicted, banned for a year, and jailed for three years, then his ban is finished before he's...

    Hi Dennis

    Possibly so, but (fortunately) the law is still determined by acts of parliament rather than your personal preferences.

    Santa is right.

    The Marriage Act 1949 defined an infant as a person under the age of 21. This was changed to 18 by the Family Law Reform Act 1969.

    Having the money up front is not irrelevant. Although the government may not spend it, they can invest it and it's secure.

    To begin with, it sounds as if the other driver had to slow down to let you out. If so, you were in the wrong, although that doesn't excuse his aggressive behaviour.

    As regards his overtaking, you...

    Dennis

    How do you suggest anyone should go about getting a registration number for a trailer in the UK?

    AFAIK it's not possible, but I may be wrong.

    Dennis is right (!).

    The British Isles includes the whole island of Ireland. It is geographical term, not a political one.
