    This happened "on the weekend".

    Most people would have been on the phone to the dealer first thing on Monday, and then if necessary to to a lawyer, Trading Standards etc.

    Your post #18 referred to "... those new zones at traffic lights for bicycles to stop in, They are new since the HC was last amended."

    How old is your copy of the HC?

    In the current (2007) edition, advanced stop lines are covered in rules 61, 71 and 178.

    The law says that "a constable may require a person to co-operate with any one or more preliminary tests". There is no requirement to ask for your permission.

    It also says that "A person commits...

    They can require you to undergo a test (breath, impairment or drug)

    - If a constable reasonably suspects that you have alcohol or drugs in your body (no need to smell it)

    The driver on the main road had pulled out to pass a parked car, and was (by the OP's own account) travelling slowly. He was therefore doing nothing...

    "His word against mine" is a perfectly common scenario, which ultimately is what we have courts for. If it went to court, then the judge or jury would make a decision based on their view of the...

    If the OP really was 75 metres from the bend, in a 30 limit, then that seems a safe location.

    However, he says "I had driven forward and was reaching for reverse gear when a car comes round a...

    In the RAC's defence, 0800 numbers were introduced so that members could call free, back in the days when most calls were from landlines.

    There is (as far as I know) no way of offering free calls...

    Did you photograph your own car? If not do it ASAP.

    I'd call your insurer and tell them that you've been falsely accused, and that you have pictures.

    What you're quoting isn't a regulation, but simply guidance for the examiners.
