    I hate it when all I can see in the mirror is someone's radiator grill. It is bad and aggressive driving and the only recourse is to slow down. If they don't get the message, then pull over and let...

    Sorry Jeff, but I think that you should stop worrying about other drivers misdemeanours and just concentrate on your own. The idea that you want to start reporting people like this smacks of paranoia...

    I am afraid that your own assessment is correct and with no witnesses and two different accounts of the collision, the insurance company is highly likely to decide it's 50/50. This is why so many...

    You're right, but it's hardly a shock. There has been discussion about diesels for some time now; London is discouraging them and it looks as if Birmingham will too.

    "I was worried about the car behind" is the oldest excuse in the book and the magistrate would give it no credence. If someone is too close behind, slow down gradually until they either overtake you...

    The point is Snowball, and it could happen to you, that you can accumulate points offences without knowing it.

    Sorry Loony... Surely they are still the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). That's what they use on their website.

    If you do end up with a fine and points on your licence, I think that you would be able to look to the dealer for compensation, since it was entirely their fault.

    When you say "a month to go" that is not enough information. Tax expires at the end of the month, so if yours is valid to the end of February, you won't get a refund anyway. If it expires at the end...

    I agree. The only downside is that the council rarely offer a discount like many garages do and you will have to pay the full price of £54.85 for cars. Of course, garages only offer the discount (one...
