    Smudger is right, the aerosol "solution" is of very limited use.

    With a space-saver wheel, there is a 50 m.p.h. limit. This is a legal requirement, not "advisory".

    The best answer is to get a...

    I'm afraid it seems to be mainly your fault. You were turning right across lanes of traffic who had priority, and failed to anticipate the cyclist.

    He was "undertaking" (correct term = overtaking...

    How can the ombudsman help? The insurers haven't done anything wrong.

    With no independent witnesses, and no doubt two different versions of events, can the insurers realistically do anything else but 50/50?

    First you said the common people were excluded, but then that you were still driving in the inside lane.

    Are you not one of the common people? Or are you secretly a VIP slumming it on...

    As Santa has said, the insurers will almost certainly treat it as 50/50.

    However, it seems from your account that you checked your mirror (just one?) before reversing and then relied on your...

    Apologies if this is duplicated - my first attempt seems to have disappeared into the depths of this VERY unreliable forum.

    It cannot be safer if your excessive caution leads other drivers to overtake you in frustration. Simply overtake the bus, at a speed which would allow you to stop if necessary. The same speed at...

    Dennis

    It is perfectly legal to overtake a bus which is stationary at a bus stop, even within zig-zag lines.

    The only offence is overtaking the moving vehicle nearest the crossing, or a vehicle...

    Most (but not all) areas in E & W now belong to the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS). This means that you can do a course locally, even if the offence took place elsewhere. I guess...

    I agree totally about telling Admiral to shove it.

    However, they're quite entitled to ask, and if you want to renew you're obliged to answer.

    And BTW taking a course doesn't "satisfy the...

    When the lights change to amber, you need to decide whether you can - with normal braking - stop at the line.

    It's easier and safer to think about that BEFORE the lights change. In other words, on...

    I agree with Santa about a trial lesson. You don't need to tell the instructor it's a trial!
