    I tend to agree with Santa,but if the OP told us the WHOLE story then he might get better advice.

    If I understand you correctly, the insurance company have used information from your Facebook account. Was that information supposed to be restricted?

    If not, you have no complaint.

    Snowball is probably right, blue lights on a lorry. I don't believe it's illegal.

    AFAIK there are no speed cameras with a blue flash.

    Hi Dennis

    You're right, but I'd already pointed that out on the 9th December.

    Do keep up!

    Who's at fault - well it isn't the building, so that only leaves you. The car was left in an insecure position. It may have seemed ok, but it obviously wasn't.

    First thing you need to do is inform...

    I don't have either the time or inclination to read the whole thread, but it started by asking whether the arrow markings are mandatory. They aren't.

    However, disregarding them (as we see in the...

    Santa is right. The number of lanes is irrelevant.

    Is it in fact a single carriageway, or is there a central reservation?

    There are many car parks with a barrier which opens when you take a ticket. I'd expect a court to regard them as a public place, since anyone can enter.

    So far as the last driver is concerned, you were reversing into him, and so his claim is against you, and your insurer must pay. Why you were reversing is not his concern.

    If you were reversing...

    Thank you dacouch.

    You will note that parliament, in its wisdom, added the words "or other public place" only to section 145(3(a)). If it had intended it to apply to the whole act it could easily...

    Only parts of the Road Traffic Act apply in car parks, if they are "accessible to the public", e.g. you must have insurance.

    A NIP is only required for certain offences, failure to report is not one of them. See Schedule 1 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.

    You do NOT simply have 24 hours. You must report an accident "at a police station or to a constable ... as soon as is reasonably practicable and, in any case, within twenty-four hours".

    Santa is right.

    Traffic light cameras only operate when the lights are red, and have been for some time (about 1 second).

    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".
