    I understand what you mean, Dennis, but the written rules in the Code still apply until such time that they are amended, or appended by statute.

    So, M-ways aside, do we ignore the H.C. rules of subsection 163, as detailed in the gov.co.uk website? If this is the case, what other H.C. rules are there to be ignored? In the incident I...

    Well, it certainly does not make logical sense. All that seems secondary to the government wanting to push car owners into what they (the government) see as preferred vehicles.

    Dennis, I have just referred to the Highway Code on the www.gov.uk website. Looking at the section - Using the road (159-203)

    The g/km emission has nothing to do with the setting of VED. I have a VW Touran 1.9 TDI 105 PS, and our son has a VW Passat 2.0 TDI 140 PS. This year, my VED was 170 whilst his was 30.

    This is because those in the nearside lane are content with their speed, and not bunching up in preparation to overtake as soon as possible.

    No, Dennis, it isn't safe. You cannot be sure that the...

    First, the A30 is not a motorway, and such weaving between other traffic simply to drive faster than the general flow is dangerous.

    The problem is that some drivers will act so abominably that a degree of control (which means a financial deterrent) is really necessary. The difficulty is in setting a figure that is fair as well...

    On one occasion this happened to me. Having no idea what this 'token' meant, I simply clicked off the site. A couple of days later, no reported expiry and I continued to subscribe as normal. Weird!
