    Now why doesn't that surprise me? We are on a campsite in France, and a great number of the visitors are Dutch. They all speak good English and are generally extremely sociable - much more so than...

    The only possible claim would, in my opinion, be one of whiplash. BUT, with no damage occurring to either vehicle, this injury would seem to be virtually impossible to sustain.

    Changing one's email password.

    My email is via Windows Live. It does recommend regularly changing the password, but when I try to do this it puts me through a procedure to check that I am who I claim to be, then tells me to enter...

    NickDNA, unless your photos following the incident are very informative, as your verbal description of the incident is so difficult to follow, the 50/50 decision by the insurers seems fair. Also,...

    It should not be possible for any vehicle front lights to illuminate without the rear lights also operating.
    Daylight Running Lights are there for the purpose of being seen, so the need to be...

    Beelzebub's observations are right. As I understand the situation, to pass the cars waiting to turn right, you pulled out at least partly into the oncoming carriageway. With the appropriate...

    I had the same problem with a 1967 Ford Cortina Mk2 - it was only about 18 months old at the time. I came out of work one evening - it had been raining heavily for most of the day - and the front...

    No, Dennis. The AEI lamps factory was on the outskirts of Leicester - on the A607 Melton road - gone now, of course, and is a massive Sainsbury's store.

    Funny, Dennis, that Coton House should sound familiar to me. Looking it up on Wikipedia, it says it was used as a hostel for apprentices and students employed at the BTH, Rugby factory. I was a BTH...

    Shocked, FJ? Not as shocked as I was that some moron was quite happy to urge me into a collision with fast traffic - it's a 60mph road - shock which rapidly turned to the gesture I gave him. That...

    It happened to me only about a week ago. I was waiting to turn left, towards Leicester, onto the main Coventry-to-Leicester road. There were several vehicles coming from my right, and too close to...

    This should be done reservedly because, if you are mistaken in thinking that another road...

    Too true!
    The horn is provided mainly for use in an emergency, such as to prevent an accident if a pedestrian suddenly steps off the pavement without looking. When a driver sounds his/her horn it...

    I think it is necessary to be very cautious about sounding your horn to warn another driver of your intention to pass on the inside. It may startle him or her into assuming some action is needed,...

    I vaguely remember getting something like that myself - next time on site it never happened so don't know what caused it.
    I'd go onto the General Questions section and ask Mike Gray (moderator) if...

    This is a new paragraph. At the end of a line, just hit the <enter> key to drop down one space.

    Hope this helps.

    Had a look on your website, max_gain. You've certainly put in some work to get your point across - successful outcome well deserved.
