    The masses in India are mostly poor still. They have a vast population and much of it is illiterate. My father spent time in Calcutta after independence and spent a huge amount of time negotiating...

    Wow Snowball, a lot of debating points there.

    I agree - Speed limits are a matter for individual governments, even within the EU.

    Frankly, I have no idea. It's not so simple for a member of the public to trace someone by their registration number. You can pay 2.50, and use the V888 form on the DVLA website, but you have to say...

    You would expect a cheque for the car minus scrappage when the car is written off but the insured keeps the wreck. I can only assume that in some way your 'friend' has convinced the insurance company...

    As best as I can judge from your picture, I think that I would pull forward, but leave a gap for any traffic from the right to get in. Unless you are actually there, it is hard to decide, but with no...

    I will be sorry to see you go Smudger. Surely you can just pop back from time to time - just to let us know how you are getting on.
