    I hope all the motorhome drivers heading for the Highlands take careful note of that.

    He wants to "Find a suitable car with MOT valid until NOV 2018 minimum", so it would appear not.

    More bad advice - there's a six month limit for temporary imports.

    That is appalling advice.

    There is a well established appeals procedure for private parking companies. If you ignore that, then the first question from the judge is likely to be "Why?"

    1. MOT is valid for 12 months maximum, so Nov 18 is not possible

    2. No problem.

    3. Don't know, but we have an insurance expert (dacouch) on the forum.

    Two thoughts on Dennis's latest drivel:

    First, the Islands are one of the few places in Britain with no low bridges, due to the complete absence of railways.

    Second, a Winnebago - probably the...

    The use of an ID card for travel is a red herring. We will have left the EU long before a card could be introduced. Unless of course the government see sense.

    You're probably right, but her intellectual depth is unlikely to be a major consideration for an 18-y-o boy on the pull.

    Indeed. Mortgage payments were "cheaper", but only because house prices were so much lower!

    Actual mortgage rates are lower now than they have been for decades. I remember moving house in the 80s...

    An excellent article. I can vouch for its accuracy from my recent experience in helping a close relative to fight and win a medical negligence claim.

    Judfing by his comments, the cyclist probably failed the attitude test.

    Since the offence only applies in a few areas (I only know about the Royal Parks, but there may be others) there are very few cases.

    In Richmond Park, most motorists stick to the 20 limit pretty...

    Speeding - very few, since speed limits on public roads only apply to motor vehicles. Some have been successfully prosecuted locally here in Richmond Park which is subject to Royal Park legislation...

    AFAIK there is nothing in the law to stop you sounding your horn, unless you're stationary, or it's between 2330 and 0700.

    I'd ignore the police 'advice' and use my judgement.

    Why would the court award compensation? This is what the OP pays his insurance company for, and that's entirely a civil matter, nothing to do with the criminal courts.

    I think you've answered your own question. The only thing "comparison" sites compare is price: if you don't want to compete in that race to the bottom then there is no point in being there.

    But you don't need to make a call, just to "use" the phone. The law doesn't define "use", and there's no case law, but almost everyone would agree that reading or writing texts, surfing the internet,...

    Interesting question. The offence is using a hand-held mobile phone.

    So (1) are you using it? - Yes.

    and (2) is it hand-held? Well, the law defines hand-held as "if it is, or must be, held at...

    Do you have any evidence that they "are now being firmly enforced"?

    Its unlikely that many (if any) speeders caught after 24 April will yet have appeared in court.
