    Cancelling N.T. membership.

    We have been Nat. Trust members for many years, and many of those as senior (discounted) members. We have 'done to death' the N.T. houses and gardens in the places we have visited regularly - and...

    It has already been established that there is no priority in law, but that does not mean that duty of care and common sense are excluded. It is a bit worrying that some drivers seem to actually need...

    I once gave a lift to a fellow thumbing a ride, and he was carrying trade plates. During the part of the journey that he shared with me, he confided that he had given a tip to the proprietor where...

    When driving alone, I usually flip my car radio on (at low volume), and as background 'noise' it is easily ignored as and when necessary. It is also set for classical music - not the raucous booming...

    I don't think insurers are so wooden-headed as to dismiss a sole responsibility result if a dashcam really did show careless driving by the vehicle in front unsafely cutting-in. Let's face it - once...

    When a light-controlled traffic island near to us was 'upgraded', on at least one entry which I use there are three vehicle lanes. Between lanes 1 and 2 there is a...

    When the M1 first opened (no upper speed limit then) we were passed by a red Daimler sports car that literally went by in a blur.

    Where they have got the lane marking correct, there should be no difficulty and, as Beelzebub says, it is those who don't use it correctly who cause a problem.
    But there is one such roundabout in...

    If the slip road is definitely a single lane one, then that driver was guilty of careless driving. If the slip road as a double lane one (similar to those seen on M-ways) then the action might not...

    Only a few weeks ago I parked my car in a wide residential road where I could continue into town by bus. It isn't a major through route, but is reasonably well used and is a bus route. I noticed a...

    I can see both sides of the argument, but to me the crux of the matter is "you never sacrifice safety for position". A relatively novice driver might be too slow to react to the sudden appearance of...

    John, assuming you live in a Cornish rural location, perhaps you may be able to confirm, or not, what I was once told. Whilst we were on holiday in Cornwall I got chatting to a local and the subject...

    I have only been in a courtroom once in my life, and that was because our son (still a minor) had skipped a red light on his moped. His was the last case to be heard, and all the others at the...

    The V5 document, and going abroad.

    In the procedure for going abroad by car for a holiday, we are told that we must carry the ORIGINAL V5 form, and not a photocopy. Taking account of the problems associated with any theft that...
