    For the first one, I also don't see how you couldn't stop as you were not right up his bumper and you were not going very fast. Either you were distracted, or you misjudged how long it takes to stop,...

    I'm also amazed as to how. It is very clear that a private seller has absolutely no responsibility whatsoever for problems with the vehicle that arise after sale, as long as they did not tell any...

    I wouldn't be so quick to say "it was still technically mine" - if it is not "technically yours", then she has zero claim whatsoever for a refund, as it was sold privately and the vehicles does NOT...

    Glad it worked out for you and thanks for being one of the few who starts a thread like this and lets people know the conclusion.
  5. The point (or not) of creating an online car hire account

    I have just booked a car for a week's hire in October as part of a holiday abroad.

    I am not loyal to any particular company; I always compare all the main, "reputable" car hire companies by...

    The worst-case scenario is your premium will increase a bit and you will have to pay an excess (if you have one).

    That's the very worst thing that can happen. Obviously this would be extremely...

    On the general theme, there's a really interesting series "Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?" following people doing real-life training and testing to be astronauts, with the whole thing...

    I had exactly the same thing happen to me when I was also a relatively new driver.

    I would advise you to inform your insurer in writing of everything that happened, send them photos of both cars...

    With the amount of otherwise honest people committing insurance fraud when they're in an accident, I reckon in a few years a dashcam in a car will be as common as a steering wheel.

    Agreed. As long as you didn't lie to him, you have nothing to worry about and he hasn't got a leg to stand on in terms of the law.

    Private sales are exempt from the requirements of "adequate...

    That's nice of them. A change from the ones who say "we'll come at some point between 9 and 5," then they knock while you're in the loo and then leave again and you have to wait a week for the next...

    Funny driving instructor anecdotes

    Thought it would nice to have a lighter topic :-)

    I stumbled across this website run by a driving instructor. One section is devoted to funny stories - most from his own experience with a few...

    Glad you're happy with your instructor. It seems there are some great ones and awful ones and everything in between.

    At least with a manual, once you pass you are then free to choose between...

    Thanks for the explanation, it's really helpful and interesting to see how it works. Apologies if I came across as argumentative, I didn't realise the finer subtleties.

    I only use cruise control on faster roads, and only then with low traffic and no regular changes of speed required. It wouldn't occur to me to use it at anything less than 60 mph or on a busy...

    Thank you for your informative and interesting reply.

    But this is criminal law. Section 25(4) the RTA 1972 and Section 170(4) of the RTA 1988 say "A person who fails to comply [with the section...

    I have always found this sentence of the law very confusing.

    So you must provide details at the scene, but ... OK then, if you don't then not to worry, just do it asap and in any case within 24...

    I'm not really sure what you mean. It was a humorous response to a question about what can be done to make people more aware of the rules of the road. In many professions, you take periodic testing...

    Do not cancel the claim.

    Firstly, financially speaking, you will get an increase in premium but it will not be a 500 increase, so there is no financial sense in dealing with it privately.

    Regardless of fault or damage, virtually all insurance policies will have a clause that says you have to notify them of any incident, or of incidents where a claim is possible/likely to be made, or...

    Because rules change over time and people are not always aware of the changes.

    I'm not advocating this, just a (quite clear I think) tongue-in-cheek reference. I think far more important is a...

    Stop signs where they're not needed

    Local to me, there is a T-junction with good visibility from all sides - it's not a hazardous junction. The smaller road leading up to the T has a stop sign, even though you can see well in advance...
