    Hope they keep the dinner warm for when you eventually get there!

    I doubt that I'll be caravanning in 2040, Beelzebub, even if I'm still around by then, as I will (would?) be 105!!! Still, the alternative isn't at all tempting so I'll soldier on as long as I...

    Possibly so, but how many go unnoticed because most of us are geared to watching our own actions and those immediately in front of us?

    I've looked at the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV hybrid. Its maximum trailer weight (1,500kg) is only about 60kg above the MTPLM of my caravan, and under towing conditions would almost certainly be...

    There seems to be an element of drivers who insist in acting contrary to any laws passed for their own, and their passengers', safety.
    Is this a British problem, or is it prevalent across Europe? ...

    Looking through this thread, I am finding that poster 'Beverley' seems to have disappeared.
  7. If the lorries and buses are not affected, then...

    If the lorries and buses are not affected, then why should cars be singled out. You only have to watch from bridges on peak hours to see how the M/ways are full of lorries. Add to that the lorries...

    Governments frequently have pipe dreams over the years, usually due to urges from extremist groups. I recall a time when it was claimed that nuclear power would be so cheap the it would be a waste...

    I remember years ago, taking my car for its MoT with a sense of foreboding and the sigh of relief when it had passed. Is this a psychological thing, as we do want our cars to be safe and reliable,...

    We don't need to take any action to change doctors. When we go on line to order our repeat prescriptions, a look in the menu for booking a doctor's appointment usually shows a list of doctors we've...

    Ah, but there's a psychological difference between a calculated risk and a definite loss of cash by not acting in time.

    Never mind child car seats, in our area we regularly see a certain type of people who allow their youngsters to stand in the centre of the car, behind the front seats.

    The ban will be on new cars, and that includes hybrids - and that, of course, is if the government does not have a rethink. Even this does not satisfy the Green Party, whose spokeswoman (forget her...

    No matter how much effort is put into 'reminders', there will always be a percentage of owners who don't get their priorities right. In the case of new cars, if things were arranged so that a cash...

    I have no personal reason to be interested in this law, so it wouldn't necessarily have sunk in even if I did see anything in the media. But there are many drivers with kids who probably don't watch...

    He may have issues needing treatment for all we know, but how many times in the past have we heard of leniency in these cases, only to discover that at a later date such a person has eventually badly...

    Yes, on my car it is on the R/H stalk on the steering column. But it only steps through the standard menus that are available, and 'bulb failure' is not in the menu. The 'failure' icon is displayed...

    Having read the article, I find it disgraceful, and shameful, that the police did not prosecute. I can't help but feel that, if it had been an incident between persons of different races, then the...

    Some years ago I was having a little back trouble which, without me realising it, was causing me to put all my weight on my right leg to ease pain which was happening in my left leg. After a few...

    In circumstances like that, I'm afraid I don't think much of that doctor's attitude. The information he gave is directly related to your medical condition - it isn't as if he was giving you a...

    That makes sense to me, particularly where the "fault" can affect safety and/or trouble with the law. e.g., a friend of ours in France got an on-the-spot fine when he was stopped because one of his...

    As opposed to not being cautious enough, it is hard to guess where just being cautious ends, and being over cautious begins.

    A provider of a service does not have to make much of a slip up to blot an otherwise good copy book. How many customers bother to commend good service compared to those who have a cause to gripe? I...
