Re: And another off.

Or where the 'plenty of room' was when there wasn't sufficient space for her to go between you and the car in front.

Re: And another off.

Did they explain why it's ok for her to move into her blind spot without checking it, when she had just overtaken?

Re: Rugger World Cup Fri 20th ITV

Work got right in the way of me watching Wales in the RWC and yesterday was the third Wales match I missed and I'm working next Sunday as well so I'll miss the final but hope that England stuff the lumpy and boring Boks. The World Cup Final is on Saturday morning at 9am GMT, I'm not sure why it's S...

Re: It's not rocket science

Helium does manage to escape, once it gets in the atmosphere it eventually will zoom off into space, gravity from the earth continues to act on it, but not enough to ever bring it back. Other molecules at the top of the atmosphere will head off into space but will come back as they aren't traveling ...

Re: Rugger World Cup Fri 20th ITV

Some people watch soaps, almost every night of the week, some watch more than one, the plot lines have been dreamt up by writers. Often the plot lines are in magazines before they have been on TV. 'Live' Sport, no-one knows what is going to happen, no-one would have thought Leicester City would win ...

Re: Advice on a hit and run accident.

The MIB should also be able to identify the insurer of the vehicle if there was one, I think here is where you need to go https://www.mib.org.uk/check-insurance-details/check-a-vehicle-not-at-the-roadside-after-an-accident/ It costs £4.50 though, but if you have all the proof you need on video the i...

Re: Bikes and air pockets (General not technical)

If you can, maybe watch this https://www.channel4.com/programmes/speed-with-guy-martin Episode one he cycles behind a truck if I remember correctly, I think there's a bit on aerodynamics. I would scroll through to find the relevant section but would have to watch adverts first and more if it's after...

Re: Road Safety Outside Schools

Go to the local paper suggesting that the school are threatening to hold you liable for any injury that may occur if you approach the school to challenge them on their own bad parking outside of the school putting their pupils at risk. That letter is terrible. Does it even address the issue that the...

Re: One solution to tailgating?

I always think learning the stopping distances at various speeds for the driving theory test is rather pointless, what you need to know is what physical distance that is in the real world. There's no point knowing a number of metres if you have no idea how far that actually is along the road to the ...

Re: Bike frame price increase after order placed and paid for legal?

There is a cycle company somewhere whose boxes have a picture of a flatscreen tv, even though it contains a bike, people are more careful with them and they suffer less damage in transit.

Re: Intentionally struck by vehicle - what recourse?

Maybe try reporting it as an assault, as it wasn't an accident, was there any damage to the bike? Maybe report it to the bike scheme so they can check it and claim damages if there are any.

Re: What's the legal position?

Suppose a cycle commute takes 60 minutes a day, the same journey by car is 30 minutes a day. In order to get the same exercise within the same time frame one would have to work twice as hard exercising at home or running from home, for the 30 minutes they've saved off their journey, unless the gym i...

Re: What's the legal position?

Those repair costs are surely more than the 4 year old bike was worth though, it depends how bothered they are about arguing about it, but they could just make an offer for a similar replacement off ebay. It's up to them though it's not huge figures so they may just pay you the repair quote, or even...
