Re: Another Accident

Same argument going round and round.
WE accept that not every young driver behaves like a complete c**k behind the wheel.
The insurance companies treat them all with the same contempt.

Many drivers never bother with insurance - so rather than covering themselves, it's far easier for insurance companies to fleece the good motorists.
About time the laws were amended so the good motorists weren't paying for the bad.
Link all forecourts to PNC - the second an illegal goes near the forecourt, police instantly notified. Same with anywhere that has public cctv (car parks, high streets etc).

Me? I'd start by fining uninsured motorists 10,000 - and if they don't have the money, take their house or goods to the value.
If they are in council house, evict them - make them homeless.

If young drivers really are such a bad risk, start out by charging them, say 3k for year 1.
If they have behaved during year 1, give them year 2 for 1k.
If they continue to behave, give them year 3 free.
If they continue to do well, extend the free period to years 4 & maybe even and 6. 6 years' motoring for 4k insurance - not bad?
Maybe even apply this same formula to older drivers who insist on driving badly? Let them off 3 points, but 3k premium for 6 points etc etc.

Re: Another Accident

Yesterday had a van marked DVLA with 4 cameras on the roof drive slowly past the house. Presumably checking for untaxed cars, and perhaps uninsured. I agree they could probably find more if they parked on a forecourt.

Re: Another Accident

It's funny how all the effort only goes into the aspects that involve the government taking money off people.

I reckon the roads could be made loads safer by crushing all BMWs (with their owners in). You just know when a beemer's snarly face appears in your mirror it's going to be right up your arse within seconds. That always happens to be when I do my brake test. Or wash the back window.

Do idiots buy beemers, or do they send you on a training course in how to be one when you buy one?

At least they do us the courtesy of warning us about their potential behaviour, by the car they drive. Now we just have to look out for the ones hiding in other vehicles.

As I type into this forum, any misspelled word are wiggly underlined. Could this be my browser? Its supposed to be set at English UK, but as with all software, has a mind of its own - or that of its creator who probably needs to get out more.

Any ideas, is it in this forum, or our browser?

I'm using Firefox. Seems I had to do a similar thing. It'll probably break at next update.

Couple of things. Firstly, nice stereotyping. Not all bmw drivers are cocks, just like not all Audi drivers are. Not all micra drivers are old etc.

Secondly, don't be a dick and break test. If someone is tailgating you, simply pull over and let then past, it's really not that hard.

I have no idea why people dislike being overtaken.
