hey guys and girls just sin the funniest thing walked out the pub to get in my car and saw a civic racing towards a near by round about then i looked over and saw a couple of coppers sat in a t5. the lad comes baroling round the round about notices the cop car and braked, his back end swung out and he went skidding side ways and slamed into the cop car. they all got out the vehicles (no injurys) and the lad colapses and starts crying and saying sorry. now i may of had simpathy for him if he wasnt speeding because i know that round about is a bit slidy if you push it.

There's been a bloke round our way in a 3 series BM driving mad and later saw the side of the BM burried into a roundabout lamp post. PMSL as I went passed :D

I was overtaken by a brand new Audi last week... i was doing 80 :)o) and he flew past so he must have been doing at LEAST a ton...

saw him in a ditch a few miles down the road, i did stop and see if he was ok, he was sooooo annoyed cause he'd only just bought the car and wasn't even insured :eek:

too right, I'm a firm believer that before being allowed to go on the road, we should all have to crash or at least spin a car(former would be nicer :rolleyes: ) on some kind of a track, a private track with loads of grassy areas to spin off into, and it should have normal width road markings and roundabouts and all sorts.

Point is most people don't know what to do when there wheels come out of align, and I'd say a good 95% just jump on the breaks and freeze.

I say as part of the test we should be shown how to 'control' a slide, or safely get around a really greasy roundabout at speed etc, and also do a lap of a course, and if you can't ge around it in a certain time without straying into the oncoming lane (or thejr other way) or without making the examinar :cry: then they shouldn't be allowed on the road.


Anyway talking RWD and lampposts, I have been practising with my 740 down on the docklands vast concrete swaths and am actually doing pretty well! I can get the tail out, almoston throttle demand, and get it to power slide (well it ain't drifting put it that way) a good 280-300degree;s then pull away from it smoothly. WHich I think is good. I've also slowed down the steering input, as before I was nearly spinnning it on simple dualcarrage way's (you know where you et a tight exit from a roundabout), but I have now learn't to hold on for life, and not correct my steering, and actually the volvo can get around these big sweeping corners much better than the punto:devil:

If you don't exceed the speed limits on roads and decrease your speed when conditions are worse then I doubt you will get into trouble.

I never thought I'd get told that from a policeman :eek:

Mareas don't like going slow, and as for the Sedici - I'm sure it's already been nibbling on my drivers licence.

Maybe you live in an area where everyone drives well even when driving quick ?

I'm only a policeman when I'm working :)
