They were voted in by the majority to make decisions for the UK so itís up to them what happens. They constantly say they wonít increase taxes but bring in loads of stealth ones Iím sure the people who voted them in didnít want that either.

What people have to realize is read between the lines this has been done before in the 80s new learner motorcycles where restricted to 35mph/ 2.5 hp and they wanted changes to cars but was stopped by a government team looking into it. Now this new 2022 ruling this is to push people towards the rail system which is crap and very expensive, the effect on performance people business, the time increase in travel time will drive people to other methods off travel. The EU has designs on many new ideas which will make you hair curl. Germany has banded all diesel vehicles off a certain age in two major cities as a scrappage deal for a new cars like we had here a few years ago. The German car companies have voiced there worries to Merkel so much so have cut there help to political parties in Germany and when the EU asked the Germans for another 20 billion to prop up the EU losses. So new 5g there is a reason as it maps peoples surrounding and everything they do a pulsed millimeter wave length. They want people to share vehicles with no drivers so you just input where you wish to go and just sit there. What a load of **** and so be part off the EU and you can sit there a scratch your ass going to the shops or Brexit and decide what we want.

Suspect most people would like an automatic taxi. The average person is not a car enthuast, don’t care about handling, power or looks. It gets you from a to b. If it can do that with no driver input, I reckon people and businesses would accept it (after skeptism).

Highway Code Rule 169:

(Which isn't in itself legally binding)


The Police have been on record more than once:

"The police recommendation to slow-moving vehicles is to pull over, where it is safe to do so, and make use of lay-bys, when you have six or more vehicles behind you."

(which in itself is also not legally binding)


There have been a number of convictions of offences of holding up traffic by slow moving vehicles, where fines and points have been given.

I can only presume this is under "inconsiderate driving" laid down in the Road Traffic Act, Section 3:


Careless, and inconsiderate, driving.

If a person drives a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place without due care and attention, or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road or place, he is guilty of an offence.Ē

Inconsiderate Driving is defined in Section 3ZA, para (4) of the Road Traffic Act 1988:


Section 3ZA

Meaning of careless, or inconsiderate, driving

[snip]

para (4) - A person is to be regarded as driving without reasonable consideration for other persons only if those persons are inconvenienced by his driving.]



All the best

Ok now i know that i pull in for every forty sixth car behind me. Thanks

Anything for a quiet life it seems, that will lead to a load of trouble, by which time it will be too late for all of us.
Oh and talking of brexit, if all the 17 million people who voted leave started a new political party they would govern forever, now there is a thought

Its like in Ireland this man crashed his BMW and he got out and was standing having a fag when the police turned up and he said he didn't call for help and how did you know I had a crash. The car sent info off the crash, and he was then breathalized and found to be over the limit. Its the beginning off control so driving will not be a pass time for us car owners who like FUN! The top supercars are all linked to the factories for car use service rev use on engine and GPS whats its been doing.

So driving like a total **** on the road in a super car whilst being drunk is ok?

Come on guys, I agree with some of this but safe driving is surely a good thing!?

The news today BBC1 cars create pollution, well there a shock but do you see the trend. This is all the tree huggers in the BBC. Years ago leaded fuel was stopped for sale and one side effect was believe this better temperament in the population so they now use unleaded with benzene which will kill you with cancer. Its the nice smell when you fill your car that's benzene.

No you don't understand the point off the thread he was caught because he had a new BMW and because off the crash soft wear in the ECU of the car the idiot crashed. He was drunk as a consequence the coppers done him. The new car will not function threw contact with the steering wheel if you insurance is up, you cant lend the car to someone else as their not insured. Even high blood alcohol can be checked so car wont work. Servicing mot to many in the car.etc etc
