    Land Rover driver fined after causing cyclist to fall off

    Isnt that the point? Cyclists can be unpredictable due to winds, debris, or just unsteady especially so when travelling slowly which causes drifting etc. That is exactly why close passing is potentially dangerous. That doesn’t mean the copper was sensible riding two abreast as it wasn’t, so the...

    Land Rover driver fined after causing cyclist to fall off

    If they were riding single file then it would have been fine, just try and not close pass. The flat bed lorry tried to overtake and give space by driving on the white lines on the RHS, not ideal but it was an attempt at least. The Waitrose lorry couldnt because it was that much wider

    Land Rover driver fined after causing cyclist to fall off

    Its irrelevant if she was hugging the line or not, the point is not to close pass even if she was, as that was the consequence. Thats why its dangerous thinking just about it being in the lane as so much of the rubbish cycling infrastructure makes drivers think its ok to close pass just because...

    Land Rover driver fined after causing cyclist to fall off

    Not sure about that, but if the lorry had no chance then they shouldnt have overtaken. Personally if I was on a bicycle then I wouldnt have ridden two abreast , even if its legal as it just antagonises people and that sort of close pass at that sort of speed isnt a problem to me so long as he...

    I’d be demanding an explanation why they think it reasonable having someone ragging your car.

    A remap and a couple of new down pipes should sort that out. Do you have a valve in your exhaust, so you can run relatively quiet?

    Girmay was standing directly above the bottle whilst he was unwinding the wire cap when the bottle was on the ground. Pretty daft really as it doesnt take much thought to not stand directly over the bottle when you are unwrapping it knowing these things are potentially under high pressure...

    Working From Home - the latest Tory deflection campaign

    I work from home permanently and work in the private sector. Ive been in the office once in two and a half years. I would say half of the office work from home either full time or hybrid, so thats about 900 people. I work in an Engineering firm, we work to a plan and have deliverables. Its...

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Its quite interesting how some right wing parties seem to have links to Russia and/or Russian money, like the Tories, Trump and Marine le Pen. All seem to like using fake news and telling lies in much the same way

    Cost of Living Crisis

    Dont forget it also includes things like windfarm subsidies, fitting of smart meters, protection of the vulnerable that may not be able to pay, maintenance etc. Im guessing the protection of the vulnerable will take up a whole lot more now

    Cost of Living Crisis

    Not wrong though, I have been skipping a meal everyday for over 8 months doing intermittent fasting and lost nearly 3st. You do have to ensure the other meals you eat are nutritious to make sure you get the nutrients you need which would be a potential problem if you were really poor

    The accident was caused because he was reaching for his drink and not paying attention on what was in front of him.. The fact that 6 other cars avoided the car stopped on an active lane says they were paying attention and he wasnt.

    Objections to Keir Starmer as PM?

    I presume she got sent to prison because she was potentially dealing as no one is taking 9g on a night out edit: Looks like she was either being paid £200 to act as a mule or she was dealing to a guy in the festival
