    Useful Traffic Camera info

    After the misery of being stuck in snow on Saturday, and realising both the Highways Agency and Met Office sites are hopeless at real time info, looking around I found the BBC traffic info site here has up to date feeds from traffic cameras all over the country, so you can check traffic...

    It irritates me to the core that when i've got the sound turned right up, listening to my favourite Burt Bacharat cd, suddenly the local traffic news comes on 2 stops louder and ruins my 'lost in the music' mood. :wallbash: Could someone please tell me how to turn this off or at least make it...

    Any Traffic Police here?

    I am just wondering what the code of practice is when it comes to stopping vehicles on a hard shoulder. :dk: This was posted on another forum I visit and it just seemed a bit wrong to me. This was at about 4.15am, In my opinion this should never have been allowed, they should have either...

    D or N at traffic lights - another view

    I stumbled across a few arguments about whether you should leave an auto car in N or D at traffic lights. I go into N more often than not. Unless someone with knowledge of what exactly happens inside a g/box when it shifts from N to D can enlighten, I would say that the wear when the car is in...

    Beaten at the traffic lights ...

    Coming home in the SL500 on Saturday night, stopped in the outside lane of 3 at a set of lights. Alongside me is a Vito. Lights change, off we go, Vito gets the jump on me and I have to pull in behind it when the road goes back down to 2 lanes after the junction. The shame, the humiliation...
