    Traffic Police: Why do they generally drive over the speed limit with no lights?

    As above really. I'm not out for a slagging match, i'm just wondering if the members of her majesty's finest on this forum could offer some explanation. I spend about 2 hours each working day on the M4, and I regulary see traffic cars doing well over the limit, about 80-90 mph i'd say, with no...

    MB world, Iphone and traffic cops

    Went down to MB world today for the first time. What an amazing array of cars on show to play with. New E63 AMG too. Nice. They had £10 per person for rides in the AMG cars, and even the drive yourself for 30minutes was only £50, down from £170 for 60minutes. However the day turned bad when I...

    I have CDI 220 SE and on the radio display it shows TP but does not cut in to the traffic reports. How do I get this or is it a fault. Also I do not have a radio user manuel. Is there anywhere I can download or buy one?

    Drivers could face £20 fine for leaving engines running in traffic jams

    Motorists could face £20 spot fines if they leave their engines running while stuck in traffic. Traffic wardens will be able to issue the penalties - after a warning - in a bid to cut down on pollution. Mr Watters added: 'The legislation allowing councils to impose such fines has been on the...

    Start-Stop driving in traffic

    Often when I'm sitting a jam I turn the engine off. Then, as the queue starts moving I re-start the engine and continue. I'm lucky having keyless-go, so its not a great effort. But I did wonder what the down side might be in terms of the service interval. Would this style of driving get me...

    Moan / Buzz noise in traffic.

    I've got a '99 210 300TD estate. I notice that after driving around there's a sound like a buzz or moan at 1200 to 1400 rpm. I think it's something resonnating, but haven't been able to trace it. It's not A/C. Seems to be comming from front left wheel arch area. Any one had a similar experience...
