    I realise you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I'm perfectly willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and allow you the opportunity to show in what way I've twisted your words. Here's your original post in full: I'm unable to see how such simple words can be taken in any more than one way, but go on. I'm all ears. How have I typically misunderstood your post? You consistently try to insult me and yet would like me to explain myself to you. Who are you exactly? Its becoming tiresome. You've assumed my post about "let my eyes wonder" means I take my eyes off the road for a long time or perhaps longer than is acceptable which isn't true. You've misunderstood my post because you don't know me or what my version of "letting my eyes wonder" actually is. This is the last time i'm replying to you as I've far more important things to do with my time, infact this is the last time i'm posting on this forum as i'm wasting my time full stop. This is an internet forum, not everything written here may be factually correct. My intelligence cannot be solely measured on my spelling/grammar or indeed structure of my posts within a forum. not everyone here has had the chance to a good education, let alone a higher education. Before you feel you can insult peoples intelligence you should perhaps bear that in mind. This isn't just about one off the cuff comment, you try and belittle people constantly, across the board, on a host of different subjects. The fact i've had enough will mean fuck all to you, I have the intelligence to know that. People seemingly love your style of 'off the wall' humour, it says a lot about them too, the battles to outsmart people, the insensitive comments (read TT accidents), trying to be witty/picking fault within people. I just find you rude and arrogant. I choose not to be around negative people like you outside of this forum, its a shame its not so simple to you avoid inside the forum.

    Yes, not just 1 warning sign but 4 in total.

    I only hope it was someone viewing the forum and not a member (who should of read the t&cs) taunting people is not acceptable.

    You make whatever assumptions you like, however one day you're going to upset the wrong person and there can't be many people left for you to offend. I'm not assuming anything. By your own admission you are unable to concentrate on the road ahead after 2-3 miles when stuck in traffic travelling at 40mph. If that isn't shit driving then I don't know what is. In fact, it strikes me as downright dangerous. Listen, I'm bored and tired of you posting shit. You know exactly what I mean but have twisted it in the typical way you do, to read what you want to read. If you'd like to observe my driving feel free to do so, until then your making an assumption and as above now an accusation.

    On another note, are these statistics available that prove people who hold advanced driving certificates drive worse than those who don't?, i've looked into the IAM course myself, I thought it was more like martial arts, those trained to a higher standard (or 'ability') are taught self discipline and control? Whilst car control is like more like the defence stage (what to do when it goes wrong?). Similar to martial arts, used in the wrong hands you can seriously injure/kill someone, but that's part of the self discipline/control.

    People make mistakes, people learn from mistakes, that is part of life. The same can be said that you'll learn from your mistake when someone in a HGV crosses 'your' white line. Had Deano known he was about to become posted on an internet forum for his driving I very much doubt he'd of overtook as it wouldn't of been worth the hassle...........would it?
  7. I much prefer this new update now i've got used to it, thanks.

    As above, that is the real risk, people are truly unpredictable, more so the ones who have powerful cars and only choose to use them as weapons when someone tries to make progress. no amount of advanced training can help that!

    If everyone had some sort of training (asides from learning to pass a test, which could be 50 years out of date or more....), I think the odds would be better though, perhaps even people would realise that their car might not actually deliver the best mpg at 40mph everywhere and in fact most cars are tested to be most economical at a constant 60Mph, that running their cars at low RPM for long periods actually increases deposit build up, not letting their cars get upto temperature once in a while (those who drive <1 mile) can also harm the engine and that replacing fluids is important regardless if you do 800 miles in a year or 8,000. Edit : Oh and that roundabouts actually have a give way feature, its not supposed to be like a medieval jousting contest.

    It worries me that you hold this belief and (presumably) have an opinion in court. There are numerous places on the island where you can pass 6 cars safely, especially if they are travelling slowly and you have a car with some decent punt. I can see both sides of the coin, I have overtook 2-3 cars before now (whist overtaking a slow driver on a straight stretch I might add) and a car infront of me didn't check his mirrors and just pulled out, no indication or anything, its one of the situations whether you either try and accelerate out or brake hard and pull back in. If this happened whilst overtaking 6 cars (even if I calculated the distance accurately ) it could possibly leave me with nowhere to go, there isn't enough room for error over here, once you start overtaking 9 times out of 10 your committed and that's it. Its not a question of ability (car or driver) but that of other road users.

    In that case I can understand you being defensive, however I have drove past these people doing the road works/digging the last couple of days in various locations, each time there hasn't been any sign or any sort of warning, infact until you have to get close enough to the van to establish whether they're actually working in the road or whether its just some cones/barriers left there from a previous job or a current one their going to continue later. A triangle also means 'advised' speed limit, like the one on windy corner, it is not a 20mph limit by law (round speed limit sign), although anyone knowingly driving fast through road works should be punished, after all 30mph is enough to kill. These people aren't DOI either, but a private firm, quite what they're doing I don't know, but it looked like cables or drainage to me.

    Sorry but I must ask this question seeing as you've a bee in your bonnet. Have you been certified as an advanced driver?

    Same could be said for people who have no confidence behind the wheel!
