Yes. I've been driving the mountain daily for 35 years. Most foggy days its 40 (if you're lucky). If you can't drive 14 miles at 40mph without falling asleep then perhaps you shouldn't be driving.

You must be one of these people up there doing 45 with a half mile queue of cars behind you. I’ve probably overtaken you every day for the last 35 years 👍

The little shit in the white car could have involved at least 4 vehicles in a nasty accident there. And yet people are saying it was ok. That, the saying it was ok, is the sort of attitude that brings in speed limits.

To be honest he hoofed it but the risks don’t seem to be that bad on reflection. Everyone seems to be looking for something to be angry about at the moment. Self evidently there was no actual accident.

You 'only' joined  in '15, so how would you know? That is, under your current guise.?

I can't imagine why anyone should post as different personas, some are easily found out and this is known to them, so why bother?

It is obvious from their past knowledge of the forums, that some new posters are not so?

I cannot think of a reason to think of yourself Horatio  as a new poster when it obvious that you are  not so?

I think you were banned a few weeks ago? Semitic remarks.? You came back somewhat contrite but have now slipped back into your usual, spring diatribe, of I want me me me to the fore!!!

Debate? Yes

Repetitive? Yes.

Semitic remarks?  I sincerely hope that is a typo

It’s because of people like you that the police take every opportunity to close the mountain road when they can, causing mass inconvenience to all responsible drivers (including me) Hopefully over time you will mature.

To be fair, looks like about 2.5-3seconds between the Focus crossing back to the left side of the road and the oncoming traffic arriving where the Focus had been on the right side of the road. It's not a great overtake, but the camera angle is distorting the danger somewhat.

 

I'd have felt a bit of a twat had it been me doing that overtake, but it wasn't outright dangerous.

I'd agree with your summary

I'd say most people have overtaken and halfway through thought "shit I shouldn't have done that" and it's a learning experience

There will be perfect people who have never done it and they're of course amazing

There will be people who do it often and think "fuck it" and are arseholes

And then there's everyone else who probably doesn't deserve to be hung drawn and quartered because someone filmed them doing it and publicly shamed them so everyone can sit around and feel good about themselves

If you’re from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland and you can prove you’ve been vaccinated, you will be exempt from testing and quarantine requirements on arrival into Iceland.

You must be able to provide a proper vaccination certificate showing where, when and which vaccines were given. This must include the manufacturer and batch lot.

 

(Will Tesco do the same?)

 

Will the island do the same for visitors or residents who have travelled ?

surely it would be wise to wait until we know if the vaccination cuts down on transmission before bringing in that sort of thing?

also unless the vaccination process includes provision of a certificate system (like yellow fever did) how can it be regulated?

We already know it does by a significant margin

there's been a few studies suggesting a 2/3's reduction

it's not a gold plated review

Amadeus says the RS was already driving like a wally, he witnessed 2 dangerous overtakes and he started recording because he was waiting for the third, I think on this occasion it wasn’t a genuine ‘oops’ moment but someone having a Sunday blast and behaving impatient when stuck behind slower moving vehicles.

It was people like that that brought in the no overtaking rule in lockdown 1.

Got that IOM bank txt, nipped in on Friday pleasantly surprised empty as tut an Karmen's tomb. Deposited through auto teller,  so I will be the guy who buys a pint and sits in corner and not joined in with karaoke. According to Hetty criteria, Expect tomorrow will be classed as little risk upgraded to moderate risk, Advancing to we know where you live stay in we are coming to screw doors and windows shut and tape up your crevices. Anybody guess

I was in two low risk locations last week, not a lot you can do really, we are all effectively isolating for at least another 2 weeks anyway.
