  1. No it's not Most places are lovely
  2. same here. never been able to see whatever it is that everyone else sees in it
  3. not even slightly irrelevant. many posters are trying to justify their need to be somewhere 15 seconds earlier, when the safety aspects of reducing the limit are far more valuable.
  4. have you managed to not see all the if i drive 130 miles at 70 i will same an hour over driving that distance at 50 posts on this thread. so to the original post. anyone driving at 70 over the last few inches of the parkway will save exactly how much time over driving that same distance at 50, assuming this mythical constant 70 is actually possible.
  5. For those who are now rabbiting on about this mythical ability to drive at a constant 70. If your car is modern enough. Post up the average speed driven from the dash display You might be surprised how slow you actually manage
  6. Nice opinion. Although W10 is not a bad os For instant boot up All day battery No virus concerns The Chromebook is the better buy
  7. I have used Chromebook almost exclusively for the past few yrs. It does what I need. Plus it's light. Battery life is great And was cheap
  8. I travel in and out of the uk around 20 times a yr from dover. the next ferry is a couple of hours away, not 12 hrs. even if you miss the very last one on an evening, the next day starts at 6am. anway, thanks for the valuable input about driving in france. i look forward to hearing how that has a relevance to the parkway.
  9. Not timid here, Frugal. i get close to 20% more efficiency plodding along with the lorries. and that is worth far more to me than the saving of a few minutes on a journey.
  10. I used to love kelham island. Never go there now. To many people looking for the next cool thing. I am sure the trendy crowd love it. But no longer my cup of tea
  11. Has Alan gone? i was a 3 nights a week regular until he came. never went back in.
  12. I would not say he was militant. Just accurate. And facts seem to scare people.
  13. i did one a few yrs ago, and my gf did one about a month back. i went into it unsure what to expect but quite bitter that i felt it was a cash raiser. came out thinking the opposite. turned out to be quite an interesting and informative afternoon, i drive better now and my motorway mpg has risen by around 5mpg so the course has probably paid for itself a number of times.
  14. if you "work" in the the centre your unlikely to be work out after work. hardly in the steelworks etc. so full of energy to ride home after a hard days sitting at a desk. or wandering around a shop
  15. for every hill you cycle up. you get to freewheel down the other side.
  16. Card only stops the bars being ripped off by staff pocketing notes
  17. a couple of links https://www.hughjames.com/news/comment/2017/11/cost-of-road-traffic-accidents/ accidents on roads. cost to the uk 36 billion a year i cant find accurate figures but there where 1.2 million speed camera fines. so i doubt the revenue from the fines even scratches the surface
  18. The world's already at a standstill. Have you driven through town lately
  19. in who's opinion though? the informed, qualified road planners with all the information to hand? or the driver who just wants to be a few seconds faster?
  20. Are people really so rushed in life that they are debating upping the speed limit on a few km of road by 10mph? i would imagine that the time saving would be in the seconds over the distance.
  21. Do you really think there are many non drivers around? Or are you just looking to justify your own opinions Actually. Does it matter? Someone gets caught breaking the law. Who gave you the authority to decide who can comment on that.
  22. It's not their fault Remember. It's always someone else's lol. Is mean. It's unfair. It's a tax etc
  23. Because everyone caught speeding has a reason why it's not their fault.
  24. have a fact or two. the average speed through a city is less than 20mph. 24 will not frustrate a safe driver because they know that in 200metres, are some more traffic lights. and i dont drive to a limit. i also drive a diesel van, and like to hit 50mpg. so i drive safely. i assume you just called me a liar on the milleage, want me to upload the gpx files? every single mile i drive is tracked. its a mark of maturity to know when your wrong. and your wrong.
