  1. I assume (as per the title "Perfect Peel") that the video captured hundreds of vehicles from "shaving the paint" to destroying the vehicle (or the barrier). That particular clip was "perfect" It does show, though, how there is almost zero strength in an empty cube designed to sit on a truck chassis with the design aim of minimum weight / maximum volume.
  2. @magpie patrick and @noddyboater - and there is the nub of the problem - "Don't care" on one side (by the lorry) and "Apathy" on the other (by enforcement)
  3. And there is the excuse We regularly have 44 tonners dropping off a bag of sugar and thereby "needing access"
  4. Be careful hoovering around the fan itself. It's possible that hoovering will cause the fan to spin (very) rapidly generating electricity which damages the control circuitry (or at least it can on PC motherboards)
  5. I'm slightly worried that my brother has proved more competent at IT than Mike...
  6. Up to 1967 "the" Milton Keynes was a small village. In 1967 the "New City" (still disputed whether "City" is correct) of Milton Keynes began. The two ran in parallel for a while until the village was renamed "Middleton" to prevent HGV's looking for "Milton Keynes City Centre" getting lost / stuck. So pre 1967 - ish.
  7. I'm intrigued (although I've seen the signs plenty of times before) at a "Heavy Motor Car, any axle exceeding five tons" - these days, the whole vehicle wheghing five tons is a different class.

  9. As someone said to me many years ago "Cars are 'parked', boats are 'moored' and Navy ships are 'secured'"

  16. For five batteries with six cells each it might be simpler to install a cheap thermal camera (is there such an animal??) with a reasonable view of the top of the cells. As nothing moves physically it shouldn't be that hard to process the video and extract max and average temp (relatively) and sound an alarm if the max is way higher than the average. Don't need to know what the actual temperature IS just that one part of the image is a lot brighter.

  19. So, hypothetically, do you have to stop and abandon the trip for a broken paddle?
