  1. You are missing out then, after a gruelling 60 minute cruise today finding the club house bar closed we retreated to the local Spoons where 12 real ales were on, most from local breweries and £1.50 a pint cheaper than the Fullers pub next door! The staff were also great with the kids
  2. No you don't Saying that the only time I have actually used the App, after having made sure that it wasn't delivered to the equivalent table in the other Aylesbury Spoons, a member of staff came out and said that my choice was off and that I could choose a more expensive option at no extra cost!
  3. I can remember newspaper adverts from Volvo explaining this to other drivers!
  4. My Passat has the annoying feature that it turns the satnav to night mode when the automatic lights come on which I find almost impossible to read :-)
  5. Depends if the gantries contain working speed cameras!
  6. 10% plus 9mph https://www.nottinghamshire.police.uk/faqs/how-do-i-know-if-i’m-eligible-speed-awareness-course
  7. Having done a couple of the courses I can say that they very informative. I was expecting three hours of being told off but have been surprised at my lack of mine, and pretty well everybody else's on the courses, knowledge of current regulations and limits
  8. Very sad to hear, I worked with him many times at IWA National Festivals and often spoke to him on the Braidbar stand at Crick boat shows He posted here as Bruceinsanity , his blog describing his illness is at https://nbsanity.blogspot.com/ Tim
  9. My present and last couple of cars have speed limiters which I tend to set at a few mph over the speed limit. This is particularly useful in London where large parts now have 20mph speed limits even on major roads.
  10. Unfortunately the rest of my driving career not as lucky
  11. Not quite, I was once offered one after being clocked doing 86 in a 70 limit. Not sure if the rules are countrywide but for instance in Nottingham the cut off limit is 10% plus 9mph https://www.nottinghamshire.police.uk/faqs/how-do-i-know-if-i’m-eligible-speed-awareness-course Tim
  12. Possibly getting mixed up with cameras used to detect vehicles going into Low Emission and Ultra Low Emission Zones such as we have in London: How the LEZ works There are no barriers or toll booths within the LEZ. Instead, cameras will read your number plate as you drive within the LEZ and check it against our database of registered vehicles. This database is compiled using information from the DVLA and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), generic vehicle weight data typical of the make and model, and drivers and operators who have registered with us. This tells us automatically whether your vehicle meets the LEZ emissions standards, is exempt, is registered for a discount, or if you've already paid the daily charge. Tim
  13. A sad one in today's news: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-51220714
  14. It’s alwAys struck me as a slightly dodgy mooring being in the outside of a 90 degree turn!
