  1. 8 years. Should have been longer so let's hope he gets duffed up inside. http://m.derbytelegraph.co.uk/alexander-hogg-sentenced-to-eight-years-in-prison-after-hilton-police-chase-crash/story-30333045-detail/story.html
  2. This bellend is being sentenced at Derby Crown Court on Monday. Technically the cop could have continued but if he had been pursuing when this happened, the IPCC would have had many cards to play. This shuts them up altogether. Well worth watching the footage. Absolute scumbag http://m.derbytelegraph.co.uk/watch-matthe...story.html
  3. Yep
  4. Any warranty small print that says they don't have to honour the warranty if fitted by another garage is insignificant. The warranty is a separate entity to your statutory rights as already mentioned above. You would have also been covered under S.15 of the Act if you'd have had it installed by Ford. That section covers installation of a product and of course labour costs. Any replacement part that you have fitted by Ford will be chargeable in terms of labour. If you discovered that the part was in fact installed incorrectly by the other garage, then you could return to them and look at sections 48, 54 & 55 of the Act. In simple terms this means the garage should use care and skill when installing something and if they don't, you could force them to do it again at their expense. It really comes down to whether the part was faulty or if it was just installed incorrectly. Maybe it's a case of both!
  5. True. Luckily in insurance disputes its a case of the balance of probabilities so I guess they would conclude why on earth would I indicate left but turn right. Although some insurers just go split liability for the quiet life!
  6. I cranked the volume right up and can just about hear the indicator.
  7. The guy in the first clip did a u-turn at a bank of traffic lights and by the time he had completed it, the traffic to the right of the camera had gone to green! In the second clip, despite me indicating right and having right of way, the van driver went anyway! I hope I never have an incident where I need to prove I was indicating though because the indicators are ridiculously quiet and inaudible!! - Footage from Roadhawk DC-2.
  8. Just magnificent.
  9. Absolutely
  10. Can we just take a moment to applaud this man. Those terrible cowardly attacks summed up nicely.
  11. I assume there is some sort of watchdog that oversees car dealers and warranty companies etc. or at the other end of the scale, you try to prove that its their fault and sue them for cost of repair. Would be difficult unless you have documentary evidence of these fob offs. They will just say they never said that when confronted.
  12. On dashcam network now
