Let's hope the police come down hard on the guy, and it's good to hear the car isn't as bad as you thought. At least now you can focus on getting better.

Yeah that's pretty shocking, they're basically keeping track of everywhere you go by default, and 99% of people will have no idea it's happening. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think on Android every app asks for your permission before tracking your location.

Wonder if it would charge an iPhone 5 or 6?

 

It should do, just not as quickly as a dedicated charger.

"Neither of the drivers, including a man in the other car, a black Vauxhall, was injured" lol why am I not surprised. Typical Vauxhall driver probably texting on his phone and had his music blaring, so didn't see or hear the police car with blues & twos, I bet that's what happened :P

Saw this retractable usb/iphone adaptor,
Would be ideal for the centre console of the car for connecting and charging.

Particularly where one occupant has an Android phone and the other has an Apple device
The same cable consumes less space and caters for both devices:

Ofcourse iphone 6 users will still need an adaptor to convert to the smaller connection
But this device solves most of the world :lol:

 

Very useful, and look, the iPhone connector is designed to bend :P

Horses they should have insurance and pay tax too. They !Removed! everywhere on roads and paths and never gets cleared up. They cause traffic as you have to slow right down and there horse shoes chip away at the road surfaces !! Tax/insure them or ban them!!!

P.s I don't like horses :P

 

It's a good thing you don't live down my road, horses are up and down it all the time. I don't mind them though, and I always try to pass them slowly and quietly. That's not so easy in the ST, when the turbo wants to make loud hissing noises if you go anywhere near the accelerator lol.

It's not surprising that they bend just from being in a pocket, I can feel my phone in my pocket whenever I crouch down, and there's clearly quite a lot of tension on it. It's a cheap plastic phone so I'm not worried :P

No but if a cyclist crashed into your car and causes damage. Who has it to pay for

 

Good point, can't really argue with you there. The only problem is you'd have to have bikes with number plates and all paperwork like you do with a car, it would be more hassle than it's worth.




#413601 Are St Dustcaps Chav Magnets?

Posted by Phil 87 on 26 September 2014 - 07:59 AM

Someone needs to invent a device to electrocute anyone who touches the metal dust caps, maybe it could store all the static from the car so anyone who tries to nick them gets a nice shock :P

Maybe when the phone bends the IOS code bends too and everything goes wrong :P

I was thinking the same whenever stuck behind a cyclist I normally take a look at my speeder and often they are doing 20+mph that is actually a very fast way to travel

 

Yeah they are normally going pretty fast, but I look at the double lines as a case-by-case thing, I mean sometimes they are on a long road with a slight bend, and you can see way ahead, it's easily safe enough to overtake a cyclist especially in a fast car. Although most cars these days can be quick from say 15 to 30.

Any car that deliberately and dangerously attempts an overtake on a merging lane is to blame in my opinion. If you cannot judge the gap and you do it, its driving without due care. Merge in turn does not offer a "Give Way" to merging traffic in any means, and so the lorry had as much right to proceed as he did, the car should wait if necessary by stopping in the merge lane until it is safe to move in.

 

I think unless there was specific evidence to suggest that the lorry did deliberately manovre in a way to prevent the car merging, then its the cars fault. And even if he did pick up pace, its hard for a lorry to slow or stop, therefore if any blame was due, it would be very much less in his favour.

 

Yes I agree, the car would absolutely be to blame if there was a collision, but if the lorry driver was being sensible and planning ahead he would have seen that car trying to overtake and just let him in. It's not worth trying to stop selfish drivers from cutting in front of you, although I'm being a bit of a hypocrite because I do this sometimes, especially when there's a lane closed and they go shooting up to the cones and push their way in, god I hate that :P
