#468675 Subaru Impreza (Kd05 Vpf) Driver Decides To Cut A Corner

Not withstanding the blatantly obvious hazard warning lines in the centre of the road . . .

 

Please correct me if I'm wrong (I know you have knowledge of this) but dashed white lines mean it's fine to cross them?? As opposed to hatching which means you can cross them but take caution??

Didn't put you, him or anyone else in danger.

 

No road markings to tell him not to do that, no oncoming traffic and what looked like a very clear view of the road ahead.

 

I'll do that if it's safe and means I can take the corner straighter.

Maybe they have a phobia of metal barriers so they're trying to keep as far away from them on both sides lol.

 

It makes me wonder if a lot of people still think of the left lane as the "slow lane" meant for lorries only. But even if they did think that, a lorry could still undertake them at the speeds they do.

 

 

 

That sounds like the correct way to do it, but it's not what I do. If I can see I will be overtaking something again in say 30 seconds, and that I won't hold anything up by staying in lane 2 or 3, I'll stay in the lane. I'm not sure but I think that's more like what they do in some other countries, maybe America. I used to always go back into the slow lane but then you end up stuck behind lorries waiting for a gap to overtake, or doing lots of lane changes when you don't really need to.

 

Yeah I too take a more common sense approach, but if I know I'm holding someone up I'll more over immediately.

So is it illegal now to sit in the middle lanes doing 70 now? kind of makes the other lanes pointless now and everyone is now supposed to chop in out dodging lorries left right and centre, or is it specifically for slow old dears trundling along?

 

 

You should keep left unless over taking, irrespective of speed. If there's no one ahead and you're doing 80mph you should still keep in the left lane until there's something to overtake

Brilliant, I have noticed that middlelane hoggers are all the same people - they sit 3" from the wheel and always look terrified  :lol:

I can't afford to claim as its 250 excess then another 400 young drivers excess then the rest and then there's me loosing my no claims and not being able to afford insurance for 10 years. It's just not worth it :(. I haven't even notified them as the actual accident ended on private property I suppose, and the damage has been paid for

I'd love a classic, I wanted one before the mk6 but the Mrs wasn't happy about the idea :(

I'll get one eventually even if it means guilt tripping her ahha

 

Same thing for me, if i ever had an accident it's 500 excess, which for the mk5 is more than it's worth, so not much point :(

 

I'm desperately after an XR2i before they start going for silly money but can't have another car - 3 is too many as it is :D

Id never have a mk4 but looking at them I honestly wouldn't mind a mk3!

 

Me too lol, never a mk4 :D

 

I can recommend a mk3, I loved mine when I was driving it, still do but hardly ever get to see it :(

 

 

I'm sick of getting my hopes up then silly little things crushing them to bits :(.

Insurance companies are the work of the devil! B45tard5

Everything's just money money money.. except my bank account.. which is empty

 

Will the insurance company not pay out then?

I hate to admit it but I've been looking at a Rover Mini city! Haha

I just want my freedom back!!!

Now you've mentioned it Ill have to have a look at an older fiesta. If it wasn't for insurance I could have had an XR2

 

XR2 would be nice now the weather is getting better :)

 

I'd give the rover a miss though, I hear corsa's are cheap to insure and buy :P

Some really bad luck you are having here. Such a shame.

 

You could always look at picking up a mk4 (or even a mk5  :D) for the time being, just so you have something until funds allow you to return to a mk6?

No problems until your iilegal bulbs dazzle an oncoming driver & are responsible for the ensuing crash . . . ?

 

They do not, I have not been flashed once for them because mine are properly aligned (probably dipped too much if anything). the amount of times I am dazzled with legal 55w bulbs because they aren't aligned properly is ridiculous.
