  5. Hi guys, I've recently received a parking charge notice from the Swansea based Millennium Parking Services. They have asked for £60 with the charge increasing to £100 after 14 days. I am currently a student, so I don't have the money to pay for this and I feel conned. I was using the street to park for my regional rugby training sessions in Llandarcy academy of sport. They don't always have someone blocking the carpark entrance but when they do they don't let me in even if I tell them that my team trains here!! There were no road markings or clear signage for me to know
  6. As per this post on the Parking Pranksters blog. You really couldn't make it up! Unless you're the BPA of course, then you can make up anything you'd like
  7. Just received a renewal notice for my Drivers Digital Tacho Card (expires mid Nov) As I am now retired, I do not plan to drive lorries any more, and indeed do not have a valid Drivers CPC Is it necessary to tell DVLA, there is no place to do so on the form, only to renew or just cancel/destroy on renewal date?
  8. For the full story : - https://www.standard.co.uk/news/transport/learner-drivers-to-be-allowed-on-britain-s-motorways-within-months-a3610466.html Interesting, are they being taught to drive on a motorway.. or Park !!
  9. This is so very wrong - back in 2001 the Labour Government encouraged the purchase of Diesel vehicles, reducing diesel and pumping money into the industry. Now those vehicle owners are being heavily penalised with increased fuel, taxes and now parking charges ! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/news/11007326/Diesel-car-drivers-betrayed-as-EU-cracks-down-on-Britain-over-air-pollution.html https://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/oct/01/uk-government-wrong-to-subsidise-diesel-says-former-minister http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/01/27/new-londo

  11. I have a disabled son confined to a wheelchair (he is unable to drive), we are in the process of getting him a motability wheelchair accessible vehicle, my question is as follows. Motability will insure me and normally insure one other driver, in this case my 22 year old able bodied son who lives very close to his disabled brother, so he was going to be the main driver. The problem we have is motability will not insure my son as he has a motoring offence (driving without Insurance) which is over 3 years old so not on his licence. Motability have said as it is
  12. Today I received a court summons for failing to identify the driver from a speeding ticket I received at work in last august. The problem is, at the time I was technically homeless (sleeping on friends/family's sofas) but using my dad's address so missed the first letters. Then I found a room to rent last September, changed the address on my driving licence and receive the letter, which I filled in and sent off just before Christmas so I thought it was done. Now I have a court summons for failing to identify the driver. Twice I have admitted I was the dri
  13. Just to advise drivers to be aware of the BP 5p/litre saving on fuel. To achieve this reduction you have to purchase two food items from a small list. MAKE SURE THE COST OF THE TWO ITEMS IS NOT MORE THAN YOUR FUEL SAVINGS.

  15. Hi Guys, my partner has received a notice for her details from the police for an alleged "action" in a car park used by mums picking up kids from pre-school. it states the Application is for the drivers details for alledged driving dangerously, carelessly or without consideration for other persons, contrary to sections 2 and 3 of the road traffic act 1988. They want the details of the driver on the date of the incident before they say anything else about the alleged offence. Their form is leading as if you fill it out it confirms you were driving (2 months ag
  16. The Highways Agency is encouraging road users to spend a few minutes making sure they, and their vehicle, are fully prepared for severe weather. You might think that most of their advice is blindingly obvious, but a survey showed that: Many motorists (45%) don’t do any winter checks at all on their vehicle Nearly two-thirds of drivers (63%) do not check their anti-freeze, oil or water before setting off on a winter journey Less than half (41%) said they checked their lights were working before setting out. Just over half (53%) of drivers don’t have warm clothes in their car
  17. I tried to get insurance from the cheapest quote on GoCompare.com, which was for £800 from "4 Young Drivers". I called them and quoted the reference number, to which the chap on the phone told me that the price on the website was just the "referral price" and that I would never get that price. Instead he said I would be paying around £1,600!!! (My last years insurance was £600!!) Having contacts in the travel industry, I know exactly how this works, and these insurance companies use compare websites to drive calls, then find any possible reason to come away from the advertised price
  18. Many drivers face a fine of £1,000 if they fail to update their photo-card driving licences, according to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. It started issuing photo-card licences 15 years ago and more than 30 million drivers now have one. These are usually valid for 10 years and there is a legal requirement for drivers to renew the photograph at the same time as they renew their licence. However, two million drivers have failed to do this. And this means they could be fined up to £1,000 should they be pulled over by the police, who then discover that the p
  19. Hi Techies, I have a quick issue that is bogging me and not much help coming from Mr Google either. I will explain. I have just been handed an old work Laptop for my personal use – Model is a DELL LATITUDE E4310 Laptop. I have put a Windows 7 OS Build on it but simply cannot get the Wireless Network to function. I guess I need Drivers for this. The Wireless Software is missing so I cannot get the Laptop to pick up the List of Wireless Network Routers Around me either as there is no Wireless Software on the Laptop. The Bluetooth Software is fine. I have been on Google to Dow

  23. My drivers license picture expired in 2011, before i could have a new photo done my license was stolen (home invasion) i have yet to have it done. The problem, i dont have my old license to send back and its only just come to me that i havent had it done! As i say, i was subject to a brutal home invasion where i was stabbed multiple times and almost killed in my home. I suffer from severe PTSD to this day because of it. Ive only just remembered that the photo was out of date after reading a thread on here about it....it had totally gone out of my mind. I had more pressing issues, ie movin
