  • Apple patents technology to stop texting while driving - but 6 years on, it's still not live1 year 4 weeks agoThe iphone can or apps can

    The iphone can or apps can translate texts and emails into text. Frankly, its not really an improvement. Same with bluetooth, still a massive distraction although at least it stops people holding their phones.
    I have used bluetooth and faffing with the cars controls is as bad as a phone.

    i dont use my phone at all in the car, i do think it's dangerous (not to say i havent used it in the past). In all honesty, their is an answer and that for cars to be made into faradays cages BUT that would stop passengers and alsort of other things as well. At the end of the day, it's us who need to drive forward any change, the car companies and phone companies wont and to be honest, why should they? They aren't our moral guardians so instead they will continue to push the boundaries of legality.

  • RANT ALERT - Getting fed up..1 year 4 weeks agoFuck me this is a tiresome

    Fuck me this is a tiresome forum thread - I'm not blaming Moo, if she feels the victim of sexism on this site, then she's the victim of sexism on this site. Attempts to justify it as trolling or banter are pretty pathetic. Perhaps those bantermeisters ought to leave that shit for the sales rep meetings rather than exhibit their misogyny on a public forum?

    Also, and though I try to resist picking on people's writing skills, "Northstar", your use of quotation "marks" not "only" make you look "thick" but also make me "think" you're a Daily Mail "reader". Food for "thought".

  • Cycling in London1 year 4 weeks agoQuote:and under no

    Quote:
    and under no circumstances, whether its indicating or not DO NOT go up the inside of it.

    The next time you go driving your truck anywhere in London, try having a look at the cycling infrastructure that currently exists and look where it directs cyclists to ride.

    Quote:
    Secondly if you wear headphones whilst riding so you can't hear whats going on around you, well your a moron.

    So you think that deaf people riding bikes are morons?

    Typical victim blaming, ill thought out, ignorant nonsense that does nothing to either further the dialogue, or contribute solutions.

    I'll lay this down for you: Dont drive your HGV in London (or other major cities and towns).

    A few simple reasons:

    1. You have piss poor visibility to see whats going on around your vehicle.
    2. You have poor manoeuvrability in Londons already small streets.
    3. Your diesel engine runs inefficiently with Londons (and other cities) stop start traffic flow therefore creates vast amounts of pollution. Pollution that consists of PM2.5 which is incredibly damaging and gets deep into the lungs and body.
    4. The majority of HGVs stopped fail inspection checks by the police. Either with the vehicle being unroadworthy, the driver being unlicensed or driving for too long without breaks or a combination of all three.

    It is HGVs that are a danger to all road users, not the other way around.

    Yep it is, but there will be people who can say (some no doubt on this forum) they've been done through a camera at 32 and got the ticket through the post. In the end its a guideline not a strict ruling and that leaves it open to the person setting the camera up.

    My apologies, the word 'guideline' was indeed used.

    It is, however, exactly that - a guideline. Prosecutions have - and will - be made at lower speeds than those.

  • Video: TfL apologises to cyclist after bus driver calls him a “knob” following close pass1 year 4 weeks agoI'm coming round to the idea

    I'm coming round to the idea of helmet cams on bikes, and in some situations, posting on youtube if the behavior is particularly dangerous or illegal

    But stuff like this ('she called me a knob after i caught her up to have a go at her when she passed me too close for my liking'!) just brings it into disrepute I feel and compromises legitimate, serious safety concerns. 'We' (cyclists) will just be seen as whinging, antagonistic & uncompromising - especially if you read some of the comments on here - as Neil753 has also observed.

    The pass wasn't particularly close, it's a busy urban environment where you're likely to have to start/ stop all the time. Even cyclists have to do this! So I don't think this was anything to get exercised about. If you reckon that's close and are so outraged, I really would not recommend cycling in a town or city. Ever!

    Mind you a camera van will be set at a certain speed and i've known them be set at the likes of 32mph in a 30 limit but if its through the vascar or laser then the 10% +2 will probably be used.

    er....there isn't, and hasn't been for quite some time.

    er......I'm not a traffic cop but have just seen a table on an ACPO pdf that indicates that 10%+2mph seems to be the threshold for a FPN. The ACPO link goes straight to downloading a pdf but this link below shows the same information. I know it's only a guideline and the individual officer still has discretion but I doubt that plod would bother reporting / ticketing a person knowing that it doesn't meet charging standards, unless he/she can evidence other factors that justify it.

  • Bottom Bracket Wear1 year 4 weeks agoIf you want something simple

    If you want something simple that lasts I would go for square taper over an external BB chain set. The wear tends to be down to externals needing to be tightened to a rather narrow torque setting, slightly too much and they eat them self in rapid order. 105's are known for it as well.

    I picked up the link via the tourist board and CRC back in March. Was done and dusted after 40 mins or so. A couple of friends were on for a few hours. Was expecting it to be sluggish anyways. Looking forward to it. I'm sure the servers were beefed up for the event and regardless of this everything is going to grind to a halt with the volume of traffic. Tried for the commonwealth games and had to give up so this is a nice wee bonus.
