Or move through a traffic light at red to let a fire engine or ambulance
through.

Only the police are able to let you break traffic laws in these
circumstances.

I assume you know NOT to speed up to get out of the way of an ambulance
or
fire engine.

Hi Baltasar,
Motorhome swap means motorhome exchange - the list member in N.Z. wanted to borrow a motorhome in uk and then the people lending this vehicle could use the N.Z. owners vehicle in N.Z.

Asunto: [MH-list] motorhome swap


Hi

Can any one help us. We are Kiwis (NZ) and are hoping to do a motor
home swap with someone in the UK next summer we have listed on
motorhomeholidayswa p.com and UKmotorhomes. net but have not been
successful. People who have done a swap reply and tell us how well
it went and others that they have made arrangements, but many don't
reply at all which is sad. Does anyone know any other sites that we
could look at or any other suggestions. We have a son in London and
we feel we would like to visit him have a look around the UK. I am
wondering if it is because ours is a 6 metre bus - profession
conversion most of the bells and whistles just no TV.

I have been reading about the solar panels we have one which keeps
our "house" batteries topped up so we always have plenty of energy
for heating hot water and the inverter (I think that is what you call
it) Plenty of power for my lap top etc.

I have enjoyed reading all your comments, sorry to hear about the
stolen van and pets, a good reminder to us to lock up when we leave
it.

Linda and Ivor

Re: [MH-list] Re: Repeat Prescriptions while in Europe

Carol Weaver
 

Our doctor has been fine, and when I need extra, I explain why and they
provide them. I was even given 6 months when we went down to Spain that
winter of 2003/4.... mind you they all took up a whole flipping
cupboard...too many for going in one carrier bag even....

Having just got back from France, and had a very bad problem with a crown,
where an abscess formed beneath the pin, I was unable to buy antibiotics
over the counter, we did try. Luckily the first time, we were with friends
in the Rhone Alps, and although German they speak excellent French having
living in Geneva for over 30 years, they managed to arrange an emergency
appointment for me..... the second time in Narbonne, we asked the tourist
information office for help in arranging an emergency appointment for
another lot of x-rays and prescription.....again not free....

My pills would I am sure be expensive abroad, being diabetic and on maximum
pills (threatened now with insulin) I will keep in with my doctor...

We hoidayed in Portugal last year for 4 months and I was able to buy my
medication over the counter there much cheaper than a prescription in
the UK costs, which I did.In the meantime my daughter wa still putting
my repeat prescriptions in at the doctors so now I have a supplyi in
hand so that the next time I am away for a long period of time I have
no worries about obtaining my medication.

You may need to be careful to select a company with UK-based servers if

You want to be glad we don't live in Oz. I have a friend in Victoria
who was done for doing 51kph in a 50kph area! That's about 30.6mph in a
30 area?

Their argument is "it's a maximum speed NOT a target speed".

They don't mess about painting their cameras in bright colours or
telling you where they're going to be either.
I saw one handheld one on a dead straight road in the back of beyond
and he was hiding in the hedge bottom with the gun poking through the
leaves.

Mind you, you soon get the message, DO NOT SPEED in Oz!
But returning to the original post, that makes it great for cruise
control as everyone's going the same speed.

So do I, Peter, but the neighbours complain about the noise!

But, back to the topic....

It is true that ACPO guideline is 10% + 2 mph and this is generally the standard. However, at an advanced driving group meeting, we were told that this guideline is overruled on certain stretches of road for any of several reasons including collision record, proximity to sensitive locations (schools, hospitals, etc.), local campaigns....

On those occasions, the penalty speed may be reduced right down to just above the posted limit. As has already been said, a speedometer is not allowed to under read so whenever a penalty is imposed it follows that the vehicle instrumentation was reading at or above the recorded speed.

Have you seen the evidence for this? If your neighbour was convicted then I
would suggest an appeal. In practice 10% over the limit is not prosecuted
due to margins of error in detection. In most circumstances, working
practice was 10% + 3mph before prosecution was considered.

Oh my goodness, the la strada trento looks gorgeous. Yes it was very
much like that one. But as the wingamm in the CC mag is way out of
our price range, I'm guessing the la strada will be too. And as I
think we're going to have on street parking (if you're lucky to get a
space) in Italy, perhaps we just need to look for an old van, so that
when it gets body work scraps, it won't knock off quite so much value!

About £9 to transfer .com domain, other domains cheaper.

Right old performance sorting it all out though.

As an aside, TomTom gives an estimated time to destination. Try dropping
your speed by 5mph. It takes a long time and several miles before you ETA
stretches by more than a minute or so.

Hi BobC,

I have a thing in my bonnet about angles if approach. If a camera is set up
to give an accurate reading when pointing straight down the road, then it will
give an inaccurate reading when pointing across the road at an angle. And
the closer the vehicle, the steeper the angle. Yes?

OK, the closer you get to the camera, the slower it will think you are
travelling, until when you are alongside the camera it will think you are
stationary. So it works in your favour.

But, would it be fair to assume that the zappers know about this, and adjust
their cameras accordingly. In which case it can then work against you. If
the camera is set for a 20° angle, but is used at 10°, then it will show you
travelling faster than you really are. I suggest that zero tolerance is actually
a minus tolerance. ??? And anyway, any copper knows how to add a few MPH.
