Practice makes perfect
A wise parent or friend will seek the help of reliable professionals in preparing a person for the complex world of the car and traffic. It's not enough for today's family/friends to learn as their parents did. The driving world they enter is far too intense to tackle without serious preparation.
Practice makes perfect, so when your driving instructor thinks you are ready, why not get more practice with family or a friend. Tips and hints for family and friends helping a person to learn to drive. More
Motorists will be allowed to drive on the hard shoulder of motorways during busy times, Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly has said.
FOLLOWING a successful trial on the M42, new ways of managing motorway traffic, including hard shoulder running, will be implemented soon.
She said that a more immediate way of cutting congestion was to let drivers use the hard shoulder on parts of the M1, M6, M62, M27, M4 and M5.
New Legislation – for new models of cars and vans from early 2011 and buses and lorries from the summer of 2012 – is aimed at bringing drivers in line with continental counterparts.
MOTORISTS in new cars will have to drive with dipped headlights on during the day even in midsummer under a “barmy” EU directive.
I know you don't believe it but it's true!
