  9. Electric cars

    All the hype is about electric cars,here is a thought,where is all the electricity going to come from to charge them. More nuclear power stations or coal fired whatever. Also where will goverment make their money from? Free tax,so nothing there.Maybe they will put a tax on electricity in place of fuel tax,how the hell will that work.

  12. 80 year driving ban

    A student has been banned from the UK's roads for 80 years after leading police on a dramatic chase - with a car full of passengers. Mohammed Ahson, 20, was hit with the huge ban - thought to be one of the longest ever imposed - following the pursuit in February this year. He was considered a threat to others after the vehicle sped around a corner and ploughed into a marble bench outside Salford University in Greater Manchester. Astonishing footage shows the car careering round the corner - with police hot on its trail - before the horror smash in the early hours of the morning. The blue lights of the police cars then make their way round the corner as smoke billows from the vehicle. Ahsan, from Coventry, failed to stop for police because there were six people in the car, more than legally allowed, the Coventry Telegraph reports. He was summoned to court and found guilty on September 1 for dangerous driving at Manchester Magistrates’ Court. Ahsan was handed a 16-week prison sentence, suspended for a year, fines and disqualified from driving for 80 years. This means he will most likely never drive again in his lifetime. PC Matt Picton of Greater Manchester Police, said: “This driver panicked after having too many passengers in his vehicle. He made a choice not to stop for the police and drive dangerously. "There is never any excuse for this standard of driving and we will always use the full force of the law to prosecute these people to rid them from our roads. “Too many people die from people driving dangerous and its totally unacceptable.” The driver and front seat passenger suffered minor injuries and were taken to hospital, Manchester Evening News reported. Four other passengers also in the car suffered from bumps and bruises. Effective lifetime bans from the roads are rare but can be imposed if the courts consider the driver to be a threat to others. PC Picton told the newspaper it is not the first 80 year ban he has seen and explained it was a “block ban”. It is understood drivers who are handed the ban will not remain disqualified for the whole 80 years if they pass an extended test.

  19. Car finance: the fast lane to debt? A visit to the car showrooms around north London gives a stark illustration of how British consumers have driven themselves almost £60bn into the red. Seemingly cheap financing deals offer the opportunity to drive away a brand new car less than two weeks from signing on the dotted line. There can be little or no deposit, while monthly payments from as little as £100 can stretch the bill over a two- to four-year period. While credit cards and personal loans make up the bulk of a £200bn debt mountain accumulated by British consumers, car finance has seen the fastest expansion. The second most expensive purchase in the majority of people’s lives, after buying a home, is now as simple as taking out a new mobile phone contract. There is no suggestion the sales practices are illegal or that any rules have been broken, yet they illustrate a significant shift in the way cars are bought in the UK. Salespeople at three dealerships visited by the Guardian offered vehicles on the road with little or no deposit. One suggested a £1,000 downpayment to secure a 1.5l Mini Cooper, with a top speed of 127mph, which could be refunded when the car was collected from the showroom a few days later. Deposits can even be paid for by credit card, adding to the debt pile. Two dealerships offered to contribute to the deposit. A Volkswagen showroom offered £1,000 off the £3,500 suggested deposit on a 1.4l Golf TSI. When asked why, the salesman said it was because the finance package was put together by the German manufacturer’s own credit lending arm to encourage sales.
  20. Whats yours?

    Whats yours? What vehicles do you own at present? At moment i dont have an older vehical,hopefully this will change in near future,would like a Jaguar xj40 or similar,but finances are poor for now so this may well have to wait.
  21. Electric vehicles?

    Electric vehicles? Will you be swwitching to an electric car in future,do you think that it is the way ahead. Not so sure myself,can see major problems ahead. What happens if you run of power,no just going and getting can of petrol,you need your vehicle to be transported somewhere to be charged up,this is not really a realistic proposition as far as i can see bearing in mind that range is limited anyway.
