Are motoring criminal records always fair?

Drinking and driving is NOT illegal in the UK. It is illegal to drive over the legal alcohol limit and as this changes dependent upon size, weight etc and no one is clear on what this limit is for them. People who go to the pub drink 5 pints and then try to drive home are a disgrace and deserve criticism. But many people are caught after being slightly over the limit (maybe drinking 2 small glasses of wine instead of 1 large glass) or simply driving the next day while they thought they were sober. It is also illegal to do more than 70 on a motorway (and speeding kills far more people each year than drink drivers) and yet I bet the same people who are so critical on here have done this at some point. I agree with the ban for doing it, but the criminal record is when otherwise hard working, solid, taxpaying citizens get ruined as people and then cannot find employment even when they get their license back and I have seen people become suicidal from it.

Any good books on how to make an engine?

In answer to the "speed kills" debate. Inappropriate speed kills. In the wrong place (outside a school), at the wrong time and in the wrong conditions. That is what makes speed dangerous.

I am thinking about buying a Prius or some other hybred car. Replacing batteries seems very expensive. ?

In saying that, you are more likely to be seriously hurt or killed if you car has a mechanical failure (eg a blowout) at high speed. But ignoring mechanical failures which cannot be expected in any circumstances, speed is not the killer.

Question on renting a car...?

Driving with undue care and attention is the biggest killer. When the child runs out into the street and the driver doesn't see them because he's not paying attention. That is what is dangerous. We are all guilty of it, so don't start on about that as well.

How do you remove a car dealership logo from you car?

Speed doesn't kill. That's just simplistic. The misuse of speed kills. Too many people are paranoid about the emotive word 'speed'. I drive at over 170mph on occasions where it's legal to do so. So far, I haven't killed anyone. Frankly, I haven't seen anyone. I'm alone on the circuit. Even in Germany where I can drive at speeds well over our pitiful 70mph I don't recollect killing anyone. It's time intelligent people took a realistic view of road accidents and stop condemning all motorists just because some politician decided that an arbitrary speed limit was the be all and end all. 20 mph is sometimes too fast. 100 mph sometimes is not.

Why do people hate you?

Well I've been driving for a few weeks as I've only just passed my test
And I haven't a clue what the legal limit is
So I don't drink at all if I have to drive the next day.
I'd love to be able to know what is the safe limit and what I can drink safely
Can you believe that we are not taught this during driving lessons,
We are taught how to check oil and air
But not alcohol limits
Priorities me thinks !!

Necktie - over or under seatbelts?

Feel better now? Anyway, I agree that "Speed Kills" is far too simplistic. It's the WRONG speed in the WRONG circumstances that kills.

Do you drive differently around police ?

Even 20mph past our school when the kids come out is downright dangerous, albeit legal, whereas well over 100mph in a good car on a deserted autobahn is easily achievable, safe, and, depending on the road, legal too!
