    I read today in the Times about a pensioner driver who became exhausted and confused after losing his way on a road trip from Cheshire to Sussex last December. After about 12 hours on the road, driving up and down the M40 he gave up and stopped near Banbury, straddling lanes two and three...

    The A316 from Chiswick through Twickenham out of London is a road I use on average about once a week or fortnight. For many years it has had regularly spaced speed cameras - big yellow boxes clearly visible, mounted about 3m high pointed at the usual road markings of a series of parallel white...

    My aged father fancies one because he reads the Daily Mail and feels that evil asylum seekers, immigrants etc. wish to crash into him for cash. He requires a simple in car camera for Christmas this year from my mother. My mother has no clue what or where to buy one. Neither do I. In short, he...

    Now that the average speed cameras on the A9 have gone live, can anyone help me understand how they work? (Not the fact that the time you between cameras - that much I worked out for myself). Take the A9, for instance - as far as I knew, they always worked in pairs - Cam 1 clocks you, Cam 2...

    Hey all, I spent ages on here looking at how to fit a reversing camera and they all seemed to end up needing to pay a specialist to fit the camera. I eventually found a way to fit a camera myself. this small and badly written guide will hopefully help anyone struggling with it too although it...

    Just purchased myself one of these units. Car Audio Centre had them reduced down to around £600 from an original price of something like £1500, I managed to pick up a quality condition second hand one for £400. Not actually got my hands on the box yet but as far as the advert claims it came...

    Does anyone know the speed situation in Sicily? Do they have speed cameras that book you for overspeeding and send a fine to your house? What are the penalties like? Reason I'm asking is that I've just been on a weekend trip to Sicily with my own car (Alfa Mito 135 TCT). At first I followed...

    So driving along last night between south mimms and the m1 junction. Gantry changed to 50 and I duly obliged. Next gantry went down to 40 and with the wife and 2 kids getting rather flustered I seem to have been slow to slow down further. Looking in rear view there was about a dozen or more...

    I hate the A12 - simply because I think red light cameras should not be allowed in a 50mph zone considering how dangerous it is when somebody just slams their brakes on at 50. I was sitting in McDs today and noticed how short they were amber for - so next time around I got my phone out and...

    I think I can guess the answer to this but if speed cameras are not available with the Radionav why do I have greyed out on screen "Set speed cameras and high risk areas" and if I can how do I enable it?
