    The car driver was at fault to begin with, nearly knocking him off his bike then hitting an oncoming car. He won't do that again in a hurry !

      From later news, it appears the driver knew the guy on the bike and deliberately tried to knock him down as he belonged to a different street gang.:wallbanging::doh:

        Surely this has to be a good thing? Driving on a motorway for the first time is truly terrifying. I've been driving for 30 years but still remember that first journey :yikes:
        At least if they're getting some experience with a qualified instructor we'll all be safer :)
        I must confess my interest is personal, I have a son about to pass his test and one about to start lessons :rolleyespink:
        The thought of either of them on the roads :mute::love30::fingers crossed:

          Yes i am surprised its taken so long, driving on a motorway is far different to driving on normal roads/dual carriageways loose concentration/make a mistake and it could be fatal but they seem to think reversing round a corner is more important :wallbanging:

            Am still shocked at people not knowing how to merge onto a highway. Pedal to the metal, then when at pace, fit in. And so many don't get it, or want to go to the end before pulling in and slowing down everyone.
