Would you keep your drivers licence?

A BBC article about an insurance company  arranging "driving tests" for experienced drivers found that three in four would fail. Fortunately I'm one of the best drivers around.  Wink

Number two followed quickly... I forgot to turn on my side lights on what was a wet and gloomy day.

Thought you had to use headlights, may explain why I see many cars on side lights

Indeed, I was under the impression there was such thing as "side lights", that they were actually called "parking lights" and that was their only use...when parked at night or poor visibility.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

You MUST use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced, generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres (328 feet). You may also use front or rear fog lights but you MUST switch them off when visibility improves (see Rule 236).

Problem is I don't usually carry a tape measure with me in the car.
