Difficult to tell, and the second screen grab it's definitely heading for the wrong side of the road. At the end of the day, if there is a collision, and you are on the wrong side of the road, then you are most likely to get prosecuted for dangerous/careless.

Through looking at the vid I have identified the VW transporter and the owner and also exactly where it was filmed. Here is a screen grab from the BMWs point of view on that lane (as of 2011 ). On a lane only wide enough for 1 vehicle I would of thought that both get prosecuted for dangerous/careless driving neither are on the "wrong side of the road"

My uncle got knocked off his Honda 50 on his way home from work in the early seventies, A Yank on the wrong side of the road from U.S,A.F Upper Heyford. He spend 2 weeks in The old Radcliffe Infirmary and lost his big toe. he was pretty lucky to be alive. It was between Middleton Stony and Lower Heyford  (Just down the road from Croughton) .Ordinary G.I nothing special. G.I was shipped out before Police could do anything. It was pretty much accepted back then, that if a yank hit you that's what happened. seems some things never change. :\

Well there's a surprise.

US denies extradition request for Harry Dunn suspect

https://f7td5.app.goo.gl/qxP2AM

Bluff called, wonder what will happen next. Their lawyer said he would shut down all us bases, can't see that happening.

In the report on the radio this morning I was shocked to hear how many other similar incidents there have been involving US personnel in this type of accident in the UK .

It's clearly our fault for not changing all our road traffic signs and switching over to the other side  :rolleyes


As for the US refusing to implement the extradition request, that was not helped by Johnson publically saying that's what he expected.

Political intervention has put a stop to the legal process.  The American government has blocked this from even reaching the US courts.
 
It’s makes you think.  Here we are now breaking our ties with our European friends and looking towards Trump’s America for our future prosperity.

Back in the 70's I was told that within US bases in the UK, they drive on the right. Is that still the case now.

So, it appears Mrs Sacoolas is a former senior CIA officer...... and Raab didn't tell the family. It appears that their MP Leadsom (another cabinet member) didn't know either.

 Meanwhile it may be worth noting the case of Mike Lynch.
Quote
Lynch was the founder of a UK company quoted on the London Stock Exchange. Allegations of improper accounting in the $11bn sale of Autonomy to Hewlett-Packard in 2011 were investigated by the UK Serious Fraud Office, which decided there was insufficient evidence to bring charges, and Lynch has always denied any wrongdoing. Yet the DoJ wants to bring charges of fraud and conspiracy against Lynch relating to the deal.
It looks like there is a real probability of Lynch being extradited under the UK/US extradition arrangements introduced by Tony Bliar’s government in 2003.

So, looking at the title of this thread “How to get away with murder”


It would appear being a Scottish drug dealer is the best way.


4000 drug related deaths in the last 5 years


Police pursued Culpable Homicide on only 7 dealers


Only 5 went to court


With 0 convictions  :eek


That’s a pretty disturbing set of statistics.

Ride goes through the ULEZ zone. That could have been thought through a bit better!

Being a fair distance from London I don’t know too much about ULEZ.  Also, a bit too far for me to join in, but hopefully they’ll get a good turnout. 
 
Meanwhile the computer says I’d get wacked for £12.50 per day in the ULEZ zone on the old thou!  Foc me!

Yep, and it's 24/7 so no difference on a Saturday.
Actually, the FZS1000 qualifies for exemption, but you need to pay Yamaha UK £60 for a certificate to prove it. Probably not worth it for a one - off  :eek

It seems the embassy protest ride out has been postponed until Friday 1st May. That's not even the Bank Holiday. Bizarre!
