I could change my opinion, but then we'd both be wrong.

Hahahaha the fact that he thought that was a sensible move proves that the car has vastly more intelligence than him so was probably in more control then he ever could be

Oh dear, tip of the iceberg methinks. I'm rich and i can do what i want. Lets hope it teaches others a valuable lesson.
Treat everything in life the way a dog would- if you can't eat it or foc it, forget it.

Bhavesh Patel in the Tesla gets a driving ban but this driver is still legally on the road despite amassing an incredible 62 penalty points on his licence!....


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-39053658



Or how about this one. 116 mph on the A55 with 6 points already on the licence and no driving ban....

 It's one rule for one and one for another :rolleyes

Thanks for addressing me directly. Shame, OTT is debatable, yet just stating what you'd observe in any given city around the country. :thumbup

Bang on, fella! I can think of / frequently see numerous drivers that should only be allowed to sit in the passenger seat of a Tesla, with a stroppy Rotweiler in the driver's seat, trained to bite them if they ever attempt to use the controls...

...either that or just ban me!  :b Well my "submission" was up for about a week before being dropped - so where were you? :)

It's double standards (or just favouritism) as there's ALOT of threads (for example "3 word story") filled with vulgar language frequent sexual references and profanity, yet that doesn't get touched - stays there for months/years. Visible to non-members too, just browsing. Yet my 1 sentence gets jettisoned to Room 101. lol.

There's also the naughty corner section of the site, where you can get away with saying anything.....

Well I will satisfy your intrigue midden, I was merely commenting on an aspect of our Great British "ethnic enrichment" that is only getting worse... [COUGH] ...CORRECTION, becoming ever more noticeable. :) Was making a generalisation. ;)
