Hit and run

I was involved in a hit and run last June 2012, slow moving traffic when a young driver not concentrating rear-end me at 10-15mph.  He left in a hurry without stopping.  Luckily I could follow to were the driver dumped his car. I called for police assistance and did not approach the driver, whilst on the phone to the police the drivers mate turns up to pick him up, so I give the police details of both cars, reg etc as they leave the dumped car.  The insurance process begins, but the car owner fails to respond to any correspondence, ...

    Liability disputed!!

    Hi All,Just a quick query regarding a collision I had two months ago.I was shunted from behind whilst stationary at a set of lights on a roundabout by a HGV. As I approached the lights, I could see that the HGV at the front of the queue in lane 1, had left quite a gap between itself and the solid white stop line at the lights. I proceeded to the lights in lane two, which was empty, and then signalled to move into lane 1, the lane I wanted to be in, in front of the HGV. I positioned ...

    Responsibility for highway repairs

    What do you do when the Highways Agency and local Council disagree about which one is responsible for a slip road that has a dangerous defect which would cause any biker a serious injury or death? For 5 months I have been 'bounced' from one t'other - each says the other is responsible and neither will do anything about the defect?

    Claiming whiplash and damages from third party

    I had an accident in Summer and it seems its going to be 50-50. While the third party has claimed for whiplash and damages despite being in a car and it being a low speed collision and( it was I who fell down) I havent claimed for anything. I was hoping that there wouldn't be any claim but they decided to go for it. My insurance company has advised me to write to third partys insurer to claim for any damages and whiplash. How do I go about doing that? I didn't even see a GP because at that time it ...

    how many bikes upset a radar ?

    A police officer with a hand held speed gun stopped me and claimed I was doing 88mph in a 60 zone, on a wide country lane. I was at the front of a group of 6 bikers.The traffic officer said I was doing 88mph and showed me this on his radar gun, I don't think I/we were doing 88mph. I know that just after the place I/we were stopped is a very tight bend and had this in mind. The officer stepped in the middle of the road and just gestured for me to stop, which we ALL did together, ...

    B Raods and Learners

    Just wanted to get your views on this.  My son just passed his CBT and only has a general knowledge and basic handling skills.  The course had him doing some pretty scary b roads over the moors - he came off and injured his neck pretty bad.  Should the instructors be doing such roads to pass a mod 1 and mod 2. Thanks Paul
