I think I will be actually getting more fun from EV when I get it, good excuse to use horn more now safety feature!The AA says it will be dangerous as cyclists won't hear EVs coming up behind them. Speechless. As a cyclist I use this amazing thing called a mirror, and wind noise tends to wipe out most car or bus noise anyway.
That'll be the "Plan" part of the subject..Clegg did NOT announce EVs being allowed to use bus lanes, or free parking for EVs. The scheme he announced is looking for between two and four cities across the UK to be 'flagship cities' giving incentives to ULEVs which may include use of bus lanes within the city and special parking in some areas.
LOL! I did that once and I even started to try to put forward reasoned arguments to counter some of the narrow-mindedness... waste of time trying to convince them BUT it does get the facts out there even if no one there believes them... they will one day and that is why it is worth putting the realities to them... and taking the flack
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!If they really wanted to show commitment to electric vehicles why not replace all ministerial cars for tootling around westminster with Leafs, lead by example. Keep the jags for longer distance drives but there is no reason why the PM cannot use a leaf for the 500m drive from No10 to the houses of parliament.
Lead by example people
Two mistakes there. Visiting the Daily Mail, and most importantly, reading the comments on ANY news site, ESPECIALLY the Daily Mail (I know I know, but let's just call it a "news" site for the sake of this point).
As long as abide by the highway code and indicate before swerving around parked vehicles then no more dangerous... its when people expect to be warned where everyone else is on the road instead of checking, thats where the danger lies!The AA says it will be dangerous as cyclists won't hear EVs coming up behind them.
