I've never paid attention to this, but it is a "thing". When you buy tyres in the UK, they have a fuel rating of between 'E' (worst) to 'A' (best).


Yeah, I've never had those fuel economy tires, but apparently they can save you quite a bit on fuel, not sure if that's your issue mind.

Yeah... it was being pushed as 'tricky', but it's surely very obvious. N1FFF jokes aside.

I think its the same as all of those facebook "only geniuses can work this out" questions. They attempt to make a simple question difficult by adding basic obfuscation so bored housewives feel clever.

In this case they have attempted to mask a curved road as a t-junction. Mind blowing.

It is obvious who has right of way. If you don't know, you shouldn't be driving.

For anyone who is unsure, it is the blue car. Regardless of where the blue car is coming from.

There's a junction exactly like that where I live, and it confuses the strawberry float out of people.

Agree. It might appear tricky at first but it's not.

Who was at fault GRcade?

Sorry I can't embedd it, on my phone

I say it's the guy who hits the cop, my friend says it is the cop.

My argument is that the cop is signalling and you're not supposed to pass like 8 cars at once when overtaking, if this guy had passed just 1 car at a time he would have seen the signal lights.

My friend says it's the cop because he didn't check his mirrors for people trying to pass him.

Guy who hit cop was at fault. Wrong side of road, dangerous maneuvre, not reading traffic properly, failing to react. All his fault. Police not culpable, its reasonable to assume he would not expect traffic flowing at him from the inside, completely fairly.

You should never overtake on the inside edge of a junction anyway.

How can someone think that is anybody's fault apart from the guy overtaking?
