    Mister Paul, can I summarise?

    Certain people here appear to have entire paragraphs saved on their computer that they regurgitate on demand. You can see it in practically every rabid thread about cars.

    You're one of these people, along with Rothbrook, Tourist Tony, Jaded, and now Cunobelin who has managed to utterly ignore the last reply I gave him, possibly in the vain hope that nobody noticed he didn't know what he was talking about.

    Talk about trolling all you like, you all love it. You'd have nothing to do if places like PH and Safespeed didn't exist. I find it hard to believe that <b>any</b> of you own or ride a bike, none of you appear to know what the real problems for cyclists are.

    Personally I think none of you have the slightest clue what you're talking about other than what you've managed to find on Google. But thats fine, I'm sure you'll all be smiling happily in hospital after the driver doing 19mph clouts you while turning left. Or perhaps it will be a pedestrian who blithely wonders into the road because "20mph is safer than 30mph" and now no longer needs to look out for his own safety. After all, nobody teaches the green cross code any more, they don't have to, because its not their responsibility.

    All of you, do yourself a big favour - go and talk to some people in real life who know a thing or two about road safety - because you all need some real life lesssons on the subject.

    Welcome to the forum....

    An interesting conclusion...

    I am an external examiner for two Universities. Believe me - invalid conditions, or misconduct by an examiner is grounds for revoking a result or changing the level of a pass. It is called a "professional standard".

    Students have had entire course results revoked and "sent down" when later evidence has cast doubt upon results.

    So will you support answering the challenge and repeating the claims to the IAM that he was encouraged to speed during the test, thus invalidating the test procedure and asking their opinion about the validity?

    What invalid conditions or misconduct do you refer to?
    The IAM is not a university nor are there any pecuniary benefits to be gained from being a member.
    Imagine that you are driving down a hill within the promulgated limits .There are numerous vehicles travelling in the opposite direction up the hill.
    You look in your rear view mirror and notice that an HGV driver is flashing his lights and gaining ground on you at an abnormal rate.
    What do you do. Stay within the speed limit or accelerate to a speed in excess of the legal limit in order to minimise the risk of him either having to overtake you or run into the back of you?
    Safe driving is as much to do with circumstances and common sense as blind adherence to the law at any cost.
    If as cretin says there was a point in his test when ignoring the limit was considered the safer option then the examiner would have noted this and not penalised him.

    As for the argument about 20mph limits, nothing of yours that I have read over the last few months has demonstrated that you have anything but an unwavering belief in your own opinions and superiority - and therefore I simply will not waste my time helping you to inflate your ego. You believe in a world where responsibility should be abrogated to the state. I believe in a world where responsibility should be assumed by the individual.

    You might as well say that those who choose motorbikes have as much 'right to safety' as those who choose cars.

    Or

    That is what needs to be clarified.

    Justto diverge slightly....

    We have a claim that speeding is "back of the manual" and that speeding was encouraged, and acceptable for advanced drivers.

    This would fit in well with the work of LOnero et al who showed that in some cases the lessons are deliberately or unconciously misinterpreted and in an evaluation of the effectiveness of some drivers who had undergone advanced driving assessment that
    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">
    These evaluations suggest that raising levels of driving skill does not necessarily reduce crashes. In some cases car handling training is actually associated with a higher crash risk<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    This was conformed by later work (Naatanen and Summala) that in some drivers advanced traiing was ineffective unless certin motivational problems were addressed:
    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">However, it is reasonably clear that practical safety benefits will only occur if these programs are coordinated with motivational influences. Otherwise, there is a clear danger that, "...increased skills raise the level of aspiration in driving (higher speed, more frequent overtaking, smaller margins of safety, etc.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    Now which "incarnation" will respond to this, or do we need another new one?

    Having done and passed the IAM test, part of the training included warnings that the examiners were serving police officers, and although off-duty would take a very dim view of <u>any</u> infringement of the law.

    "Speed limits must be obeyed and any breach of law during your advanced driving test will result in failure" IAM Manual

    "Speed restrictions are limits, not targets." IAM Manual

    Cretin you say you passed the IAM test, try reading the section on speed in the manual

    The IAM test is about increased observation and skill, BUT does nothing to address poor attitude to other road users apart from being able to drive at the required standard for 60 - 90 mins.

    slowfen - For your interest

    This is a frequent claim by pro-speeding "visitors" that they were allowed to speed during the test and that their instructors encourage speeding because it is safer. Now they are advanced rivers they should be able to speed with impunity. A case where the value of the test is devalued in the eyes of the public.

    The IAM stated in a previous case that they would investigate such claims, and if the claims were true would suspend and retrain the Examiner and possibly require the test to be retaken. Hence the "Challenge",

    We're in agreement here, then.

    That is the point of SSimoncretin's attempted troll earlier about policemen exceeding the limit when on a shout---they are trained, etc, and it is seen as safe; I (SSimoncretin) have an IAM badge so speeding must be safe for me as well.

    You're quite thick, aren't you? Not a clue about the difference between momentum and kinetic energy? Or what actually causes injury?

    I'm still waiting. Show us all where I said the above. Go on Cunobelin, do it.

    You present yourself as an advanced driver and that because of your IAM Accreditation, the following quotes can be accepted as indicative of your attitudes and claims:

    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">I should tell you that on my advanced driving exam, I did not adhere to the speed limit. <b>In fact I broke it many times, yet still passed because my driving was to an acceptable standard.</b> The examiner was a retired police advanced driver and mentioned the speed limit only in passing, and without any critisism.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">In fact while on the test I came across a peculiar speed limit on a motorway slip road - the examiner told me that I was entirely correct to ignore it<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">In advanced driving, speed limits are pretty much at the back of the manual. <hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">I don't really feel any need whatsoever to exceed the speed limit. I just don't pay it much attention, since it has little relevance to my safety as a driver.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    The IAM clearly states that:
    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"><b>Any excessive speed above the statutory speed limit</b>, or the use of speed inappropriate for the circumstances regardless of any limit is dangerous and unacceptable. It must be remembered that speed limits are exactly that. Limits - not targets. <b>Advanced drivers use their skill and awareness to decide when they should impose their own restraints, below the statutory speed limits depending on the circumstances</b>.<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">


    Your claims for the IAM, your "advanced driving technique" and your test are in direct contravention of their statement, now are you saying taht you are wrong, or that you are wrong?

    THe fact still remains that for some reason you are reluctant to ask the IAM aboutthe conduct of your test and its validity, why will you not do so if you are so confident about it?

    But you said that a statement was made. Where did I make that statement?

    The answer is that I didn't, and once again <b>you made it up</b>.

    You are also aware that the IAM is not the only advanced driving organisation aren't you? You think that I've only taken the one? What advanced qualifications do you hold Cunobelin?
