If I had an electric car I would get myself a wind generator for my back garden, presuming such an arrangement is feasible.   ZXZ

There's a tower block in Islington with a wind-turbine on it's roof.

The 12 metre high structure generates power for the lifts, lights, water pumps, CCTV and concierge area of Kestrel House, City Road, EC1.  And it is not the only one, the local council is actively promoting this "green" initiative.    Z**

great, have to drive to the supermarket everyday to charge it up  :P

until every parking space has a means to charge a car, I maintain electric cars are useless for the majority of people
imagine row upon row of terrace houses with cables stretching over the pavement  :rage:

Plug in electric cars move problems rather than solving them.
Scientists at the University of Illinois have just developed a Lithium battery that can reach 90% charged in just 2 minutes.

Has anyone in the area successfully pleaded not guilty to a speeding fine?
The reason I am asking for advice is because I received a letter last week which says I was doing 35 mph in a 30 limit. This was on Llanfair TH road in Abergele. I was going up the hill and could see the van from a long way. I was sure I was doing 28mph.
Does anyone know if it is possible to ask for the evidence before commiting to a court hearing?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

If you are a Member of a Motoring organisation such as AA or RAC and have legal cover speak to them.

If not then use a solicitor or do it yourself.  Plenty of advice available on the Internet, or the CAB may be able to help.

Traffic Lights on Conwy Rd, Llandudno

Why do these traffic lights as you are waiting to turn into the retail park coming from the links roundabout way change from green straight away only allowing two cars to go through, and then you are sat there ages waiting for the red to change, none of the other lights are the same only these ones!

FYI, this was raised by another forum user last year.

:rage:  Still not sure why the traffic lights exiting Mostyn Champneys only go on green for eight seconds causing long hold ups and exiting the other end is just as bad.  :rage:

I asked a bus driver this year as we waited fot the lights to change.  he said that Asda paid for the lights and that therefore they are weighted for Asda customers and against Conwy Road traffic. If this is the case it's terrible as there are huge snarl ups there.

 ;)This link proves that there is little interest in the problem,unless its the locals in Tudno ward that are the only people effected as if you live along or just off Maesdu rd it is us who have to use the Links roundabout 6 times a day,if you live in Penrhyn Bay or Craig y donits not such a problem as they have no need to use this road. D)One of Tudno wards County Clls does not drive so takes littleinterest in hold ups.
