If Cars Were Chillies

DriveWrite is unwell. Even as I type this I am on the sick couch and feeling poorly. I have A COLD and cars are the last thing on my mind. My wife has offered to bring me hot beverages, paracetamol, even my testicles (if she can find them, she says) and if I feel that bad I should try childbirth etc, etc. You know how it goes. Sympathy? It ain’t in the lexicon. Continue reading

The Railway Network Eats Itself

Despite being a car driver first and foremost, I would from time to time like to use our railway network. The idea that I could travel a long distance, arrive refreshed and hire at car at the destination appeals to me, especially with our rotten, crowded roads. Sadly, there are too many reasons why I don’t. I’ll take the car every time. Continue reading

Is It The End For The DSLR Camera?

In the years since digital imaging swamped film photography, the amateur photograph has ceased to be about memories and is more about the ‘now’. The digital world is now swamped with pics which highlight the truth that although the technology has improved beyond our wildest dreams the ability of many people to make a decent snap is still in question, especially when selling a car where any old pic would seem to do.

Leave It To The Drivers

There is a large and verdant merry-go-round on the outskirts of the town of Swindon, Wiltshire, called the Mannington Roundabout. It is a very busy intersection that plays host to a high level of traffic throughout much of the day. Continue reading

The Fastest Cars Of 2017

2017 is the year of the ultimate Speed freak. Gone are the days when 200 mph was the holy grail of motoring. Today there are many cars which have breached this once impossible threshold. Indeed, some of the fastest cars of 2017 completely obliterate 200 mph. It seems 2017 has thrown up a new unreachable target, the lords of asphalt are now on a mission to create a mind boggling 300 mph, road legal car. Continue reading

Cycling vs Driving Lament: It’s Not Getting Better

As a motorist and car owner I am acutely aware of all the possible infractions that a driver can be had up in front of The Beak for. Also, traps abound: near to me, just around a blind corner, what appears to be a local urban road suddenly turns into a ‘bus only’ lane for a distance of about one hundred metres. The signage is low and often obscured by parked cars. Locals are aware of this piece of council vindictiveness but strangers are not. A couple of the good chaps who bring press vehicles to me, including the poor innocent who brought me the Ford Fiesta (here), have fallen foul recently. Continue reading

Why The Grand Transport Plan Won’t Work

If I could I would travel on my long distance trips by train. It makes sense: it’s the ideal form of transport, someone else does the driving and I can have a snooze and arrive refreshed at my destination ready for action. I also would not have to drive many, many miles on Britain’s rotten roads, senses alert for the next hair-raising close call from the next idiot driver. I could do this: Continue reading

The Way Car Journalists Were

Why writers & journalists have it easy today… In general, car manufacturers are very generous to motoring journalists and it is appreciated. Scribes and snappers are invited to events and launches, all, or at least most, expenses paid. Recently, I was asked to attend, with VIP status, a prestigious motor racing event, for example. Very nice. Certainly the work can be demanding at times but you can’t fault the arrangements. Continue reading

Cars & Motoring: Help Not Hinder

Whatever the result of June’s exciting general election, the UK’s next government must, says the Freight Transport Association (FTA), support logistics businesses to enable them to reduce vehicle emissions and cope with the transition to Clean Air Zone regulations. Continue reading
