March 2014 - New Jedi Training Mini!

BMW Mini One D with the latest very smooth BMW designed 1.6 litre diesel engine. All the usual refinements like climate control, power steering, 6 speed manual gearbox. 90BHP and only 99g/km CO2 making this car one of the least CO2 polluting cars available today. All pupils are reporting it drives even nicer than the last one! I'm keeping the old Mini cooper as a backup car.

Roadhawk HD video surveillance of road ahead (not of pupil) and separate rear facing camera (to monitor traffic at rear) records everything going on around car at all times (except driving tests). Records not only HD video but G-forces acting on car and GPS co-ordinates via Google maps. This is black box technology that also enables pupils to relive their lessons again at home as it can be E-mailed (or put on CD or SD card) to them if they wish.

Although as drivers we may strive to adhere to the law - and 99.99% of the time it's a safe environment there are times when other drivers like to break it and I like to have video evidence that will prove I or any of my pupils are in the right!

Don't worry though as statistically you are very safe in a dual controlled driving school car, and accidents are a very rare occurrence!

Here are a few examples of the Roadhawk in action - capturing some recent bad driving in Ilfracombe. If YouTube will allow they can be viewed in HD 1080P:-



On a lesson (on roundabouts) today we come to a roundabout and are forced to stop when a white caravan speeds onto it without slowing or giving way! Happens just as I'm giving the instruction to check the mirrors on the left which is why we saw it coming. I leaned over and gave him gave him a beep! (to warn of our presence) but they were oblivious! Just shows the importance of constant awareness, mirror use and observation even when we have the right of way!



Driving along St James Place then turned right and met this driver going the wrong way along this one way street - he seemed oblivious!




Whilst on a driving lesson driving down New Barnstaple road on which we have priority a taxi approaches fast from the left (Highfield road) to a STOP junction. He neither attempts to either stop or look and I have to quickly force our car over to the other side of the road to avoid him. Silver Skoda WJ62 NPG
