Hi MaFt,

Have just downloaded the file as above, unzipped it and .....NO FILE ATTACHED, just Help/Release/Licence.

Is this a new type of "hidden" file, if so any idea how to open it?

I have downloaded this again this morning on a different computer and the file is complete.

MaFt Was the file "missing" and since been added, or was it just me going nuts?

Thanks MaFt, I thought I was cracking up, as I always refresh, so sure it wasn't an old file. :D

Next time I won't be so hasty. 8)

Hi MaFt,

Would it be a lot of work to add Red Lights and the Accident Blackspots to the DS database?

If others say the Black Spots aren't worth having then so be it, but i find it makes me more aware in "Dodgy" areas and as the DS unit is capable of using them it must be worth having.

As the Black Spot locations are already in the DS database, maybe they can be copied over to the pgpsw database.

Hope this wouldn't be too much hard work for you.

I have always disagreed with red light camera warnings, for the obvious reasons. And before anyone comments yes I do speed.

Accident black spots is a sensible suggestion

Whilst I would agree with you that those stupid enough to run lights deserve little sympathy, I would like to see them included in a database if only for the deterent effect they also have. Knowing where speed camera are make us slow down in areas regarded to have high accident rates. (?able I know). Alerts to mobile camera sites makes us aware of the risk we take if tempted to floor-it in any given area, open road or in built up areas heightening your alertness if nothing else. So why not a warning at traffic lights that says: if you risk it you deserve it, surely it can only add to the deterent factor rather than given encouragement and at least make the driver think twice before leaving it to late to stop! But I also believe that there are incidents where you can possibly be a victim of red lights, especially in unfamiliar areas.

I went to Swansea yesterday. What a nightmare place this has turned into. I was last there some years ago and my god has it changed. Its like trying to find your way through a maze of signs, road markings and complicated junctions. On top of that I had the Pogo telling me to turn one way of another whilst I wasn't sure I could believe it or not as poor old Pogo was not behaving at all well yesterday.

I have never jumped a red light in my life and will do all I can to keep it that way, HOWEVER when driving in London (same for all big cities) the pathetic pace often moved, means sometimes only one or two cars can get through lights before they change.

This leaves the motorist scrambling for space (sometimes only a car length) between the lights trying to get to the otherside, with additionally escaping restricted yellow boxes between the lights, with even more cameras, on top of this is the red light camera behind, desperate to take his/hers picture if they can't escape the turmoil.

Driving anywhere these days is stressful, big brother is watching every move to part you with your hard earned cash, sometimes already taxed twice due to the additional stealth taxes.

The red light database already exists and unlike speed cameras doesn't change very much, so why can't we add the extra info onto the database, we need to help our stressful existance, to what was once enjoyable driving.

There will always be opposition to the subject, but the high mileage motorists will be thankful for the extra info whilst driving, and the other smaller mileage driver's probally won't go far enough for it to count.

Hi GJF,

Hi or low mileage its certainly very stressful out there. The government and councils seem obsessed in creating obstacles to driving where ever you go today. Locally it seems you encounter months of road disruption whilst councils spend god knows how much recreating simple road junctions into complicated stone built obstacles etc, etc, whilst many of our main roads continue to crumble no wonder then that the poor old motorist is being constantly targetted. Its not unlike the 60's when architects knocked down many fine old buildings just to replace them with concrete ones, its only ever in retrospect that we recognise the damage been done. Government harp on about better public transport links, they have already made this worse since coming into power. By the time I receive my old age pension I'm bound to be fined for exceeding the speed limit in my wheelchair!

What makes you think you will get away with that easy!

I've heard that the Goverment will be going for all disabled vehicles next,
with a black box tracker going on first, then "pay as you go" mileage, speed limits (3mph) and penalty points for running over other peoples feet.

The only good thing is that wheelchairs will also have to conform to the Highway Code - I suppose looking on the bright side, at least as pedestrians, you won't get mown down at your local market or in the pedestrian High St.

Just to be non-conformist pensioners we will have to organise wheelchair rallys, with walkway racing.
