  1. They might park them in clear sight, but with the long lens on the cameras, they will have the speed recorded long before most will spot the van as they come over the crest into sight.
  2. I have both a cadac Chef and a Cadac 2 cook. I run both from the LP van supply (propane) or from a blue butane bottle with it's own bottle mounted regulator. Can't beat them in my opinion
  3. RIDDOR - Reporting of Injuries, Disease and Dangerous Occurences I think you may be confusing legislation, as has been said, it is for the reporting of injuries etc at work
  4. Not to be pedantic, but water weighs about 1 kg per litre. 20 gallons is aproximately 90 litres, so that would be 90kg ... Is your car powered by some unknown but very heavy fuel Commander?

    I hope you always chose 'less than'....Don't want to be giving the public the wrong impression. Afterall they dont know it's a 'civvie' driving it and just assume it's the Police rushing to get to the next tea stop!
  6. Buy her some 'Old Lady' gin in one of the French supermarkets and then hide behind something solid!
  7. The law refers to 'mobility scooters' as invalid carriages (class 2 or class 3) and these are subject to very specific regulations including amongst other things, who can use them, the speed they can do on pavements and on the road and even when they are prohibited from the road! I have heard nothing to suggest anyone is considering banning their use. As Mr Plod has said, the 'toy' scooters with two or three wheels are classified as mechanically propelled vehicles. Since the early days of vehicles the various Road traffic Acts have defined classification of vehicles, and as has been rightly pointed out these laws were passed by politicians. What is not happening is politicians of today trying to outlaw electric 'toy' scooters.. (They have no need to do so as they are already outlawed)
  8. Another vote for camp Eure at Pont de l'Arche. Easy to find, good access and clean facilities
  9. Taxation classes vary from the RTA definitions for some reason, in fact I believe the MH would be classed as a heavy motorcar for RTA purposed in that unladen it weighs more than 2050kg
  10. Bearing in mind that caravan manufacturers will often quote the max inflation pressure for the tyre, and it is not unknown for the same pressure to be quoted across a range of weights. An industry advice web calculator can be found here https://www.tyresafe.org/check-your-pressures/caravan-pressure-calculator/ All you need to do is input the MTPLM and select the tyre size/ load index and you will get a reasonably accurate inflation pressure.
  11. The website is here which states that reception is open till 7.00pm http://www.auxcygnesdopale.fr/en/activities-and-services/
  12. Unfortunately, anywhere on the East Coast is going to be at least two and a half hours from Southport, so you will not be gaining anything by relocating to that coast.
  13. About 23 miles further on at Blangy sur Bresle is a campsite 'Camping aux Cygnes d'Opale' I have used a couple of times. It is easy to get to and there is a Super U with a fuel station about a mile away (other side of the motorway from the site. I would recomend it rather than spending the night at an aire.
  14. My old TomTom will still work but it needs to be taken outdoors for about 3 or 4 minutes and shown the sky so it knows where to look for satellites. Once it finds them it will work in the car with no problems.
  15. Can you turn it on with your fob? - obviously you can turn it off via the fob and if so is it possible that you are catching the button on the fob from time to time thus turning it on.
