Re: 5 years this year

Re: Traffic Sign Recognition - Predermined Time and Distance

I have noticed that side street signs can sometimes "catch you out" but its not the end of the world, now when I know when its likely to happen I cancel then re-apply, but it's not often enough to cause concern, after all there's no such thing as perfection.

I opted for the Honda fitted one to e...
