Charter of uk.rec.driving

(Not Moderated)

The purpose of this group is the discussion of all aspects of non-professional motorised vehicle driving including, but not exhaustively, good places for 'fun' drives, driving skills, training and driving organisations such as the IAM, RoSPA & so forth, road safety, road law enforcement, general insurance issues and legal interpretation of driving law.

It is primarily concerned with driving within the UK, but comparisons with driving experiences and legislation in other countries are admissible.

Discussion of cars as related to transportation issues (integration, congestion, etc.) should take place in uk.transport. Discussion of cars as hardware should take place in uk.rec.cars.misc. It is unlikely that any topic will be sufficiently relevant to more than one of these three groups, so posters should think carefully before cross-posting between them.


Advertising is forbidden.

Binaries & Formatting

The posting of encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) is forbidden. A URL to such material on a web site may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make some common newsreaders comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.


Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their "postmaster" and/or Service Provider.
