    main reason for electronic parking brake is space saving on the center console and ergonomic design. People want more storage and device charging space.

    I came to a massive factor that Gareth almost hit with electronic handbreak. As we all know for years have been getting lighter due to keeping efficiency up for regulations globally. When you look at the weight of a mechanical over electronic handbreak the weight saving is massive. Hence electronic handbreaks.

    On the creeping forward at lights, sometimes its to stop the stupid auto start/stop. Admittedly I've done it a few times when I didn't want to disable the start/stop, but I knew the lights were going to change in a few seconds, so I stop a little short of the lights (less than a car length) and creep forward a bit.

    I once stopped at a red light and sat there watching the lights for the roads to watch them change so I knew when I could go, they turned red meaning mine where going to change so I floored it not realising mine were still red too, got about 150m before I realised I messed up, luckily there wasn't anyone else about at the time, I've also pulled up to green lights and stopped, I think Gareth has changed and its not in a good way, JLR aren't the best and it's annoying how hard he's trying to convince us

    Driving through red lights most do at some point in life. It's a minor lapse in concentration. Providing no-one is hurt it's a relatively minor offense but due to many many driving laws you can get written up for about 4 sperate offenses which is a piss take.

    This may offend most guys, but being an avid listener & follower of Scotty Kilmer, the straight forward answer to why Electronic parking brakes are becoming increasingly popular amongst car makers, it's cheaper to manufacture and the bean counters push it. Also if a Electronic parking brake fails it is more expensive to fix as well as it involves sensors.

And it's extra stressful for me as I never start from the handbrake - I always rely on my reflex on pedals

    Overtaking cyclists is the biggest part of dangerous driving these days - you need to give them at least 1.5 metres: very few drivers do but remember if it goes wrong and you kill, recent court cases have proved you are guilty of dangerous driving not driving without due care and you will likely be jailed for it........

    Back in January there were temporary lights set up and it was snowing. My lights were on red and I had a car sitting behind me. At the other end were three cars waiting and I could see the red light reflecting on the front of the car at the other end. Eventually after about two minutes I put on my hazards and went through the red. I stopped at the other end and explained to the guy in front that there was snow on the sensor and I watched in my mirror as the three cars also went through the red. If you do it slowly and with due care then it shouldn't be an issue.

We stop our van for 2 minutes and you have people honking, screaming and shouting at you.
