comment Which digits should I eliminate when giving my number to foreign travellers so as to not confuse them?
YES!!! So many times I've seen taxis with local numbers in small cities (such as 5-55-55) and there was no chance I'd ever dial that from my cell phone without knowing which 5 or six number of local code I also need.

comment Traveling with a lot of luggage at Heathrow - getting help?
@BurhanKhalid To me obtaining a cart sounds like a lot of help compared to carrying five suitcases on my own.

comment How to remove airlines/security tag stickers from suitcases?
@pnuts: Containing some amounts of oil does not necessarily make something suitable for lubrication. Other components matter too.

I'd be cautious about WD-40 - it contains some amounts of oil and oil can be very bad for plastics.

comment If you're speeding by 20, why's it less hassle to ticket for 10 or 15?
I heard long ago that if the officer fails to appear in court for whatever reason then the court rules in favor of the driver. And who knows what the reason might be - perhaps he will have to work on some serious accident and simply have no time to appear in court. If that's true it means that if the officer goes for something that doesn't require a court appearance then the driver is guaranteed to be punished but if he goes for something that requires a court appearance then there's a chance that there's no punishment. For minor offenses punishment guarantee is believed to be the key factor.
