Sounds to me like you're being a touch on the irrational side. you had a good, legitimate excuse for reversing: it was unsafe to rejoin the motor way from a stand still. I would have done the same.
The only way they would have caught you would be live streaming cameras (i've been caught on bus lanes with these damn things before!), so the man on the other end of the camera would have seen why you did what you did.
i'm sure it will be fine, if not, you have adequate grounds to contest it - but it is massively improbable it will come to this.
The research environment has a way of making very clever people feel very inadequate. It's not right, but that's the way it is.
This is the dark, hidden underbelly of universities as a working environment. On the surface, universities (research environments in general) are nice, happy, relaxed, laid back places to work. Underneath, they are soul destroying working environments.
Research is slow, it takes time to accumulate knowledge, skills, expertise, awesomeness - you can't expect to get from phd to professor from a single essay

That's really iritating. My family do that too. They say things like "you've had 4 years to do it, how can you be struggling to get it done?" It's irritating how they behave as if they get it, they don't!
The other one that gets me is when people how my 'course' is going - a PhD isn't a bloody 'course'
Photos - definatley
Simplified cartoons/outline drawings - definately
Clip art - context and picture dependent. Cartoons that are too cartoony (e.g. (robin) thanks mods) are absolutely fine in my book, but only if used in moderation.
there's a risk of overdoing it with clip art, but this isn't a problem for photos and ouline drawings, for me.
Simplicity is the key. I love 'ingesting' new info when it is in nice, manageable chunks - humans like that sort of thing. When it is dumbed down and simple, i don't ever feel the presenter is showing that they are really thick, i feel good that i am learning something and i am able to keep up.
Plus, bucket loads of confidence and an award winning smile help :-)
