60kW is on the high side. But that's just mechanical energy (which
eventually turns to heat). The total heat output from burning the
fuel is three times that.

All a cars energy comes from burning fuel and all energy becomes
heat.

Indeed. So values are 120kW (3x30, not 3x60) running and 15kW (3x5)
idling.


Police are now offering a free car ventilation service!
I am sure M'lud Nuglet would say that this is "criminal damage" in
Nugentworld.

As a cyclist, if a car driver endangers MY life, can I use a D lock
to smash HIS window?


Only a silly cyclist would ask that sort of silly question.

Well he did try to jump through a lorry windscreen, so obviously the
balance of his mind is deeply disturbed.

Damaging a vehicle, where the damage is not accidental or consented to,
is a criminal offence in almost all circumstances. But there is a
defence against a statutory criminal damage charge, to the effect that
causing the damage is not a crime if it is necessary, or at least, in
the circumstances, reasonably believed to be necessary, in order to
prevent other loss or damage to something in immediate need of protection.

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1971/48/section/5

This and analogous provisions are relied upon by the forces of law and
order the world over when gaining access to premises and vehicles in an
emergency. Saving the life of an animal (especially a legally-defined
species such as a dog) in hot weather would easily qualify for that
defence in the UK.

Note that a police officer utilising this power (it isn't limited to
police officers, BTW) is acting judiciously, cautiously and impartially.
He isn't acting out of pique.

Yes he did do that. And for some very strange reason he told us all about
it. Seems that I actually got a mention in his book............. flattered
I'm sure.

Still using Wiki to pass yourself off as educated in the law, I see.

I smashed my neighbour's car window. He doesn't have a dog, I just don't like him.

Dunno - as a mental health patient I am now in receipt of £400 pm in PIP and our lass gets a carer's allowance - result!
