Putting a Stop to Speeding

Putting a Stop to Speeding

​The introduction of the speed awareness course some fifteen years ago welcomed in a new era of dealing with speed limit non-compliance in the United Kingdom. The initiative aimed to teach people the where and why’s of speed limit enforcement rather than simply adding license points and issuing fines. While going back to school in this way is probably less than ideal for some people, there has been a positive uptake, with many people choosing to avoid the fines and go on the course instead. In general, drivers in the UK are fairly safe on the roads with one death... Read full article

Proposed Congestion Charge Changes to Look Out For

Proposed Congestion Charge Changes to Look Out For

​It’s always a blessing to have a company vehicle that you can utilise for personal use. Driving into Central London can prove more efficient than unexpected delays on national railways, although this does come at a price. If you’ve ever driven up into town during the week, you’d know the pain of paying £11.50 every time you pass into the congestion charge zone between 7am and 6pm. Transport for London (TFL) has announced plans to tighten the exemption for private hire vehicles (PHVs) from the Congestion Charge, with effect from April 8, 2019.... Read full article

Changes to Consider When Driving Abroad in a Company Car

Changes to Consider When Driving Abroad in a Company Car

​If you are someone who isn’t keen on flying abroad for your holidays, driving into Europe in a company car can be an enjoyable and diverse experience when compared to a traditional week-long beach holiday. Not only do many European countries drive on the opposite side of the road, but legislation and driving rules have changed dramatically in the last couple of months, especially in France. With Brexit being a huge talking point in recent years, driving on the continent may have a bigger effect on travel than you think. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 41% of people... Read full article

The Pothole Problem Plaguing the UK

The Pothole Problem Plaguing the UK

Poor weather conditions throughout the early section of 2018 have caused roads across the country to dilapidate into disrepair. Repeated cycles of expanding and contracting as water freezes and melts through cracks in the bitumen has weakened roads across the UK causing cracks that eventually expand into potholes. This exacerbated pothole problem stretches across approximately 24,000 miles across the UK and costs as much as £1million when the monthly claims from drivers whose cars have been damaged come calling. The pessimist may say that... Read full article

The Question of Unreliable Cars

The Question of Unreliable Cars

Hyundai has been named the most reliable car brand according to the JD Power Survey 2018. With this subject trending in the industry, we thought we would question the conundrum of unreliable cars. Multiple surveys are undertaken every year to attempt to deduce which cars are considered the most unreliable, with data collection methods including asking car owners to rate their cars, recording how many faults are reported for the cars each year and examining the number of annual breakdowns. Such surveys include; the JD Power Survey, the Driver Power Survey and studies... Read full article

How Telematics Can Help Reduce the Cost of Running your Fleet

How Telematics Can Help Reduce the Cost of Running your Fleet

The notion of having a black box in a car is frankly, unappealing to most people. Aviva found that 49% of people claimed they would never install a telematics device into their vehicle. A new generation of telematics could take this to the next level. Some telematics systems provide driver coaching whereby your very own inanimate car has somehow found a way to backseat drive.  However redundant or irritating some of the features of a telematics system may be, they can be incredibly useful for reducing the costs of running your fleet. Some telematics systems are... Read full article

Spend Summer in a Convertible

Spend Summer in a Convertible

​This has been the driest start to a summer since records began in 1961, with just 47mm of rain on average having fallen so far nationwide so why not invest in a Convertible car to top up your tan and make the most of this endless sunshine? There are many positives to driving a convertible. The lack of roof gives drivers more visibility, making it easier to manoeuvre and park with a wider radius. This gives the luxury of more headroom to those that are above the average height and don’t want to be confined by a low ceiling. A further benefit of driving a... Read full article

The Final Checks Before the Checkpoint

The Final Checks Before the Checkpoint

  The morning departure for any driving holiday to Europe undoubtedly brings with it a last-minute packing panic. Everyone is scrambling to ensure that there is plenty of time left to reach the 5.00AM ferry that probably departs at 4.45AM. During this last-minute rush, it is more than likely that concerns will revolve around whether there are still three children in the back of the car or whether your father-in-law wandered off at the breakfast pit stop. The last thing that anyone should have to worry about is whether or not there is adequate documentation... Read full article
