I Have No Plans To Buy Another Car

As a motoring writer I am privileged to have regular access to many cars from many manufacturers. Almost every week that passes will find me in a different motor with a few other one day drives thrown into the equation.

Glass’s Guide Goes Digital

If history (and Joni Mitchell) teaches us anything it is that we don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone. Over time we have seen print newspaper and magazines fall to the power of the internet. More and more publications have given up the fight and gone digital and that includes motor trade periodicals. Continue reading

What Are The First Things To Do After A Car Crash?

We all hope to avoid them but accidents, as they say, do happen. If you had a car crash, would you know what steps to take in the immediate aftermath? What about later on? We all like to think we would have the presence of mind to act, but keeping a cool head in an emergency situation is easier said than done. You might be dealing with injuries, high emotions and a scene of confusion. That is why it is a good idea to think ahead and have a plan in case the worst should happen. Continue reading
