5 Things You Need to Know About Car Accidents Abroad and Making Claims

It may be trickier to make a car accident injury claim when it happened abroad, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done:  Being involved in a car accident at home is surely among the worst things that can happen to you, whether or not you’re injured as a result. But what if it happens when you’re driving abroad? Different language, culture, laws and regulations – how on earth do you go about making a claim for compensation? Continue reading

Documenting Road Safety

I rarely watch ‘reality’ TV. To me these programmes are usually just mindless schedule stuffing content, like so much bread in a cheap sausage. That said, I have watched a few of the eye-opening police road safety documentaries about the tribulations of our very thin blue line of traffic cops and the knuckle-dragging Neanderthals they have to contend with.

Five Common Misconceptions About Drinking & Driving Insurance.

Each year, thousands of drivers are convicted of driving, or being in charge of a vehicle, whilst they are over the legal alcohol limit. These types of convictions can stay on your license from 4 – 11 years. But what about drink driving insurance? There are many myths surrounding these types of insurance policies. Continue reading

HARMAN Respond To New Security Challenges

The risks posed by the rise of car connectivity: Automotive electronics giant HARMAN is pioneering the new field of automotive cyber security, as the prospect of cyber-attacks on vehicles becomes an increasingly serious one. More and more customers want or even demand a ‘connected car’ and, in theory at least, any form of wireless link – even via a separate mobile phone or tablet – could provide the conduit that hackers need to access the main vehicle systems like brakes or engine.

Take Care With Holiday Driving

Now that the summer holidays are truly upon us, many of you are likely to be driving off into continental Europe for some hard-earned R&R. Have things changed in Europe given our recent decision? Will you find that a Five Pound note only buys one Euro? Would it be better to barter with bright beads or perhaps live goats? Whatever the welcome you receive one thing never changes: European cops hate you. 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

Driverless Cars – Will We Really Have A Choice?

Now see here. We don’t care for change. We’re British. Look how long it took us to get over manual gearboxes. Even a very famous journalist once grumbled about ‘stupid flappy paddles’. Real men change gears with a stick. Only thanks to unrelenting determination by car makers did we finally accept that, y’know, those DCT’s aren’t too bad. High praise indeed from the British.

A Limit Not A Target: Why Motorists Will Never Agree.

If you haven’t done anything wrong then you have nothing to fear”. This statement is absolutely true. Conversely, it could be seen as the mantra of the moaning minnies for whom any minor transgression is tantamount to treason. Rules are rules but they are not necessarily good or sensible rules.

The Eyes Have It (2)

No apologies for returning to this subject. Speaking as an almost lifelong specoid I am very conscious of my eyesight and how it can change. Speaking as a motoring writer I understand how important eyesight is when it comes to driving. I get an annual eye-test without fail. But enough about me, what about your eyes? Continue reading

Benefits Of Installing A Back Up Camera For Your Motor

Rear view cameras are becoming an increasingly popular safety feature in both modern motors and classic cars. This automotive technology can save lives, prevent injury and even save on damages to your car. The main benefit of this new feature is undeniable: It helps drivers back up their vehicle safely which reduces the risk of hitting a bollard, another car or, even worse, a cyclist or pedestrian.
