  • What To Do & Not To Do In A Road Traffic Collision
    good driver is meaningless as the other person involved in the RTC may well not be so don t let pride get in the way of your safety 2 Take down as much information as you can about the other party Write down a description of the car licence plate number as well as the driver s name number and details This may sound like a pretty basic thing but it is surprising how many people forget in the heat of the moment 3 Take a photo of the damage Everyone s phone has a camera these days which makes it very easy to take an accurate recording of the damage that has been done and depending on the scale of the accident will allow you to record the positioning of the vehicles in the direct aftermath of the collision If your phone has no camera keep a disposable one in your emergency kit 4 It does not matter if you are on the way to your daughter s first ballet recital or your son s Bar Mitzvah stay at the scene There is no reason at all to leave the scene of an accident before the proper authorities have spoken to you details have been exchanged and you have been checked over by a medical professional If you do leave the scene before these things have been done your insurance may not pay out and if you have been injured you may not be able to prove the injury occurred as a result of the accident as you were well enough at the time to leave WHAT NOT TO DO 1 Though this may be difficult and it is more easily said than done try to keep calm Whether or not you deem the accident the other drivers fault they are probably just as shaken up as you are and chances are they did not intend to hit you Additionally emotions will be heightened in the initial aftermath and the last thing you need to do after a car crash is get into a fist fight in the middle of the road 2 This cannot be said clearly enough NEVER try to pay the other party off in the hopes of avoiding getting insurance companies involved There is no guarantee that the other party will honour the agreement and they may come after you regardless more importantly by doing so you have basically admitted you were the one at fault making their case against you stronger 3 Do not admit you were at fault It may be your natural reaction following a collision to spring out of the car apologising profusely as you were texting a super important message The minute you have done so its game over This is not to say you should lie to the authorities or give a false statement but you ought to leave it up to the insurance companies to decide who the party at fault was You may well have been texting

  • Car Maintenance Tips You Can't Live Without
    your engine Just to enforce the point a 5 litre bottle of motor oil can be bought for roughly 20 a new carburettor will cost over 150 not including garage fees Sometimes it will be necessary for you to replace the oil in your car even though there is still an abundance of it present This is due to the dirt that can build up in the oil and if left unchecked it will also eventually clog up the filter In terms of the human body this would be the same as something blocking off your kidneys all the bad stuff would bypass the filtration system and cause untold damage Luckily you would have to drive thousands of miles before it would cause truly irreparable damage but we would recommend that you think about changing your oil about once a year or roughly every 7500 miles depending on which comes around first Tyre pressure is the next thing you should always keep an eye on Most modern cars have a warning light that can give you a degree of prior warning before a blowout occurs but it is not like the low petrol warning light where you can cover another 20 ish miles When the low tyre pressure light is activated this means your pressure is dangerously low and the tyre could very well blow at any moment This is especially dangerous if you find the light on whilst the car is in motion as the tyres will be hot and the air inside will have expanded so there is actually less air in the tyre than your car thinks there is but the likelihood of your tyre bursting is increased Additionally the warning light may not always be accurate as the lower the pressure becomes the greater the chance of the tyre spontaneously failing resulting in a blowout that will in the very least decimate the wheel arch axel and your insurance If you do find yourself with low tyre pressure make your way to the nearest petrol station or garage while driving as slowly as possible thus reducing the chance of a blowout and the level of damage done compared to if one occurred while you were driving at speed Tyre integrity can also be maintained and prolonged by avoiding parking with your tyres pressed against a kerb or anything else that can keep them misshapen for any amount of time Additionally the warmer the weather the more regularly you ought to check tyre pressure Water levels in your engine much like the oil should also be considered as essential as it is used to prevent the engine from overheating An over heated engine can cause immense damage to itself and your bank balance especially as most insurance companies will not cover it as it is generally 100 your fault if it happens One of the most common results of over heating an engine is blowing the head gasket which is used to stop foreign liquids from getting

  • Simple Ways To Keep You Car Going For Longer
    2 Does your car key share a place with every other key and key ring you own If so you should consider putting on a chain by itself Why Relatively speaking key rings can get quite heavy and that weight combined with bouncing while you drive can wear out the tumblers inside the ignition which will eventually lead to ignition switch failure If your ignition key is already beginning to stick when you try to turn on the car take it as a warning that your ignition switch is about to fail 3 Park in the shade or better still buy a car cover Why As well as making your car look great paint acts as a defense against the rusting of body panels and ultra violet rays from the sun break down paint and cause it to become faded Parking in the shade will increase the longevity of the paint and a car cover will protect your car from other hazards like branches or bikes as well 4 Don t let any exposed panels go without a touch of paint Why Exposed panels will quickly rust and once having done so will not be easily painted over or protected Once there rust will eat through sooner or later and the repairs will be far more expensive than a bit of paint 5 Get any small chips or cracks in windscreens repaired as soon as possible Why Even the smallest chip or crack will become larger with time reducing visibility and structural integrity Getting a small crack fixed is very easy these days it will not require you to get the whole screen replaced and the cost of getting it fixed when it is small is much lower than fixing it once it has had time to grow and stretch

  • Britain to Become Second-Largest Car Maker in Europe
    reported that increasing demand for British brands in countries such as China are bringing UK car plants run by Jaguar Land Rover and other brands like BMW and Nissan to full capacity Managing Director of BMW s UK operations Tim Abbott believes that if this trend continues Britain will be producing more cars than France as early as 2018 All the indications appear to be saying Britain will be second in a few years It will be about the demand for the cars made in the UK but that looks to be there judging by the recent performance of the likes of Jaguar Land Rover Nissan and BMW According to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association 1 5 million cars were made in Britain in 2012 and current expectations expect this to hit 2 million by 2018 European industry leader Germany produced 5 5 million vehicles last year but France made just 1 9 million due to slowing sales for its major brands PSA Peugeot Citroen and Renault Demand for new vehicles in Europe fell to a 17 year low in 2012 as the effects of the continuing recession are still felt across the continent By contrast demand domestically for British cars grew in May 2013 and sales have jumped year to date to 948 666 units beating pre recession levels In fact the industry has recorded 15 consecutive months of growth now helped in large part by demand from emerging markets China is now Jaguar Land Rover s largest market a fact that has prompted the company to build a factory there which now produces 130 000 vehicles a year As the SMMT have said With government support and vehicle manufacturers investing billions in UK plants the prospects are very good This post appears in Industry News This post has
