The Weekly Roundup

The 130-car pile up on the A249 Sheppey crossing in Kent earlier this month is a stark reminder of the dangers of driving in fog. The AA have put forward proposals to the Government suggesting that a mandatory motorway lesson would be a good place to start educating new drivers about adapting to bad weather conditions.

New research from Kwik Fit can reveal that more than one in three motorists in the UK admit they are thinking of skipping their next car service. The survey also discovered that 10% of motorists 'never' check their tyres for wear and tear, while 15% are currently experiencing problems with their brakes but not looking to have them repaired.
