The Weekly Roundup

A study carried out by internet giant Google has revealed that up to 76% of motorists make decisions about car maintenance based on online research, meaning it’s more important now than ever for workshops to make sure they’re not missing out on the opportunity to win work from these owners.

In other news, the Shell FuelSave Smarter Driving study ranked young (aged 18-30) and older motorists (aged 50-65) on their 'smart' and 'not-smart' driving behaviours in terms of fuel efficiency and safety, through their answers to a series of questions. While young people in the north of England appear to be the smartest young drivers the nation has to offer, the overriding result of the survey is that older drivers and their wise ways reign supreme on the road.
