The Weekly Roundup

Drivers make more than twice as many mistakes when they are just mildly dehydrated, according to new research. The study revealed that drivers who had only had 25ml of water an hour made more than double the number of mistakes on the road than those who were hydrated - the same amount as those who have been drink driving.

Faults that flash up on tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) could see millions of cars in the UK fail the MOT test. The technology comes fitted in most modern motors, flagging up when tyre pressure dips below the level it should be at through a warning light on the dashboard to help drivers pre-empt punctures and even blowouts.
