More than a third (37%) of motorists claim they haven’t had a vision test in the past two years or more, despite good eyesight being a basic requirement of safe driving. Men are apparently more likely to not wear...

Pupils from five different primary schools across the town took part in the competition, which received over 300 entries from across Scotland, and a second pupil from Gargieston Primary received a Highly Commended award.

Research by Direct Line Car Insurance has revealed that over 14 million motorists have driven damaged or un-roadworthy cars on UK roads in the past two years. On average drivers wait almost a month and a half (43 days) before getting their car fixed and as a result risk long term damage. The research also highlighted the extent to which cars play an integral role in motorists’ lives. More than a quarter (29%) of those who have driven a damaged car, delayed getting it fixed because they rely on it to take their children to school or get to work. The most common type of problems reported include: damage to body work (mentioned by 44% of motorists), cracked or chipped windscreens (27%), faulty lights (18%) driving with bold tyres (11%) Even if the damage appears minor, drivers should be aware that they can be penalised by police for vehicle defects, says...

Should your car have winter tyres?

Posted by on in Tyres
While in many parts of Europe it is the law to have winter tyres installed, it is not compulsory to have them in the UK. Despite this, a number of people opt to install winter tyres in the UK, especially if they are living in remote parts of the country. Such tyres use a tread rubber compound and tread pattern specifically designed to retain flexibility at low temperatures, preferably below 7 degrees. The winter tyres give good braking/traction performance on snow/ice as well as on wet roads in cold conditions and can allow drivers to commute safely in winter weather or frosty temperature. Winter tyres or alternatively, all weather tyres will be beneficial if you live in a remote area. If you opt to fit winter tyres, there is no need to tell your insurance company as such tyres will not affect your insurance rate. Whatever tyres you fit they must...
