It’s not the nicest experience to wake up, walk to your motor, to realise that your tyres have been slashed or damaged. Especially if it becomes a repeat attack and a very expensive one! A town in Cumbria was under a 6 month flurry of damage to a range of cars. Residents were suffering from “slow punctures” which, as you can understand, don’t always show straight away, but do at the most pivotal point when you actually need to get somewhere. One resident Anne Taylor, ended up having to have 12 tyres replaced. Enough was enough and she decided to set up...

A pristine condition, 27 year old Volvo is being sold with only 127 miles on the clock. The owner of the Volvo bought the car new back in 1987, took it out for a drive for a few weeks and then accidentally scraped a bollard, which, knocked his confidence so much, he put the Volvo in his garage and that is where it stayed, until it was recently discovered after the death of the owner. The car is in such great condition, it still has the original Paper Volvo floor mats! The 2 door 340 will be going up for...

Reducing the smog

Comments: 0 Read More

A fantastic story this week from our friends across the Channel in France. This week Paris was engulfed in a smog, which was above the normal limits of pollution. So, the French government decided to put a ban on all those cars with even number plates entering the city. The idea was that this would allow the pollution to return to normal “safe” levels. But, being a rather “relaxed” country, many of the drivers ignored the ban, and in the first day of the ban, the French police gave out nearly 4000 fines to drivers. The plan was to ban the even plates...

The State of UK roads

Comments: 0 Read More

At this time of year, although after a rather mild winter, any spell of dryness reveals the state of the roads around the UK. Lying water and ice makes tarmac crumble like dust, and many of the roads are now undergoing repairs due to this weather. The route of the Yorkshire Stage of the Tour De France has had special attention, as you can imagine, it would be rather embarrassing the world turning up to cycle along roads that were full of pot holes. When it comes to road markings, this is where the UK doesn't do very well. Only 16%...
