Over half (56%) of British drivers want tougher penalties for those who break road laws, according to a recent poll conducted by Be Wiser Insurance.
Mark Bower-Dyke, chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, comments:
This week marked the start of the summer holidays and many parents will be planning days out to keep the children entertained during the break. Despite the fun of these trips the journeys to and from the destination can be long and tiresome; especially on a hot summer’s day.
Continuing growth in business has led to Be Wiser Insurance opening an additional office in Andover as it celebrates its fifth year of trading.
Many of us love social media sites like FaceBook and twitter, they are great for keeping in touch with friends and letting the world know what you had for lunch. However, it seems that many younger drivers are so addicted that they are even checking their status updates whilst driving.
In an unusual step by the Government, to reduce “Red Tape” the roads minister has announced that from November many older cars will not have to take an MoT test. Cars manufactured before 1960 are the focus of this new move.
While many would agree getting on two wheels is a great idea to save money and help the planet; however, some cyclists seem to be taking advantage of cars and not obeying the rules of the road just to get ahead.
Andover based Be Wiser Insurance Services Limited, an insurance broking company specialising in private car insurance, has experienced strong growth this past year.
This is a jubilee year and many people are looking back at 1952 to see how much the British Isles have changed under the benevolent rule of Queen Elizabeth II. One area that seems to have made a big change over the years is road safety.
Britain has some truly lovely countryside and one of the pleasures for many of us is to take a leisurely drive down a leafy lane or rural side road and admire the view.
It may not seem surprising that millions of cars fail their annual MoT as there are an estimated 34 million on the roads of Britain today. However, a recent report has shown that some cars are more susceptible than others to problems.
