There have been a spate of vehicle break-ins, largely due to vehicles being left unlocked by the owner. The offenders are wandering around and trying the handles to cars. vans etc, and get lucky when a door opens. Don't be a victim it only takes a minute to check you have locked your vehicle.
The weather has always been a major topic of conversation in our country and, as our weather becomes increasingly unpredictable, it is worth remembering this news item.
In 2012, almost as soon as thoughts turned to dealing with serious drought it started to rain and we had floods. As always flooded roads present a serious hazard to drivers. Apart from the risks associated with spray and poor grip there is a risk of damaging your car even with a relatively small depth of water.
Never underestimate the threat that floods can present, travelling through a wide expanse of water, often flowing across your direction of travel can become disorientating. Objects and holes are hidden under the surface and the current in a suprisingly shallow depth of water can soon push a car sideways.
