Motorists urged to tick all the boxes this winter says The Motor Ombudsman

THE Motor Ombudsman, the

automotive dispute resolution provider, is urging drivers to look out for its widely-recognised logo at their local independent garage or franchised dealer when getting their car ready for the cold weather. A business displaying the Motor Ombudsman badge on their website and premises, which is centered around a prominent blue tick as a symbol of reassurance, means that motorists can have the peace of mind that the retailer is committed to providing the highest level of care and workmanship. With the end-of-year season traditionally bringing tougher conditions on the road, making sure that a vehicle is fully roadworthy, whether for the daily commute or for the holiday getaway, is essential to staying safe.

All wrapped up for Christmas - Honda (UK) offers complimentary Rider Safety Pack with all new sales of entry-level TRX90 ATV

ROAD SAFETY and breakdown organisation GEM Motoring Assist is urging all drivers not

to leave their

engines idling. Not only is the practice illegal, but it also has an impact on health and the environment, and is an unnecessary use of fuel, says GEM. Idling is the term given to leaving your car’s engine running while your vehicle is stationary and you are not planning on moving off. According to GEM road safety officer Neil Worth, idling your engine is not only against the law, but it also makes a significant contribution to the 40,000 air pollution-related deaths in the UK each year.

“Idling means your car, van or truck pumps loads more carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other potentially harmful exhaust gases into the air. “Tat’s why it’s an offence under section 42 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, as made clear by Rule 123 of

the Highway

Code. Leaving a vehicle engine running unnecessarily while stationary on a public road can land you with a £20 penalty charge notice. “So we ask drivers

to think

twice before sitting stationary in their vehicle with the engine running. By switching off you will be helping to improve air quality, reducing your carbon footprint and complying with the law.”
