RIP the Tax Disc

7 Jan 2014
RIP the Tax Disc The paper tax disc will be phased out next Autumn in a bid to slash admin and printing costs. Although DVLA and the police use tagging linked to a central database to check tax discs, it is the only way a layman can check if a car is taxed - which could cause problems when buying a car.
Furthermore car tax will also be able to be paid by direct debit in monthly installments - what happens if when the car is sold and the debit cancelled? Is the car now untaxed?
I guess we wont be requiring any more of these

Has Britain ever been wetter?!

27 Nov 2012
Has Britain ever been wetter?!

Driving in severe floods:

  1. You should reconsider making the journey at all. If it is unavoidable, and you have to drive through deep water, the IAM recommends drivers take the following precautions:
  2. In deep water never take your foot off the accelerator, as this could allow water to travel up the exhaust pipe
  3. Drive on the highest section of the road and don't set off if a vehicle is approaching you
  4. Leave time and space to avoid swamping other cars and pedestrians
  5. If you canít see where you are going to come out of the water, such as when approaching flooding on a bend, think twice about starting to drive into it
  6. Once you're out of the water, dry the brakes before you need them. The best way is to lightly apply the brake as you drive along for a few seconds, after checking nothing is following you too closely.
