As technology becomes more advanced, a growing number of vehicles are being built with intelligent systems to help motorists. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS, is a term used to describe these smart features.
Even the most careful and experienced of drivers sometimes find manoeuvring and reversing in car parks difficult. Most of us don’t do much reversing when you consider that a fraction of our driving time is backwards and the statistics speak for themselves. Around 28%* of all accidents with company cars involve reversing while parking and manoeuvring in car parks.
When you’re behind the wheel of a car – whether alone or with passengers – driving safely should always be your top concern. We’re more distracted than ever, so it’s crucial to know the basics of safe driving and practice them every time you’re on the road.
Not only are correctly inflated tyres safer and longer lasting, they also reduce road resistance which means greater fuel efficiency. Over time tyres naturally leak air so regular checks are important. Consult your handbook for the correct pressures (and increase pressures for heavy loads as recommended).
