Check your vehicle out! A new RoSPA video

After the unseasonable mini-heatwave of last week, autumn is back. The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is upon us, bringing with it the promise of winter – and so perhaps now is a good time to remind ourselves of some basic vehicle checks that can save time, money and possibly pain.

We all know that there are regular checks we should make to our cars; but how many of us know exactly what they are and how to do them? Not to mention whether they are done regularly at all.

But a few minutes spent making a few simple checks can identify potential problems before they cost motorists money. Plus, there’s the peace of mind that your vehicle is reliable and safe.

Kevin Clinton, RoSPA’s head of road safety, has made a short film outlining the vehicle checks we should all be making on a regular basis – as well as reminding us how often they should be carried out.

  1. Video is good but would be better without the music which is too loud which makes it hard to hear the advise

  2. Good general advice but no mention was made about the benefits of winter tyres or the age of your tyres. The age is shown on every tyre but you must know where to look for it and how to interpret the code. Most manufacturers recommend that tyres should be changed before they are 8 years old even if they have plenty of tread left. This is because tyres decay with age.

  3. My brother suggested I might like this website. He was entirely right.
    This post actually made my day. You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent for this
    information! Thanks!

  4. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

  5. I’m fairly aware but learned something new watching this. Re checking tyre pressure when tyres warm – could give an incorrect reading. Little things like this are really useful to know

  6. Your really can’t tell when something happens out from safety. It takes a great conscious effort to do some vehicle or car check before you hit the road.
