There's no predicting if your car is going to breakdown and the chances of breaking down are slim if you maintain your car's health!
However, these things happen to the best of us and knowing what to do in these situations can save a lot of unnecessary stress - especially if you're stranded on a motorway.
Breakdown cover is not a legal condition but having it can make your life a lot easier if the unexpected happens. If you're in the market for taking out a breakdown cover plan, Evans Halshaw would highly recommend you do, if you want to avoid a hefty towing bill.
Did you know that vehicle maintenance repair is rated in the top 5 most dangerous job categories in the UK? Also in the top 5 is lorry driving, meaning that breakdown recovery workers in the AA or the RAC for example, are at a very high risk within their trade.
Data gathered from between 2011 and 2016 by the health and safety (HSE) executive showed 86 deaths at work amongst vehicle maintenance repair workers and lorry drivers.
Of course, we're all well aware of the importance of road safety, but do we consider our recovery drivers who on some level risk their lives in their day-to-day job?
A lot of breakdowns happen unnecessarily due to the neglect of your vehicle health. A good way to maintain your vehicle health is to get it serviced and checked regularly. Why not take advantage of Evans Halshaw's great offers on service plans including discounted MOT's and complimentary vehicle health checks...
