Driving and using your phone

New mobile phone law whilst driving.


Everyone knows, or should know, that using your phone whilst driving is illegal. However it is all too easy to think of doing. You could be stuck in traffic and receive a text or sat at the traffic lights and your phone starts to ring, ever been tempted to have a cheeky look? Well the law changed from the 1st of March about the use of mobile phones whilst you are driving. Here's what you need to know... 
If you are caught using your mobile phone whilst driving you can be receiving a £200 fine. Just think what £200 could get you and you'll have to pay that for just one mistake... Not only could you receive that fine but you could also end up with 6 penalty points on your licence.

It takes 12 points on your licence to have your licence taken from you depending on the situation. So all you need is to be caught twice on your phone whilst driving and you'll ended up in total paying out £400 in fines and then also losing your licence.

Just think when you're behind the wheel, do you really want to risk it? I hope the answer is no! If you need to take a phone call just safely pull up to the side of the road when possible or just don't take the call. If you need to send a message, just wait till the car engine is turned off. Last of all instead of constantly touching your phone to change the song maybe just put a playlist on of your choice before setting off.

Top five reasons people fail their driving tests

Top 5 reasons people fail their practical driving test.
BY SAFEDRIVE DRIVING SCHOOL
According to the GOV website in 2017 there were certain reasons why people tend to fail their practical driving test. We've picked out the top 5.

Junctions (observation)
Observation at a junction was the top reason why people tend to fail their driving test. People tend to not observe effectively when they are approaching a junction. You can get marked a fault if the examiner believes that: 
You aren't efficiently observing when you approach a junction
If you don't observe efficiently when you are emerging into the path of another vehicle.
And ALWAYS make sure it is safe before proceeding.

Mirrors – (change direction)
People tend to fail due to mirrors because they don't check mirrors when they change their speed. People tend to get caught out not checking their mirrors when they are pulling up and they also forget to use both their rear view mirror and wing mirrors. 
However some times there are people who are using their mirrors but still tend to fail. This is because they are using their mirrors too late and therefore rendering the use of mirrors pointless. People need to remember not only to use their mirrors but also to use them at the right time.

 Control (steering) 
So steering is an important part of driving, hence why it's so important to get right. Now most people tend to fail because they are mounting and dismounting the curb and just not controlling their steering properly. When driving it is important to maintain a steady course when driving so you drive safely and of course minimising the risk of causing an accident. So when on your test just remember to keep control of the steering at all times! 

Junctions (turning right) 
When turning right at a junction you must remember to position the car correctly so that it doesn't cut any corners when turning. This is why many people tend to fail. Also people are forgetting to check for cyclists and motorcyclists and pedestrians crossing the road. Of course this is very dangerous so it is very important to remember. You don't want to be running a dog or anyone over, so always remember to check for these things.
Move off (safely)
Moving off from the side off the road can seem straight forward. However it's easier said than done. People tend to fail on their tests because they aren't looking when they are moving away from the road, so they aren't checking to see if there are any cars coming up from behind them and looking around for pedestrians. Also the control of the car is very important when you are moving away from the side of the road. People tend to stall the car when trying to move away safely, attempt this with the hand break on and some also tend to roll back when attempting this. So you must remember to look around when you move away and also have control of the car.

The wonderful snow..


So this blog post is starting out differently to usual. Today's post is about the weather lateley…

Yes the dreaded snow, where do we start? So up and down the country it's affected areas differently. Here in Chesterfield it's caused people to be snowed in which caused our office to be shut Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday. Yes the kids loved the snow days not being at school, however drivers up and down the country had other thoughts about the snow.

Snow is beautiful and gorgeous however is can be dangerous. The snow caused the M62 to close as people were stuck for almost 12 hours. On the 1st of March it was reported that there were 40 incidents involving the snow.

To be safe when weather like this strikes be sure that your tyres have adequate tread, pack for the worst (blankets shovels, snacks, drinks etc. in the boot) and make sure that there is a safe stopping distance between the car in front of you and then when
the snow gets really bad only travel if absolutely necessary. Just remember to be safe on the roads. Hopefully this is the last we see of the snow for a while now... fingers crossed.
