Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Is the little black box under the bonnet really the saviour of young drivers or is it a way that the insurance industry can attract the already cautious young driver in order to reduce their exposure to the more risky or reckless teenage driver?




Finding a reputable car dealership can be a lottery.

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

It is always difficult to know where to spend your hard earned cash. When purchasing a car it is not only about getting a good deal, just as important is the customer service you receive after you have driven your car off the forecourt. So many dealerships ensure that their time and effort is spent on selling you a car but once sold, they neglect their responsibilities towards the car buyer. This week, RoadDriver’s managing director Charles Dunn himself had first hand experience of how a dealership ought to treat its customers. He received excellent after care service from Lifestyle Europe Ltd http://www.lifestyleeurope.co.uk/ Well done Lifestyle Europe!

Let us know what sort of after-care service you have received from your car dealership




Government plan to charge for road use

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Why should motorists have to pay an additional toll to use the road network when they already pay for this use via exorbitant fuel duty. RoadDriver is totally against yet another tax imposed on motorists. What are your views on this government proposal?




A bus driver who used his bus as a weapon is caught on camera.

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Video shows a Road Rage bus driver using his bus as a weapon to knock over a cyclist he had an altercation with.

Around 8.30am on April 5 last year, Gavin Hill got into an argument with keen cyclist Phillip Mead after cutting in front of him onto St James Barton roundabout in Bristol.

When the bus stopped Mr Mead parked his bike against the front of the bus, and tugged at one of its windscreen wipers, he then got back on his bike and cycled off chased by Mr Frome who then deliberately swerved his bus to knock him off his bicycle.

Driver Gavin Hill, 29, of Frome, had previously pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily harm. Sentencing Hill to 17 months in jail, Judge Mark Horton said his action was not an accident, it was an assault, deliberate dangerous driving.

The following video shows what can happen when a perfectly normal driver loses all control. Mr Hill’s normal passive character completely evaporated when he entered a heightened state of anger commonly referred to as the red mist effect.
