According to research by insurance company, 76% of all roadworks carried out in the UK do nothing to improve the condition of the nations roads. The research revealed that most of the work carried out was on the UK road network is to fix utilities.
About 1.5 million separate roadworks are carried out each year, and of these only 24% are to improve the roads we use.
37% were as a result of water mains repairs, 7% electricity and 5% gas maintenance.
Hertfordshire was the worst affected area concerning water mains repairs with more than 18,500 repairs in 2010 alone.
However there are signs of improvement across the country with councils allowing 12,000 repairs on their regions roads in 2012 compared with 13,000 in 2010.
The constant digging up of the roads has not only caused untold misery for millions of motorists but has also hit council budgets further with nearly 10,000 claims for vehicle damage being lodged in the last three years.
This amounts to nine claims every day, and a staggering £29 million in payouts by councils in that time alone.
Now do you understand what your car tax is spent on?

Tailgating is apparently the most annoying driving habit, but more than half of drivers admit to doing it.
A survey of more than 3000 people by Admiral Insurance found that tailgating is considered the most annoying driving habit.
According to Brake, the road safety charity, over 50% of drivers admit to doing it.
What’s the correct way to deal with them safely?

How to rid yourself of these pests safely.

This all depends on whether the tailgater is passive or aggressive.
An aggressive tailgater has the clear intention of overtaking you. They will actively get right up your backside in a way that says “get the hell out of my way”

A passive tailgater is different altogether.

They’re quite happy for you to take the lead, but have no real intention of passing you. This is probably due to not concentrating and not thinking about leaving a safe braking distance.

We need to approach these two different selfish drivers in different ways.

Aggressive tailgaters

This one is easy, as soon as it’s safe to let them pass, do so.

It can be tempting to hold them up or wind them up. Good advice would be to slow down by gently easing off the gas pedal. This will hopefully lead to them passing you sooner and becoming some other poor motorists problem.

If you try to aggravate them you’ll only make the situation worse, which could lead to road rage, and we all know where those incidents have led to in the past.

Passive tailgaters

To deal with these people will require a bit more thought.

With both passive and aggressive always leave lots of room in front.

Even though it is tempting to make some room between you and the oblivious moron behind you, you may need this extra space for safer braking. And if you get too close to the car in front, then you become the problem!!!

Flashing your brake lights continuously is likely to have little effect, the more you do it the less impact it will have, and if they’re really too close they’re not going to see your brake lights anyway.

Ease off the accelerator in case you have to brake sharply.

If you do get rear ended, it is highly unlikely that you will ever be found at fault if you are hit from behind.


Don’t be a tailgater yourself!!!

Only a fool breaks the two second rule!!!

Chevrolet have replaced the Matiz with the Spark back in 2009, but there are plenty second hand ones to choose from. Low price and cute looks has the girls queuing up for this one.

The Toyota Aygo is ideal for a city run-around, and good on fuel consumption. With only a 1.0-litre engine it tends to struggle on motorways, and does get a bit noisy.

Fun to drive around town and prices starting under £8000 the Kia Picanto is a good idea. The larger 1.25-litre engine comes with the stop-start function. And with a seven year warranty you can’t really go wrong.

Peugeot 107, low in price, and looking good! Launched seven years ago, it is the French Toyota Aygo. It has all the same advantages, but unfortunately all the same drawbacks, especially on the motorway.

A ladies favourite, the Tigra from Vauxhall can be found used for less than £2000. This budget coupe-cabriolet is ideal for the girls in summer, but be aware of the insurance premium for the 1.8-litre model.

Love them or loathe them the Mini Cooper is firmly in the top 20 list of female favourites. Sporty and stylish, it’s no surprise to see why this is so popular. When you encounter them on the road they don’t even think they own it, unlike drivers of other BMW models!

Based roughly on the Fiat 500, the Ford Ka is far better than it’s Italian friend. Go for the Zetec trim as equipment levels are low on the base models.

The Fiat 500 with its funny looks and tinny interior would look at home in a Tuscan village. There is the option of the folding-top Convertible, this boasts slightly more Italian pizzazz.

Full of style and German reliability, and so cute with it, the New Beetle from Volkswagen has everything you could ask for in a car. With new sporty models available, and extra power with the Turbo version.

The most popular car among Britain’s females is………………………………………The Figaro from Nissan. Top in the cute charts, and never officially sold in this country, with only 20,000 manufactured, it may one day be a sound investment!
