Revamped Highway Code  

There are many new rules in the all new revamped Highway Code.

Here is just one to be aware of:

Driver Vehicle Standards Agency Officers have now the power to stop you on all roads and motorways.

They will attract you by flashing amber lights from front requesting you to follow to a safe place to stop.

Or from behind directing you to pull over to the side of the road using left indicator.

In all cases it is an offence if you do not stop!

ARE YOU TOWING BLIND

IT IS IMPORTANT to have Extended Mirrors fitted to your vehicle and a legal requirement you must be able to see 4 metres from the side of your trailer /caravan……and distance of 20 metres behind driver.

ARE YOU TOWING BLIND

So if your Trailer / Caravan is wider than your tow vehicle by law you must fit and use extended mirrors you can be fined up to £1000  and 3 points on license.

Many drivers have received a fixed penalty of £60 and 3 points!


REGULAR TRAILER SERVICE SAVES MONEY

Question (commonly asked)   

WHEN I START TO BRAKE WHEN TRAVELLING MY TRAILER STARTS TO BANG AT REAR OF VEHICLE?

ANSWER

This BANGING may be due to a worn damper within the trailer coupling.

Bearing in mind the damper acts as a Shock Absorber. The trailer tends to nose dive towards tow vehicle…

If this is the case a new damper would be required.

BUT before to much expense it is important the trailer brakes are checked and brake cables working correctly.

Good working Brakes are so important.

So a brake check, if there’s still banging you will need new damper.

So we Recommend
