Car Warranty Owners Can Help Road Safety Improvements
The motor industry has been recognised for its work in improving road safety. Over the last 20 years there have been several initiatives that have been successful in improving the safety of both drivers and pedestrians on the road.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders have been given the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for their efforts. This award is given annually to organisations that achieve and innovate in the field of road safety.
There has been a 56% reduction over the last two decades in the number of deaths among vehicle occupants, and this has been put down to improvements in car design and safety technology. 2009 saw a 12% drop of deaths in road accidents and new safety improvements are being developed all the time.
One of the main points that Car Warranty owners should consider when it comes to road safety is the maintenance of their vehicle. A well-maintained vehicle is less likely to experience mechanical failures, which can lead to road accidents. Ensuring that the car is serviced regularly and all faults dealt with immediately will be a big help in ensuring the safety of the driver and other occupants.
Those with a car warranty in place can be sure that they will have reduced maintenance costs in the event of a fault occurring, and will have no reason to delay rectification of the fault.
