Neighbour parking conflicts and disputes

 
Read our last blog post
 
Respect your neighbour and hopefully, they will respect you – it’s pretty standard behaviour. Unfortunately, however, theory and practice don’t always unite, as one in three disagreements that occur between neighbours is related to parking or cars. With more and more household having two or in some cases, even more, cars, houses and driveways getting smaller and cars getting bigger is it any real wonder that conflicts can occur on an all too regular basis.

Rubbish on our roads

Litter being thrown from a carIf there is one thing I cannot bare it is people throwing litter out of their cars, the other day I followed a car and literally the passenger was just chucking out paper wrappers, plastic bottles, and cans.  I was appalled and it made me wonder what are the laws if any and what can you do as a fellow road user to stop this behaviour. 

What are the laws on throwing litter out of cars?

According to the highway code Rule 147 states ‘you MUST NOT throw anything out of a vehicle; for example, food or food packaging, cigarette ends, cans, paper or carrier bags. This can endanger other road users, particularly motorcyclists and cyclists.‘

It would seem that only London have a penalty in

Mother’s Day – A light-hearted look at some facts about mum drivers

It isn’t that long ago that the majority of families only had one car – how things have changed! Nowadays most families have two cars, and the taxi of mum (or sometimes dad) is very busy ferrying children from one club to the next, from school to a party and trying to fit in any appointments, the shopping and pretty much anything else you can think of into the middle of the day whilst children are at school.

With Mother’s Day here (26th March), let us take a light-hearted look at some of the lesser known facts about the army of mum drivers, that group of unofficial chauffeurs who do so much more than we realise.

Car journeys with your dog

When it comes to choosing a car we will think about what we would like to drive, how we will fit the kids in comfortably and for many of us UK drivers, will our pet dog/s have enough space.  There are plenty of makes and models of cars to choose from, and depending on the size of your dog or the amount of dogs you have, there is a wide variety of vehicles to choose from.

At CVS Ltd we had an enquiry from a lady for a personal car lease, a Fiat 500 convertible, she stated that it had to be convertible for her dog.  Our Director Ben asked her what dog she had “a great dane” she replied “he likes to sit in the car with his head out the top”.  Now that was definitely a sight I would have liked to have seen!
