While we know most of you realise that you have to drive within the speed limit, whatever road you’re on, recent news of spot checks in the Bournemouth area may have got many people thinking.

Whether it’s your first car or you prefer to buy second hand, a few simple tips from our Queens Park Garage team should help avoid some of the common pitfalls many buyers face.

You might think driving during the summer is easier, what with it being lighter and the days much longer. The truth is these four or so months in the middle of the year present their own unique hazards.

The team at Queen’s Park Garage in Bournemouth have gotten together to explore the things you need to keep an eye open for. Here’s our top 8 list of driving hazards during the summer months:

Another interesting year lies ahead of us in the UK and many of you may be searching for a new car. So because we love cars at Queens Park Garage we thought it would be a good opportunity to take a closer look at what’s coming in 2019.

It’s important to keep up with the latest laws when you are out and about on the road. Many people don’t know that there are a whole range of different bits of legislation coming into effect this year.

Here’s our quick guide on what you need to be aware of...

Car maintenance can be a chore and a bore for those of us that just have a car to go from A to B and can never seem to find the time. But it could save your life… Our cars have a lot of working parts that need TLC every now and again and the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to do this is to make regular checks at home which can prevent internal damage to your engine but also help avoid break downs or dangerous faults whilst you are driving.

Although to some, checking your tyre pressure and inflating your tyres comes easily and is a regular part of your car maintenance routine – we find that many drivers still find this a daunting task, usually for fear of getting it wrong or simply because they do not have the time.

Incorrect tyre pressure will reduce the life of your tyres and cause uneven wear which will mean you
will need to replace your tyres more often, can lead to higher fuel consumption and cause damage
to other components which ultimately will cost more money to fix over time.
