Driving offences- How to avoid them and keep yourself safe

Driving offences- How to avoid them and keep yourself safe

Here at Vehicle Accessories Limited, we provide a variety of useful equipment to aid our customers with their vehicle needs and ensure they are kept safe and legal. Recent talks of increasing the speeding fine, particularly on motorways- along with the crackdown the police have been making regarding driving offences- is a cause for concern for all drivers.

The currently fixed penalty speeding fine is £100 and 3 points on your licence. The speeding fine for speeding on a motorway can be up to £2500, which the magistrate courts want to increase to a whopping £10000! There have been talks of increasing the number of speed cameras in the UK to deter drivers from speeding.

Want to protect your licence? Check out our Laser Elite Products to prevent yourself, or your employees, getting caught out:

The handbook for the Laser Elite parking sensor range clearly shows that they are operational devices used for parking and that they operate on the same, licence free wavelength of 904 nm as do many other devices. Obviously, some naughty people use them as a way of defeating police laser guns because the laser traps are unable to get a speed reading on any car that has one fitted. The units are supplied with a single laser sensor which is fitted to the front of the vehicle.  A rear sensor can be added if required. Why not have one of our nationwide fitting team come and install it for you?

The laws on using mobile phones while driving is also becoming stricter. The Department of Transport figures attributes 17 deaths and 548 injuries to the use of mobile phones behind the wheel in 2012. Between 2010 and 2012, more than 9000 accidents were blamed on phones and using other distracting devices illegally.

These driving offences are being cracked down on by police. The current penalty is £60 and 3 points on your licence. Here at Vehicle Accessories Limited, we provide some of the best hands-free car kits from as little as £60 and we will fit them for you anywhere in the UK*! Check out our range of hands free car kits.

Save yourself £££’s in the long run, keep yourself safe and prevent getting caught by these new, stricter laws.

First Class! Dave and the team are fantastic. The fit on our first Mobile Bike Service and Repair Van could not be any better. From the very beginning, through the design process, all the way to completion I cannot fault a single thing. As I write this, our second van is being fitted to exactly the same specification and the third van is on the way. Long may this partnership continue!

Very helpful and patient with an older guy who was a bit nervous ordering from a company I didn't know. The product I wanted wasn't on their website but I thought it worth asking and they had it at a good price. It came the next day and worked perfectly.

I highly recommend Lee, Dave and the Team at Vehicle Accessories after they did a fantastic job for a one off bespoke van fit for my business. I approached them with a rather radical high concept idea, Dave did a great job taking notes from my extensive brief. He made a great effort to listen and take notes along the way making sure he understood and made suggestions for materials which really led to a much better end product. A particular highlight was a suggestion for them to fabricate a wall mounted Steal Mesh cage system for my equipment which far exceeded my expectations of quality and engineering. During the planning stage and construction suggestions were made to change materials and systems for what they thought would work better for the project as it developed. The end product was perfect and done to a very high standard, it really turned out better than I ever hoped for. Communication throughout was excellent with regular updates, fast responses and easy dialogue when confirming details or discussing changes. Changes were managed quickly and efficiently throughout the build with a great deal of flexibility and professionalism. Even though I was just having just one bespoke build being done for myself I felt highly valued as a customer and treated with the same level of respect and attentiveness as someone ordering a fleet. The quality of work and customer service will certainly mean I’ll be coming back for my next van project.

I can’t recommend Lee and his team of wizards enough. They fitted the gas with all the safety requirements and modified / adapted several parts of the electrics. They went above and beyond my expectations - I won’t hesitate to use them again.

What can say.... the order process was simple, prices competitive and when it was realised that I had ordered 2 incompatible parts I got a call to check and recify the order. Collection was easy and the install team did a quick, neat job. Job done....until next time thank you

Dave, Lee and the team at VA moved crates from my old van to a new one. Easy to communicate with, quick turn around, met all my requests, made good suggestions (such as putting in a waterproof floor) and did an excellent job. Highly recommend.

Big thanks to Dave and the rest of the Vehicle Accessories team. They've done a great job fitting security locks and a floor in my new van. They also moved over my racking and interior lights from my previous van while going out of there way to make it all fit. Excellent service, very efficient and professional. Highly recommended and nice people to deal with. Thanks Miles Ashton Gas
