AA Patrol, Trevor Freeman, who has been rescuing broken down Irish motorists for more than 7 years, shares his step by step guide on how to check and refill your coolant tank if required to avoid a breakdown.
Driving with a trailer in tow is a big responsibility and one that motorists should take seriously. Motorists towing a trailer on Irish public roads must ensure that it is fully compliant with national and EU safety standards.
It used to be essential driving practice to follow rigorous running-in procedures to get maximum life and driving performance out of a new vehicle. Older drivers will perhaps remember the sight of a new car driving slowly in the nearside lane of a motorway with a 'running-in, please pass' sign on the vehicle’s rear window!
These are the most common problems dealt with by AA patrols. Many can be fixed at the roadside, but most can be avoided by regular car maintenance and following of the recommended car servicing schedule.
