Car insurance: Motorists warned not to be dim

Monday, 06 October 2008

Drivers who are keen to keep their car insurance premiums cheap by avoiding making a claim need to make sure their lights are working properly as the days start to get shorter, the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has said.

The group suggests motorists test each light in turn with the help of a second party.

If there is no-one available to help, the organisation advises drivers find a reflective surface - like a garage door – and check by looking at the reflections.

According to IAM, people should slow down if an oncoming vehicle fails to dip its lights.

It explains this will give their eyes time to adjust and could help to prevent a motor insurance claim.

The group adds a driver should never switch to full-beam in retaliation.

In other IAM news, the organisation recently said motorists could make significant savings by making small changes to their habits behind the wheel.
