Simon HillTotal Motion applauds police use of public dash cams in fight against bad driving

Total Motion has applauded Police use of dash cam footage taken by the public in the ongoing fight against bad and dangerous driving on Britain’s roads.

With traffic police numbers falling by more than 25 per cent in the past six years due to Government cuts, we believe that installing dash cam is a sensible way of bringing lawless motorists to justice, as well as protecting drivers from fraudulent accident claims.

Simon HillWe call for a reform of entire motor insurance claims market

The Government is currently considering proposals which would clamp down on road accident related whiplash and other minor soft tissue injury compensation claims.

As part of its reform plans, the Ministry of Justice is focusing on what defines a minor soft tissue injury and whether this definition should be linked to the length of time a claimant suffers symptoms.

One proposal suggests scrapping the ability for people to recover damages for Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenity (known as PSLA) for minor soft tissue injuries.

Simon HillWe welcome tougher speeding fines

We welcome recent changes to the most serious speeding offences, whereby drivers caught speeding far in excess of the limit will now be hit with a 50 per cent higher fine under Sentencing Council rules which came into force on April 24.

Simon Hill, managing director, said: “Speed limits are in place for very good reasons and drivers who ignore them, particularly at excessive speeds, are putting lives in jeopardy and risking catastrophic accidents”.

“Hopefully these new rules will act as a deterrent and encourage the minority who break the law to follow the example of the majority who drive safely and observe the limit.”

The Sentencing Council initiative aims to cut the number of high speed accidents, reflecting the seriousness with which the courts view the worst offences.

We are urging drivers using backless boosters for children shorter than 125cm or weighing less than 22k to change the seats in the wake of a recent rule which bans their production.

Simon Hill, Director, said that the use of the backless models is not against the law and the products are still available to buy.

But he stressed that parents should switch to high backed boosters as soon as possible following research which found they were likely to offer greater protection in a collision.

The height and weight stipulated represents the average size of a seven-year-old.
