How to escape from your car if you are caught in a flash flood

Saving your life can be as easy as turning your car around when you see water on the road. However, as we have experienced in Gauteng this past week, when the rain comes down in buckets, water levels can rise extremely quickly. Even in relatively shallow water, tyres can act as flotation devices - lifting up even big vehicles and sending them downstream. It can take just 60 cm of moving water to move a vehicle and carry it away - even if you are in an SUV! Despite your best efforts, you could f

"There is no security in life, only opportunity" - Mark Twain We all want security in life, however, we often make the mistake to believe that we will find security by looking for security. It's in the chasing

How to avoid buying a water-damaged car

We welcome the rain filling up our dams and reservoirs, especially with the current water restrictions - however, we can't ignore the damage that can be caused by storms and floods. Flood water can potentially cause severe damage to our cars that is often hard to spot once the car has dried.

Damage to airbags - in some cases resulting in them opening unexpectedl

Being strapped up ain't so bad!

Let's be real, many of us still don't like the idea of being strapped to our seats as we cruise down the road… but can you imagine the repercussions of not doing so and finding yourself recovering from collision-related injuries that could have been prevented or avoided? Truth is, the function of seat belts is still widely misunderstood in this day and age. Ever made the mistake of putting your seat belts behind you and sitting closer to the steering wheel? Or not sitting upright when dr
