Every year Highways England traffic officers deal with more than 85,000 breakdowns on the roads they patrol.
In the last two years, over 40 per cent of these breakdowns were caused by vehicles running out of fuel, tyre maintenance, power loss and engine trouble.
Highways England recommend carrying out a few quick and easy checks to ensure you and your vehicle are safely equipped to drive. Having a roadworthy vehicle can also save you time and money in the future.
