Great new for all transport providers. The chancellor has announced the planned 3p hike in fuel duty for september will be scrapped which will be very welcoming to all our ears. For many fleet operators, fuel is one of the biggest expenses. This means any fluctuation in costs can have serious knock of effects for other areas of the business. All we need now is a very long over due decrease in fuel prices!…We can hope!

With the support of British servicemen and women being something very close to our hearts we are pleased to promote the fledgling British Forces Network site. The network is an online community for ex and serving members of the British Forces provides a resource for Forces Personnel to connect with other members including non-forces such as family, friends and those interested in the armed forces. The site provides a number of features allowing its users to socialise, meet people, buy & sell items as well as keep up to date with news, events and discounts available to members of the forces. The forums offer a variety of topics for all aspects of forces life and a pub forum for those looking for general chat where any discussion is welcome. There is also a forces family forum where loved ones can come together to support others or seek advice and help.

We’ve all been there happily traveling along and then some idiot decides they need to in your lane or taking the exit and just cut you up. Well up until now you may have just said a few curse words and had a bit of a rant to your fellow passenger about how some people are a menace and shouldn’t be on the road. In some cases this is probably true however if we’re honest the majority of us have probably lost our concentration and accidentally got ourselves into the wrong lane or cut someone up at a roundabout at some point.
Local Councils have said the increase in the number of potholes in England and Wales is due to a lack of funding to repair them.
