With money and household budgets tight it seems that more people are skimping not just on servicing their cars but are neglecting to replace blown headlights. So called “one eyed monsters” are a threat to road users and of concern to the Road Safety Authority and the Automobile Association.
The AA will be doing an on-line survey for this programme on the issue of faulty lights and will have details for us on that next week. We did our own mini survey one night recently at a main road junction and found 15 cars with only one light working, in the space of fifteen minutes.
Conor Faughnan Director of Consumer Affairs of the AA joined Pat this morning.
