SWITCH TO TWO WHEELS AND BEAT AUTUMN TRAFFIC TAILBACKS, URGES HPI

September 18 2014

Vehicle information expert HPI is urging British motorists to consider swapping their cars for motorbikes this autumn to beat the winter gridlock.

 Why? According to recent research, riding a motorcycle – rather than driving a car – is the best way to ease congestion. An experiment which saw the number of motorcycles increased on a busy commuter road revealed that when 10% of the traffic was changed from cars to motorbikes, overall journey times were reduced by 63%. When 25% of the traffic was switched from cars to motorbikes, congestion was completely eliminated. Not only could this alleviate rush hour headaches, but reduce the impact of harmful emissions on the environment.

ROCK RIDES HIGH

September 17 2014.

Fresh from a record year of financial results, Rock Oil, the Warrington-based, lubricants and allied products manufacturer has invested in another bespoke 120,000 litre storage vessel. Next month sees the addition of a further 90,000 litres of storage, bringing the total increase since June to 300,000 litres.


Increased sales in all sectors, including its ever-growing specialist motorcycle products sector, has accelerated the company’s re-investment programme and the company now boasts in excess of 2.2 million litres of storage capacity at the Warrington plant.

Rock continued to develop its motorcycle products range and [stop]will be announcing further new products this Autumn.
