Modern cars though bristling with technology are also as a result simply crammed full of chips. We could argue all day as to whether all those chips are completely necessary but there are literally chips now whose only purpose in life is to check that other chips are working, and I am not exaggerating. The chips that would not be disputed are those involved in safety and modern cars are now safer than ever before as a result of them.
Relying on Technology
There are inevitable consequences both good and bad when you rely so heavily on the latest technology, the more complex you make something the more opportunities you factor in for something to go wrong. A more immediate problem which has been widely publicised is that manufacturers of vehicles are being held up in production by a global shortage of chips. Though it seems to stand to reason that if the manufacture of vehicles is so badly affected then surely the vehicle repair facilities must be too.
Costly Vehicle Repairs
This will over time lead to hold ups with repairs and added costs as garages and dealerships must commit more resources in simply sourcing the chips, they need to complete the repairs. However, there is an answer that will help you personally avoid all these added problems and that’s “Innocent Driver” as if we are able to take your case, we ensure that the repairs are completed by the offending driver’s insurance and not yours.
What To Do if You Are Involved in a Vehicle Accident.
So, if you are unlucky enough to be involved in a vehicle accident which you believe to be the other road users fault you need to contact us before you involve your own insurance. You will not have to pay any excess on your own insurance policy, and it will not affect your no claims bonus. We can also provide you with a replacement vehicle whilst yours is being repaired so if there are extra hold ups due to chip shortages it won’t affect you.
At this point you are probably thinking “why didn’t I know about this sooner?” but the good thing is you know now. The important thing is not to forget it, so make a note of our details today so should this happen to you its close to hand.
