A few hours before the big Easter procession and everything shows how it will be even bigger in recent years. What does this mean; That tens of thousands of cars will flood the national roads and what this means for the increase in traffic and also the events that will occur.

The point, of course, is to prepare in advance so that we don’t have unpleasant developments.

Usually in every big exit there are many cars that have no power and unexpected explosions. Considering the age of ships in Greece, which exceeds 17 years, it is good to prepare our car for departure.

No we will not take it to war but it is impossible to leave for a long trip with worn tires for example or without checking its oil and other fluids.

It is surprising the fact that most of the damage that road safety is called is related to the poor maintenance of vehicles.

According to Hellas direct, more than half of the cases (58.2%) who called needed roadside assistance, they did so because their car had a technical fault.

One in four (25.5%) called roadside assistance because they ran out of battery and almost one in ten (9.5%) because they had a flat tire. We also have two very small percentages, one 0.6% refers to cars that got stuck or got stuck somewhere and had to be pulled by a crane and 0.5% that forgot to put gas (and see the gauge) or did not count anyway. correctly.

There are three important reasons why roadside assistance is often called:

  • The older the car, the higher the percentage of mechanical failures among the reasons for calling Roadside Assistance. From 38% in cars up to 5 years old, that percentage jumps to 61% in cars 16 to 25 years old, and continues to grow to 68% – that’s almost 7 out of 10 phones! – when they get old.
  • The newer the car, the higher the battery percentage as a reason to call for roadside assistance. In cars up to 5 years old, the percentage reaches 33% and decreases as the car grows and finally reaches 15%.
  • The newer the car, the higher the percentage of those who get behind the wheel and need roadside assistance. From 30%, in vehicles up to 5 years old, the percentage decreases according to age to 11%, 8%, 6% and finally to 3.2%.
