    One in three motorists polled by www.motorinsurance.co.uk say that they would leave their correct details, but not because it is the right thing to do. For 23% of motorists, the fear of being seen would make them honest; with a further 14% worried about being caught on CCTV.

    It’s a great little car, but there’s just one thing that annoys me about it. It’s the indicator stalks. They don’t click down, they just sort of move a little bit. I know it’s a bit pathetic, but it really put me off the car.

    Busy day yesterday. Went to Company Car In Action (www.companycarinaction.co.uk), a fleet managers’ driving day put on by our sister magazine Fleet News. I am keen to see if there’s a way AM can get involved by bringing along our own readers to drive the cars.
