Film Vehicle Breakdowns: Have you ever broken down on the side of the road because of an avoidable issue? If you have, you’re definitely not the only one. Each year, Highways England deal with more than 85,000 breakdowns on the roads they patrol. Many of these are caused by problems regular maintenance could have solved quickly and with ease.
In fact, in the last two years alone, more than 40 per cent of the Film Vehicle breakdowns Highways England attended were due to vehicles running out of fuel, poor tyre maintenance, power loss and engine trouble.
It seems as though Hollywood is reflecting reality – and the folks at Halfords delved into 27 films featuring on screen breakdowns to see what vehicle maintenance lessons we all can learn from the cinematic world.
They’ve asked and answered all these questions and more and discovered that an eye-popping 89% of these Film Vehicle breakdowns took place in America…Hollywood ‘ey! Not only this but our findings show the importance of regular tyre checks. Films such as The Hills Have Eyes and The Rocky Horror Picture Show saw their characters get in a spot of bother as a result of flat tyres.
