How advanced driver assistance systems affect you plus independents have their say on petrol and diesel sales ban

GW Views autumn issue out now with latest industry news comments and reactions
The autumn issue of GW Views, GW's quarterly digital magazine, is available to read for free.
The latest issue of Garage Wire’s free digital magazine for independent garages, GW Views is now available.

The government’s announcement that it is to end the sale of all new conventional petrol and diesel cars by 2040 truly split opinion for garage owners and technicians.

There’s the results of a GW reader poll on page 8 and we chat to workshops across the country to reveal the reaction of independent service and repair workshops in this issue’s hot topic on page 19.

You’ll be all too aware about the pace of technological innovation within the motor industry so it raises the question if the announcement really was that much of a surprise?

GW’s editor, Mike Ruff recently attended a HELLA GUTMANN SOLUTIONS course on advanced driver assistance systems – systems that are already widely fitted to cars on our roads and systems that are fast paving the way for autonomous driving.

However, experts told GW that a shocking number of garages remain blissfully unaware that the vehicles they are currently working on could have advanced driver assistance systems fitted and that routine service and maintenance work on these vehicles could have a detrimental effect on these systems.

Flick to page 23 and take a look at this GWTV report to ensure you’re clued up on advanced driver assist technology.

Also featured in this issue, there’s reader reviews covering the Philips range of LED workshop lamps, the TOUGH by Swarfega skin care range of products and a suspension arm lever by Laser Tools, plus a review of brake brand, Textar.
