Flat batteries biggest lockdown assistance issue

Flat batteries were the biggest reason for callouts to Allianz Partners roadside assistance during April-June, writes Brian Byrne.

That represented an almost 72pc increase compared to the same period in 2019.

On the other hand, due to the pandemic restrictions, roadside car recoveries and repairs were down significantly.

Allianz Partners handles some 45pc of the roadside assistance calls in this country, and is currently celebrating 30 years in business here.
