A drive through Europe with a pitstop in the UK

Did you know that in Cyprus it’s illegal to eat or drink behind the wheel? Or that in Belarus it’s forbidden to drive a dirty car? We all know that the differences between the nations of Europe are being brought to the forefront at the moment, with even the UK’s membership of the EU up for debate. Similarly, when it comes to driving, it also seems as though every country has its own quirks. This great infographic from Carspring brings to light the driving differences across the continent of Europe.

The company is an online marketplace which allows you to buy and sell used cars without leaving your home. They’re based in both Europe and the UK, with an office in London and another in Berlin. Their knowledge of the industry and their continental perspective has obviously been the driving force behind producing this fascinating research.

Looking for a used Ford for sale? If so, you’re not alone, as more than 10% of all cars on the road in Yorkshire are Fords. With the Ford Focus coming in at number one and both the Fiesta and Mondeo featuring in the top 10 best-sellers, Ford is as Yorkshire as Geoffrey Boycott, Ilkley Moor or Yorkshire Tea .

If you’re interested in the UK’s other most popular brands, by either opting for a Vauxhall for sale or a used Volkswagen, you’ll also be in line with the rest of ‘god’s own county’. These two brands manufacture 4 of our county’s top 10 selling cars, from the ever-reliable VW Golf, to the seriously economical used Vauxhall Corsa.

Whatever brand you’re looking at buying into, it’s well worth taking a look at the Carspring site to see what they have to offer. All the used cars they list on their website go through an AA-approved inspection process, come fully guaranteed and are all protected by a year’s free AA breakdown cover. What’s more, if you live in Yorkshire (or the rest of England) their anytime, anyplace delivery will drop your car at your doorstep without costing you a penny.

The company’s approach is certainly an interesting innovation in an industry where we’re all sick of the dodgy dealers, endless paperwork and tiresome trips to the other side of town.
