Avoiding The Dangers of Modifying Your Car
Car modifications come in all shapes and sizes but there remains a worrying trend that poor decisions are making the practice dangerous for some.
The worst thing that can happen is your car parts breaking down in the middle of driving. This can cause serious danger even to the vehicles around you. Modifications can interfere or disrupt the system.
Make a bed in the back seat. It’s perfectly legal to sleep in your car, as long as you stick to a couple of rules: You must be safely parked. In a crash, if you're not wearing a seat belt, could cause severe injury or death.
There are benefits to window tinting, tindow tint blocks harmful UV Ray. According to experts, 40% tint is an excellent option as it blocks the harsh glare, UV rays, and heat to make your driving experience safer. Dark window tints are a clear danger and illegal according to the law. (Article 277 Law No. 22 of 2009 concerning Road Traffic and Transportation, Republic of Indonesia).
What happens if your windows are too dark?
This reduces your visibility as you drive, especially at night or when it is raining; this will make it more dangerous for you to drive and could potentially result in an accident.
Vehicles that are modified without taking into account the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) have the potential to endanger the driver, passengers and other road users.
Fuel Efficient Driving Tips
Efficient car fuel is certainly the desire of all vehicle owners to save costs.
Fuel economy is not solely influenced by engine configuration and vehicle specifications. Another factor that can make fuel efficient is the user's driving style.
Keeping Car Speed
One way to drive fuel efficient cars is to maintain speed. A fast vehicle speed will make fuel wasteful when compared to a constant speed of 60-80 km per hour.
Keeping Car Engine Spin
To keep the car's fuel efficient, the driver must keep the engine in low revs. Engine performance at high rpm or RPM above 2,000 will make the vehicle suck up more fuel.
Precise Gear Shift
In manual transmission cars, the driver must shift gears appropriately to make the fuel used not too much. The habit of shifting gears late will make the engine RPM high so that it wastes fuel.
Maximize Engine Brake
Another way to save on car fuel is to maximize the engine brake when reducing the car's speed. Drivers are required to know the path taken in order to know the best time to reduce engine speed so as not to use the brakes suddenly.
Avoid Sudden Acceleration and Braking or Stop and Go
Car drivers need to maintain a constant speed while driving on the roads. Avoid sudden acceleration (step on the gas) or sudden braking to keep your car fuel efficient.
Bring the load according to the capacity of the car, do not overdo it. Stereo equipment, luggage on top of a car or large Velk turns out to be more free than passengers or bags.
What to Know About Lending Your Car
There are times you may want to help out a friend, or may not be in a state to drive yourself. It’s normal to want to lend you car, or let someone else drive. But, unfortunately, Vehicle Insurance can deny policyholders’ claims if your friend/family /driver is at fault for the accident or stolen car. Vehicle Insurance can deny your claim if your friend/family/driver were in violation of state law when the accident happened. One example of that would be driving without a valid license. Another is if you were driving while intoxicated.
If the car is lend to a friend, driver or family according to your permission and approval, then when the car is lost, commits a crime or is damaged in an accident, Vehicle Insurance can reject the claim according to the Indonesian Motor Vehicle Insurance Standard Policy Chapter II article 1.3 concerning Exceptions, article theft and/or malicious acts committed by: spouses, children, parents or siblings of the Insured; people working for the Insured, people with the knowledge or with the consent of the Insured.

Does Car Insurance Cover Landslides?
Aside from the danger of flooding, heavy rainfall can also lead to mudflow, basically creating a river of mud; and landslides, which are caused by the movement of the destabilized land—due either to gradual erosion or an accumulation of water. Does your auto insurance policy provide coverage for landslides?
Insurance shall not cover any loss of, damage to and/or expense incurred in Motor Vehicle and/or legal liability against any third party directly or indirectly caused by, as a consequence of, resulting from: earthquake, volcanic eruption, windstorm, tempest, tsunami, hail, flood, inundation, landslide or other geological or meteorological symptoms (Motor Vehicle Insurance Standard Policy in Indonesia chapter 2, Exclusion, article 3, point 3.2).
Like flood, however, earthquake and landslide is excluded from standard car insurance policies—you must buy the coverage separately. Please call 021- 50508080 for more information.
