Lease inspectors know what the police know

The police have their little tricks to see what kind of driver you are, lease inspectors know these tricks too.

If you ever get stopped by the police, and they are wondering if they should let you off with a warning or give you a ticket, they may have a quick look around your car.

They will look at the front wheels, because they know that if you are heavy on the accelerator, you will also need to be heavy on the brakes. If there is a lot of brake dust on your wheels, they will know you are a speedy driver.

They will also take a look at the front of the car for stone chips. Everyone gets a few stone chips, but aggressive drivers tend to driver too close to the car in front, and this will cause them to get lots.

Lease inspectors know this too and if they see any etching from brake dust on your wheels, or excessive stone chips, they may pay closer attention to your car.

But the big takeaway you should get from this information relates to the stone chips. If you wish to avoid them, slow down, and keep your distance.
