    Accident in Gillingham?


    With numerous leisure centres, jungle gyms and a journey back through time with Dickens World, Gillingham is the perfect destination for a day out with the family. However, the last thing you want is for your trip to be scarred, both physically and emotionally, by a serious accident in public.

    Staying safe in Gillingham – slips, trips and falls

    Your main weapon in the battle to stay upright in the face of trip hazards is what you wear on your feet. If you are planning a day at Monkey Bizz or Fort Amherst, for example, then well-gripped trainers are the order of the day. Wearing the right shoes can go a long way to protecting you from the embarrassment and significant physical pain from a trip or fall accident.

    Researching the weather before you go is also advisable. Torrential rain, for example, could well make some activities impossible and others substantially more dangerous.

    Staying safe in Gillingham – accidents on the road

    If you are visiting Gillingham for the first time, or are relatively unfamiliar with the road network, then it is always best to plan your journey thoroughly before you set off. The panic that can set in upon getting lost can all too easily lead to a serious incident on the road.

    It Is also advisable to leave plenty of time in which to complete your journey. Running into traffic and letting time get away from you can lead to the idea and temptation of seeking out a shortcut or trying a risky manoeuvre to set in. Again, this can quickly escalate from a small risk to a car crash or collision with another vehicle and is a set of circumstances best avoided.
