Kidderminster is the largest town in North Worcestershire and as well as being situated amongst the rich, green fields of the Midlands, the town itself has many interesting features including its surprising history of carpet production. Kidderminster boasts the only museum in the country which is dedicated to carpets and carpet making, and there are also three shopping centres and numerous arts and cultural events which take place here, including the Summer Arts Festival.
Though it’s famous for carpet making unfortunately a magic carpet won’t get you there and you will most likely enter the town from one of the main A-roads which pass through it. It is important to be vigilant when driving on these major routes as lack of concentration and planning can lead to a road traffic accident claim.
How can I avoid a road traffic accident in Kidderminster?
The main routes going to Kidderminster are surrounded by scenic countryside which makes for a highly pleasant car journey. However, driving while tired increases the chance of a road collision, so be careful to drive after a good night’s sleep, and make plenty of rest stops if you’re driving from far away.
You can avoid the risk of vehicle collisions and road traffic accidents altogether if you take the train to Kidderminster. The town is well serviced by trains from London, Birmingham and Worcester and is small enough to explore on foot so it’s not necessary to visit by car.
If you do have to drive, take the time to look over your route to and from Kidderminster to reduce the likelihood of having to make last minute decisions on the road and therefore minimise the risk of having a car accident.
How can I avoid other accidents in Kidderminster?
Like any paved town centre the streets of Kidderminster can become slippery and dangerous when wet, so avoid the likelihood of having a slip, trip, or fall by taking precautions in bad weather. Wear comfortable shoes with a thick rubber sole in rainfall to help you walk around the town safely.
