Ludborough, a small parish village in Lincolnshire, is so pretty and peaceful that it’s no surprise that many people from nearby Doncaster want to visit.
The easiest way to get to Ludborough from Doncaster is undoubtedly by car, as it is a short journey that shouldn’t take much longer than an hour. However, if you do decide to set off on the A18 to Ludborough, take some steps to avoid having a road accident on the way.
Avoiding accidents on the A18
The best way to avoid suffering a road traffic accident on the A18, or on any other highway, is to ensure you are well prepared before setting off.
Although the journey from Doncaster to Ludborough is not a long one, car crashes can happen in seconds, so ensure that when you set off you are not driving tired. According to the Department for Transport, tiredness is the cause of 20 per cent of car accidents in the UK, so make sure you are travelling after at good night’s rest.
Additionally, it is worth taking a map, or using a satellite navigation system, to avoid getting lost and having to make last minute decisions on the road. This will greatly help to reduce your chances of suffering a personal injury on the road.
Furthermore, minimise distractions and be alert at all times to avoid having a car crash. Always check your mirrors before manoeuvring, and avoid being distracted by little ones in the back by keeping them entertained with music or films.
