    Avoiding accidents: A3 London to Portsmouth


    After a fatal road traffic accident on New Year’s Day 2015 on the A3, we decided it was a good time to write a short article reminding our blog readers of the importance of staying safe on the roads.

    Here are some of Accident Advice Helpline’s top tips when it comes to avoiding an accident on the A3.

    Adequate preparation

    Before embarking upon any journey, it’s important to perform a number of checks on your vehicle. Ensure that the tyre pressure is in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. This will vary depending on the size of the vehicle and the profile of the tyres used. Ensure that there are no bulges or rips on the sidewalls of the tyres which may cause a catastrophic blowout.

    Consider bringing a bottle of water with you to combat the effects of dehydration when driving and to keep your concentration levels up.

    Keeping up to date with the latest traffic and travel

    It’s important to keep up to date with the latest traffic and travel conditions. Not only can avoiding congested areas save you time and money when travelling, but can also help to reduce the chances of an accident when stuck in traffic.

    Modify your driving

    Speeding reduces the time you have to react to a situation and increases the likelihood of being involved in a serious collision. The faster you are going, the harder it is to slow down. Ensure that you keep within the designated speed limits.

    Ensure that you are driving with both hands on the wheel at a ‘ten to two position’ to guarantee that you have maximum control over the vehicle.
