Arguably the most pinnacle area of the A52, the Lincolnshire seaside town of Mablethorpe is a popular destination for days out, weekends away and family holidays, especially during spring and summer.
Over four miles of virtually unbroken coastline, sandy beaches and attractions like the Dunes Fairground, Seal Sanctuary and Queen’s Park, as well as a cinema and amusement arcades, bars, clubs and pubs, Mablethorpe has something to cater for every traveller’s taste.
Stoke to Mablethorpe
Many people travelling from Stoke to Mablethorpe use the A52. With long stretches of narrow road, tight corners and ‘turn-off-to-stay-on sections along the way, this comparatively poorly-maintained road requires every moment of a driver’s attention if accidents on the road are to be prevented.
Inconsistent renumbering of the A52 in varying locations also does little to help drivers, as confusion as to whether you are actually still on the right road or have lost your way could easily lead to traffic accidents. The frustration of having to take potentially long detours as a result of such confusion could also lead to driving errors causing car or motorcycling accidents.
Preventing detours and mishaps
The first way of preventing a road traffic accident on the way from Stoke to Mablethorpe is to plan your journey thoroughly and, if possible, use a SatNav, which may actually lead you along much safer, quicker roads.
Naturally, it is essential to ensure you drive responsibly, observing speed limits, height restrictions and general traffic rules along the way in order to avoid motoring accidents.
The trip from Stoke to Mablethorpe via the A52 will take approximately just under three hours. High traffic density during peak times, especially during Easter and summer holidays, can easily double this time.
To prevent car accidents caused by fatigue, it is vital to take regular breaks along the way. Although the road is not classed as a primary route all the way, there are plenty of rest stops, transport cafés and garages offering refreshments dotted along the way.
If your holiday plans are ruined by vehicle collisions and you suffer an injury in the process, you could be entitled to driver or passenger injury compensation.
