Wetherby, a pretty market town in West Yorkshire, has been a popular tourist spot for many years. Many people regularly make their way to Wetherby for the races, as well as to visit the surrounding countryside, throughout the year.
If you’re driving to Wetherby from Prescot via the A58, make sure you enjoy your trip to the maximum, and take some precautions to avoid suffering a car accident en route.
How can I prevent suffering a car accident on the A58?
Nobody wants to suffer a car crash while on holiday, therefore if you’re making a trip to Wetherby, take the steps below to avoid suffering a collision on the road.
- Don’t drive tired: Tiredness accounts for an estimated 20 per cent of all car accidents on major roads, according to the UK Department of Transport. Therefore ensure you get a good sleep the night before setting off.
- Know your route: Take the time to go over your journey before leaving, and keep a map in the car so you can correct your route if you go off track. If you can, use a satellite navigation system to avoid having to make last minute decisions on the road.
- Keep children busy: If you have little ones in the back, minimise any distractions by keeping them entertained with games or films. This will help keep you focused on the road.
