Every year hundreds of motorists choose to take the M20 from London to Dover, in order to hop on the ferry to Calais or elsewhere.
Travelling to Europe in this way has been popular with British tourists for many years due to its ease and efficiency. The majority of people will make their way to the busy port by car. Therefore, before you set off on your journey, it is wise to take some precautions to avoid suffering a road traffic accident en route.
How can I avoid an accident on the M20?
There are a number of steps you can take to avoid a road traffic collision en route to Dover. Firstly, ensure that your journey is planned well in advance to avoid getting lost. Take a comprehensive road map along with you, or even better a satellite navigation system, to avoid having to make any last minute decisions on the road
If you’re travelling with little ones in the back, keep them entertained with games or films, so that they won’t be a distraction from the road.
Additionally, ensure that you have a good night’s sleep the night before setting off. This will ensure you are not driving tired, which will greatly reduce your chances of suffering a car crash due to fatigue.
What should I do if I have had an accident on the M20?
If you have had a car accident on the M20 that was no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation.
