    Avoiding accidents: M23 London to Brighton


    Stretching just over 50 miles long, the journey from London to Brighton, via the M23 and A23, has long been regarded as a trip that encompasses all open-road excitement factors.

    Associated with motoring enjoyment and participator events since the beginning of the 20th Century, the M23 and A23 are still used for many rallies, including the annual London to Brighton classic car rally.

    A23 to M23

    The first part of the journey, joining the M23 from the A23 in London, is usually dogged by heavy traffic. Delays are often responsible for motoring accidents caused by frustrated drivers. To prevent being involved in a road traffic accident on this stretch, drivers need to watch other road users closely, clearly indicate their intentions to other drivers, and generally remain vigilant and calm on the road.

    The M23

    Once on the M23, the going gets a little easier, although traffic may still be fairly heavy. Accidents on the M23 can be avoided by driving responsibly, taking necessary rest breaks, and keeping a safe distance between vehicles.

    Having fun

    After bypassing Crawley, the M23 reverts back into the A23, which from here on not only features stretches of top quality dual carriageway, but also some interesting corners and hills. While these scenic and interesting corners are great fun to navigate in good weather, they can be treacherous in wet or wintry conditions.

    To prevent accidents on the road, it is subsequently necessary to be sensible and adjust speeds and driving styles to suit prevalent weather conditions. Tearing across the South Downs at break-neck speeds regardless of the weather could all too easily end in potentially serious car crashes.

    Final approach

    The last stretch of the A23 before heading into Brighton via the A27 is a long, straight stretch framed by iconic stone pillars.

    As straight and scenic as this final approach may be, drivers wishing to avoid traffic accidents must remain alert, maintain a responsible style of driving, and adjust speeds to suit both traffic volume and weather conditions.

    Too much enjoyment

    Unfortunately, some drivers enjoy the thrills of tracing this route too much to consider the safety of other road users or even that of their passengers. As a result, many drivers and passengers are injured in car or motorcycling accidents on the M23 and A23.

    If you sustained a personal injury in a motorcycling or car accident caused by someone else, retrieve the passenger or driver injury compensation you deserve by allowing a no-win no-fee Accident Advice Helpline lawyer to handle your case.
