    Avoiding accidents: M25 Orbiting London

    The M25 is a 117-mile stretch of motorway which almost encompasses the entirety of Greater London. It is in fact one of the busiest motorways in the UK with an average daily throughput of well over 100,000 vehicles.

    The M25 has in the past been subject to much criticism regarding the many traffic jams that occur on the road and is sometimes jokingly referred to as the world’s first circular car park. Due to the sheer amount of traffic on the the M25, a road traffic accident is always likely to occur.

    Here are some top tips from Accident Advice Helpline on how to avoid an accident on the M25.

    Before setting off

    Before setting off on any long journey, it’s important to make a thorough inspection of your car or vehicle. Perhaps the most important thing to check is the condition of your tyres. Check your tyres for the correct pressure according to the manufacturer and ensure that there is no excessive wear on the tread. Excessive tyre wear can increase stopping distance and significantly hamper steering when driving.

    It is also a good idea to check your oil level and washer fluid level.

    Adhere to the Highway Code

    It’s important to adhere to the Highway Code when driving in order to prevent a road traffic accident. Check your mirrors before signalling and ensure you don’t impede other road users when making a manoeuvre.

    Remember that stopping distances increase in wet and icy conditions, so it’s important to leave a large enough gap between you and the vehicle travelling in front.

    Injured as the result of an accident on the M25

    Have you been injured as the result of an accident on the M25 within the last three years, that wasn’t your fault?

    With Accident Advice Helpline, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. We are one of the UK’s leading law firms when it comes to all areas of personal injury compensation, including road traffic collisions.

    We understand that compensation may not take away the pain and trauma of an accident but it can help to alleviate the financial difficulties that arise as the result of a car accident, such as a loss of income caused by time taken off work.
