It really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been driving and you might think you are very competent behind the wheel, different roads throw up different risks and dangers and you should always expect the unexpected.
Motorway driving may be daunting to some but driving along other major roads can be just as dangerous if you don’t know what you are looking out for. Major roads such as this are often the scene of road traffic accidents due to their unpredictable nature, and the sheer nature of the M62, which winds across the Pennies, can mean it is extremely treacherous both in the daytime and after dark.
Avoiding accidents on the M62
You can never be sure that you will avoid an accident when you are driving due to the unpredictable nature of motoring, but there are a few things you can do to reduce your chances of being involved in a road traffic accident on the M62:
- Check the weather forecast for any potential problems that might make your journey dangerous
- Reduce your speed when driving at night or during busy times of the day
- Keep a safe distance from the car in front
- Maintain concentration at all times and not using electrical devices
- Use your headlights and sidelights to make yourself more visible to other motorists
Despite these precautions, accidents on the road are always danger, and if you have been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault, the consequences can be life altering.
You may be entitled to claim compensation claim if you’ve been hurt in a road accident that wasn’t your fault in the last three years.
