When driving around Britain or anywhere you need to be careful in order to avoid a road traffic accident. However, one such route you need to be especially careful on is the route from London to St Ives.
What types of car accidents occur on this route?
A variety of car collisions can occur on this route. The main causes of these road traffic accidents can range from driver tiredness due to the length of the journey to drivers going too fast.
This journey from start to finish takes on average over five hours to get to St Ives and so driver tiredness can be a big factor in car accidents. As well as this, a large part of the route is made up of motorways which at any time of the day can have road traffic accidents occurring on them due to the lack of corners thus allowing driver’s concentration to drift as well as the high speeds.
How to avoid a car accident whilst en route to St Ives
Before leaving for a long journey such as this always make sure you are prepared in order to prevent a car crash. This means planning your route and taking supplies in the car such as water and food in case you break down.
By being prepared you should in theory be less stressed out and less likely to get lost thus making you less likely to have a car collision.
As well as this ensure you take regular breaks as you drive to keep your energy levels up. This will help prevent you from having a car accident, making it easier for you to remain focussed on the road ahead. If you find your attention wandering, make sure you pull over and take a break or if you can’t pull over right then open a window for some fresh air and stop when it is safe to do so.
Unfortunately the route from London to St Ives can be car accident prone. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident on this route or any route within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
