Driving round London can be very stressful. This is because whatever time you go it is always very busy and due to the volume of traffic the risk of a road traffic accident increases. One such intersection in London which is particularly dangerous and more at risk of car crashes occurring is the area between the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.
Why is this intersection more at risk of car accidents?
The main reason is because traffic near this intersection often slows down to look at these historic buildings. This not only causes congestion meaning more traffic jams but those that are admiring these buildings will be less focussed on the road ahead and those around them, which is when road traffic accidents occur.
How to avoid a car accident when travelling along these roads
If you want to avoid a car crash especially on this intersection the most important thing you can do is stay focussed on the road and always be aware of those around you. The more focused you are on the roads ahead the more likely you are to be able to spot any potential car crash hazards. If you want to admire the buildings, pull over if it is safe to do so and stop. If you can’t stop then find somewhere to park and walk to the buildings.
If you are looking at Westminster Abbey or the Houses of Parliament and not at the road you may not notice the driver in front slamming their brakes on or that pedestrian crossing in front of you. Taking your eyes off such a busy road even for a small amount of time can easily cause a road traffic accident.
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that specialises in such cases as driver injury claims.
