    Most dangerous roads in Preston


    Preston, one of the UK’s newer cities and is located in Lancashire in the North West of England.

    Known locally for its fabulous shopping amenities, an array of job opportunities, convenient higher education facilities and some of the best nightlife that Lancashire has to offer, Preston is a bustling area of the north.

    Road accidents in Preston

    This busyness does lend itself to a few issues, however, one of which being the increased chance of experiencing a road traffic accident.

    Wherever there is a vast flow of traffic, young drivers, distracted commuters and high number of pedestrians, road accidents are more likely to occur, and Preston is no exception to this rule.

    Problem roads in Preston

    Historically, Preston has been involved in some of the worst road traffic accidents seen in the UK. On 28 October 1987, 12 people were killed on the M61 motorway as a diesel truck collided with stand-still traffic.

    Today, the A6, which runs through Preston on its route from Luton to Carlisle is believed to be one of the most dangerous roads in the UK. Junction 32, which lies within Preston, is one of the most complex interchanges of the stretch.

    This often leads to road-users becoming confused, distracted from the traffic around them, which causes road traffic accidents.

    Information to obtain following a road traffic accident

    When you are involved in a car collision, there are various pieces of information to collate for legal purposes. This includes:

    • Third party driver contact information
    • Registration plate numbers for all vehicles involved
    • Insurance policy number for any third party drivers
    • Police report numbers and a completed collision pack
    • Photographs of any damage to all involved vehicles
    • Witness contact information and statement, where possible

    It is also important to remain calm and call the necessary emergency services should you require any help at the scene of the road traffic accident.

    Gathering this information will not only help you with regards to your insurance, it can also be helpful should you wish to claim personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.
