    A14 East Midlands to Felixstowe: avoiding accidents


    The A14 is a 127 mile-long road connecting Suffolk with Warwickshire, through the East Midlands.  A number of serious road traffic accidents have occurred along the A14 and it’s important to try and avoid an accident en route.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we operate throughout the entirety of the UK, and specialise in all areas of personal injury compensation, including road traffic collisions. As such, we are well aware of simple measures that can be taken to minimise the risk of road traffic accidents.

    Before leaving

    Effective planning is the key to avoiding an accident. Before you set off, perform a check of your car or vehicle for any noticeable defects which might cause an accident. This includes checking the tyre pressure and tread depth. A faulty tyre could cause a blowout on the A14, which can be extremely serious due to the sudden loss of steering at high speeds. Tyres must have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm.

    Top up the washer bottle with screen washer fluid and perform a quick check of your wiper blades. Worn wiper blades may cause smearing or streaking of the windscreen. This is caused by the rubber coming loose from the wiper arm and can obstruct vision in adverse weather conditions.

    Keep well informed

    Keep yourself up to date with the latest traffic and travel conditions when en route. Local radio can be an extremely useful resource to help avoid congested areas and reduce the chances of being involved in a car accident.
