This road can often be a busy route at the best of times and the more traffic there is the higher the risk of becoming involved in a road traffic accident. Here are some tips to avoid a car accident en route:
- Plan well ahead and leave plenty of time to avoid a car crash
Make sure that you plan at least a day in advance and that you know where you are going and what route you are taking. Also leave plenty of time to get to your destination so that you avoid rushing thus avoiding a potential car collision.
- Take something to keep you calm
Find something that keeps you calm and use this on the journey, especially if it is a long one. The longer you are at the wheel the easier it is to become agitated and stressed especially in traffic so to avoid a road accident use whatever helps to calm you. This could be a CD or a chocolate bar or something even more simple, such as some fresh air through the window.
- If you have kids, keep them busy
Long journeys can be stressful and car accident prone enough, but add kids into the mix and stress levels run even higher. Take plenty to keep them amused from books to music to any handheld gaming devices. The more they have in the back to amuse them, the less likely they are to distract you thus potentially cause a road traffic accident.
However, if you have had a car accident within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault whether you were travelling via the A12 or any other road, you may be able to make a car collision claim.
