The A11 between London and Norwich has been partly downgraded, while other parts have been improved through the implementation of a dual carriageway system. Crossing many other main roads in the area and typically subject to high traffic volume, this road needs to be navigated with the greatest care and attention if a road traffic accident is to be avoided.
- Junctions and roundabouts
Naturally, drivers wishing to prevent a road accident should approach junctions and roundabouts carefully, watching other road users closely and giving right of way as and when necessary. Getting into the correct lane and signalling to other drivers which way you are heading is equally of the utmost importance in the prevention of vehicle collisions.
- Speed limits
Some stretches of this road have been demoted to B-road status. Drivers need to take note of and adhere to relevant speed limits to avoid causing road accidents.
- High traffic volumes
If the amount of traffic is likely to cause delays on your journey, it is better to set off earlier rather than try to make up for lost time by taking unnecessary risks. Speeding or overtaking on bends, for example, is not an option if you wish to avoid being involved in a road accident.
- Alternative routes
Heavy traffic can cause drivers to become impatient and drive without the due care and attention necessary to prevent car accidents. To avoid this problem, drivers are also advised to take appropriate alternative routes, like the M11, for example.
