    London’s most dangerous cycle spots: Parliament Square

    London’s most dangerous cycle spots: Parliament Square

    Cycling around London can be a dangerous thing to do. However, many cyclists take to the streets of the capital city as it is greener and a lot cheaper than taking public transport or driving. There are many different cycle lanes to make it safer on the roads but there are still many dangerous cycle spots where road traffic accidents are more likely to occur. One of London’s dangerous cycle spots is Parliament Square.

    Why is Parliament Square more accident prone?

    This area of London is one of the busier locations around the city and busy roads make road traffic accidents more likely. As well as this, Parliament Square is a more dangerous spot for cyclists because it is one of the places drivers and tourists tend to slow down near to get a view of the Houses of Parliament. This means the drivers are often distracted thus car crashes are much more likely as they may not notice those around them.

    How to help prevent a road traffic accident for a cyclist

    There are many different things you can do in order to help prevent a road traffic accident but the main one to remember is to make sure you are always aware of those around you. This will mean that you will be able to pre-empt if you spot a driver slowing down or driving erratically because their attention is elsewhere.

    Unfortunately cycle and car collisions can and do still occur. So, if you are cycling around London always make sure you are wearing the appropriate safety equipment including a helmet so that if a road traffic accident occurs the injuries are less likely to be as serious. Also, make sure you wear reflective clothing so that you are more visible to the drivers on the road to help prevent a car collision.

    If you have had a cycle or car collision within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim. Accident Advice Helpline specialises in such claims as road traffic accidents. With years of experience our team of expert lawyers will make the claims process as simple and stress free as possible. In fact, many clients are able to settle their car crash claim without stepping foot in court.
