When you think of the West End in London, bright lights and the sounds of the stage come to mind. It’s quite simply one of the cultural capitals of the world. Yet, despite these amazing qualities, the dire traffic in the West End cannot be ignored.
Road accidents and traffic in the West End
As a pedestrian holidaying in the Big Smoke, when you are walking through London’s West End there is always a risk of experiencing a road traffic accident.
Generally speaking, to stay safe and avoid pedestrian-related road accidents, it is important to apply common sense and use the roads with caution.
Don’t be tempted to walk through traffic. Always use pedestrian crossings where possible and wait for a natural gap in the road before crossing to the other side. As tempting as it may be to rush across the road for that matinee, it isn’t worth experiencing a road accident.
If you can, ditch dodging around the maze of the West End streets too. Head underground and make use of the Tube system for getting from A to B. This can greatly minimise the risk of road accidents, getting you away from the traffic in the West End, and quickly near to your point of interest.
