    Rising number of accidents due to Sat Navs

    If you’re a driver, you run the risk of being involved in a road traffic accident every time you get behind the wheel. Even if you’re an experienced, careful driver, there may be hazards you encounter that affect your ability to maintain control of the vehicle. Today, drivers also face additional distractions. In the last few years, for example, there has been an increase in accidents due to Sat Navs. If you’ve been involved in a car accident, and the other driver was at fault, you may be able to claim compensation. If you wish to pursue a claim, call Accident Advice Helpline for more information.

    The rising number of accidents due to Sat Navs

    A survey has suggested that around 300,000 accidents per year are caused by motorists using a Sat Nav. Millions of people across the world depend on Sat Navs to get them from A to B these days, and while they can be a massive help, they can also be a hindrance. Using a Sat Nav can distract your attention, make you hesitate on the roads, and even cause you to take the wrong route or to drive down a one-way street in the wrong direction. The road layout changes all the time, and Sat Navs can become outdated quickly. There’s also a risk of becoming so involved with what is happening on the screen that you lose concentration and focus.

    Using a Sat Nav safely

    If you’re eager to avoid becoming a statistic involving accidents due to Sat Navs, here are some safe driving tips:

    • Check and plan your route in advance
    • Pull over in a safe place if you need to check the screen or reset your route
    • Ask your passenger to take control of the Sat Nav
    • Always pay attention to the road ahead
    • Turn the volume up so that you don’t have to look at the screen on a regular basis
