    Survivor Guide: Driving on the M25


    The M25 is one of the busiest motorways in the UK. The main reason for this is that it is the main route in, out and around London. Here is some tips on how to stay safe whilst driving on the M25.

    Plan ahead and leave plenty of time to prevent a road traffic accident

    A major cause of car crashes on any route is road rage. So, to avoid this make sure you know what route you are taking and allow plenty of time to arrive at your destination. This means that you will be less stressed and traffic jams will be less of a concern thus reducing the risk of a car crash whilst driving on the M25

    Don’t drive tired

    This may seem like an obvious one but it is an important tip. If you feel tired, avoid driving, or if you are already on the road take a break. If you have your window open slightly the breeze should help you stay alert which will help prevent a car accident.

    Take plenty of toys to amuse the kids

    If you are travelling with children ensure you take plenty to keep them amused. This could be books, toys, DVD players or hand-held consoles. The longer they are amused, the less distracted you will be. If children become bored then your attention is likely to waver from the road and whilst driving on the M25 this could potentially cause a car accident.

    Stay hydrated and fuelled up

    Before leaving the house make sure you have plenty of fuel, both in the tank and in your car in the form of drinks. It is important that while driving on the M25 and other roads to stay hydrated, especially during the summer. Dehydration will likely make you feel tired and make a road traffic accident more likely to occur.
