The White cliffs of Dover are a famous landmark in England. One of the main reasons is that if you are coming from Calais, France, on the ferry which is one of the main routes, it is one of the first things you see as you arrive into Dover. This means that it is often the first stop on holiday before heading off. However, these cliffs like all landmarks can cause serious travel injuries if you aren’t careful.
What type of travel injury can be caused on the White cliffs of Dover?
One of the most common types of travel injuries which can be sustained on the cliffs is also often fatal and happens if you fall off the cliffs. This could be caused by tripping over rocks, high winds knocking you off balance or something as simple as not looking where you are going. If you are at the bottom of the cliffs, travel injuries sustained could potentially be caused by falling debris or rough waves.
How to avoid a travel injury whilst taking in the views from the White cliffs of Dover
The most important thing to remember in order to help prevent a travel injury is to always stay alert and always look where you are walking. This will not only help you spot any potential trip hazards but will allow you to pre-empt any potential travel accident hazards which could keep you and others safe.
Other than that it is simply a case of common sense, so avoid walking on top of the cliffs when it is particularly windy and if you do then avoid going too close to the edge to avoid a serious, even potentially fatal, travel accident. Likewise if you are sailing around the cliffs avoid travelling when the sea is choppy as this will greatly reduce the risk of having a travel accident.
