    Top 5 accident hotspots in Berkshire


    Berkshire is a county in the South East England. It has also been previously known as the Royal county of Berkshire as Windsor Castle is located within the county. However, like all counties, Berkshire has its fair share of accident hotspots where car collisions happen more often. Here are the top five accident hotspots in the county.

    Slough announced as hotspot for car crashes

    In 2008 a survey was conducted to analyse where car accidents happened more often. Slough was found to be the number one accident hot spot that year as it was 49.1 per cent over the national average for road traffic accidents.

    Motorways

    In general, motorways are often accident hot spots for road traffic accidents and the M4 is no different. This motorway has its fair share of accidents and car collisions.

    Reading

    This is a very busy town especially during the weekend of the Reading and Leeds music festival. Around this time car collisions occur more often usually due to the sheer density of traffic there is compared to normal.

    Ascot

    Ascot is mainly well known for its horse racing in particular Royal Ascot; an event where ladies and gentleman alike dress up in their best clothes and enjoy the events. The roads around Ascot can get very busy around these events and busy roads make car collisions more likely.

    Country roads

    Country roads anywhere in the country do not appear to be particularly dangerous but this is part of the reason why they can be, Berkshire country roads included. Country roads are often quiet which can often encourage drivers to go faster as the path ahead is clear.

    This is when car crashes can happen quite easily because not only is it easier to lose control of a faster car but on country roads you have an extra danger: animals. If you are speeding on a country road in Berkshire and suddenly a horse appears in front of you then chances are you may not have time to stop which could not only cause the death of a horse but could also mean serious driver injuries.

    If you have been involved in a car collision within the last three years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim. Speak to Accident Advice Helpline to find out more through their 24-hour freephone number.
