    Car Safety Guide – What is the safest van?


    NCAP conduct various safety tests on many vehicles in order to help consumers decide which model is the safest to buy. They do not only test cars, they also test vans as well. Each vehicle is put through a series of tests which are designed to show how well passengers are protected in the event of a crash or a collision. Some of these tests show how passengers will be protected from head on collisions and others are designed to show how well children are protected in the event of a crash. Each vehicle is rated according to how well the passengers are likely to be protected by the features in the vehicle. According to NCAP tests, the safest van is the Ford Transit Custom which comes with seatbelt reminders and stability control as part of the standard vehicle. It also has many optional features such as a speed limiter which will help prevent accidents caused by speeding. Although the tests are designed to show how well passengers are protected, unfortunately they cannot prevent potential accidents from happening while on the road.

    How could I have an accident?

    There are various ways a potential accident could occur on the road and injuries could still be sustained. Other drivers may be speeding, there could be heavy traffic or there could be roadworks which cause impatience among other drivers. There could also be a heavy snow day or the roads could be icy which could cause an accident for motorists. Pedestrians may step onto the road causing you to swerve or you may have to avoid large animals on a country road. If you do become involved in a road traffic accident and someone else is at fault, then you are entitled to make a compensation claim. Call Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.
