Dangerous driving is often the cause of accidents on the road and can cause a serious accident or fatality. Dangerous drivers put lives at risk when they choose to make poor decisions and choose not to abide by basic road safety rules. Drivers who travel when under the influence of alcohol or drugs have lowered inhibitions and could therefore speed or make poor driving decisions. In addition, those who have distractions such as mobile phones or even headphones in are inhibiting their awareness which could cause an accident.
Speeding is one of the main causes of crashes and collisions and even those who drive just above the speed limit could find it difficult to stop in an emergency situation. As a result, a pedestrian could be knocked over or a cyclist could be knocked from their bike. Around housing estates, drivers may pull out too quickly without looking which could cause someone to be injured. Speeding in small streets could also cause a fatality if a driver thinks that no-one is around. Should you be involved in a housing estate crash and you were the victim of an unsafe driver or road user, you may wish to contact representation and claim compensation.
Importance of road safety at all times
Some drivers may take more risks on the road with experience and years of driving but this can still put others’ lives at risk. Although you may be an experienced driver, you could make a mistake when driving around your local area. Cyclists may be around when the roads appear quiet and you may pull out too quickly from your parking spot without looking properly. In addition, you may drive faster in areas that appear to be quiet but there may still be pedestrians around. Should you have been involved in an accident on your housing estate and someone else was at fault, you may be entitled to a cash payout for your injuries. You may wish to give Accident Advice Helpline a call for assistance.
