Road Safety Guide – Driving on mountain roads

Unless you happen to live in a mountainous area there is a good chance you have never had much experience of driving on mountain roads. They are more challenging to tackle than the average flat and familiar road where you live, and this means it requires even more concentration and focus on your part.

For starters the weather can be very changeable as you are higher up and therefore subjected to all the things that can happen on mountains. One minute you could be driving in bright sunshine and the next you might find yourself faced with heavy fog or driving rain. The trick is to be prepared for – and to expect – anything and everything.

Mountain roads present a number of other potential hazards as well. For example you may come across animals in the roads that have escaped from local fields and farms. Similarly there could be rocks or other obstructions that have rolled into the road if there is a sheer rock face on one side. It is also not uncommon to tackle steep roads or sharp bends – or a combination of both. Needless to say mountain roads require you to have your wits about you at all times.

Seeking advice on compensation after a driving accident

When a road accident takes place it is very difficult to think clearly. It may not always be obvious whose fault it was. Even if you know you were the innocent party you must have evidence of negligence on the part of the other person involved if you want to claim compensation. Potential hazards can and should be taken into account to minimise the odds of having an accident at any time. There is no need to suffer in silence if you have been on the receiving end of someone else’s bad decisions.
