Most people will recall the horrifying number of both serious and sometimes fatal accidents that occurred on London’s roads in the recent past. London’s roads are always busy but some road users are not aware of others and are sometimes not respectful of their position on the roads.
This is why the new “Share the Road” campaign has been launched, with the approval of London Mayor Boris Johnson. The basic idea behind “Share the Road” is to make sure all road users are respectful and courteous of each other. Instead of rushing to get to where we want to be, to the detriment of others, it is better and safer if we all take more care on the roads and respect those around us, whether they are riding a bike or driving a car.
The campaign is running for five weeks but it is hoped the results will be seen for far longer than that. The idea is to ensure the most vulnerable people on the roads and pavements of London – pedestrians, cyclists and also those on motorbikes – will be safer as a result of the campaign.
What should you do if you are involved in an accident?
The main thing to do is to seek medical help if you need it. It can sometimes be challenging to work out who was to blame for an accident, but if you were the innocent party and you know you have evidence of the other party being to blame, you should contact a lawyer. Your best bet is to speak with a professional injury compensation lawyer as they will have experience in dealing with similar situations in the past. They can advise you on whether you have the possibility of making a claim.
