    Survivor guide: Navigating the M25


    Survivor guide: Navigating the M25

    As one of the most travelled roads in the country, the M25 is an essential staple of the commuting diet for millions of motorists. It can also be something of an intimidating tarmac behemoth for inexperienced or nervous drivers. The sheer volume of traffic means that the threat of a car crash or motorcycle accident is never far away and staying alert and safe while navigating the M25 is an absolute priority.

    How can I avoid suffering a road traffic accident while navigating the M25

    The fact is, the more nervous you are, the more likely you are to have an accident. Motorway driving requires a certain level of confidence so try and get some practice driving at 60 mph on dual carriageways and the like before your journey.

    Confidence

    This is an absolutely key factor to staying safe while navigating the M25. Nervous, skittish driving can cause problems for both yourself and other motorists. It’s important you are travelling at a reasonably high speed as you join the motorway, and make your moves with definition and clarity.

    Also remember that there is nothing wrong with staying in the left hand lane, particularly to begin with. Staying there until you are comfortable with your surroundings can help avoid car accidents. Just remember that going too slowly can be almost as dangerous as going too fast.

    Roadworks

    You will almost certainly encounter some of these. In fact, since early 2010, at least one lane closure or diversion has been in place every day on the M25. Fortunately, warning signs are placed well in advance along with speed limits. Paying attention to these limits the chance of accidents on the road.

    Awareness

    It’s likely that first timers on the M25 will never have experienced such a volume of traffic. Awareness of your surroundings is key to the safety of yourself and others. Always double check your blind-spot before overtaking and don’t get involved in any squabbles with impatient drivers.

    It’s also important to keep an eye on the road ahead for congestion and accidents, allowing you time to slow down and avoid further road accidents.

    Planning

    Knowing your exact route will enable you to get in the right position nice and early and avoid potential mishaps.

    If you do suffer a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, Accident Advice Helpline is on hand to offer assistance and guidance as you press ahead with a claim for road accident compensation.
