    Being a safe driver is a fine thing. Following the highway code to the letter and saving fuel is a great way to keep your insurance and running costs down, and your passengers safe.

    Unfortunately not all drivers are safe on the road. Bad habits develop which can be the cause of a fatal accident. Whether it is the fault of the driver or the passengers accidents happen and when they do you may need an accident solicitor in Perth and Kinross.

    The use of mobile phones

    Although the use of mobile phones whilst driving is illegal it is surprising how many drivers still do it. Even if it is done for a couple of minutes that timeframe is still enough time to cause a serious accident.

    Even if the other driver is using a hands free kit they are still being distracted from what is going on in the road. This distraction could result in an accident solicitor in Perth and Kinross getting involved. If an accident occurs from which the responsible party was found to be using their mobile phone it is highly likely that they will have their license taken away.

    Passengers in moving vehicles can be just as dangerous as mobile phones. The distraction is present and it is harder for the driver to concentrate on the road.

    At the beginning of any journey it is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that all passengers are strapped in with their seat belts. Though it can be difficult to keep an eye on passengers throughout the journey passengers without seat belts is a hazard on its own.

    Being able to move around freely means that the passengers can throw things around the vehicle or attempt to take the drivers attention from the road. Although it may be fun an accident solicitor in Perth and Kinross won’t be laughing.

    Bad habits and misbehaving passengers cause accidents. Being safe on the road is the responsibility of everyone in the vehicle so it essential that seat belts are worn and mobile phones are used at appropriate times.
