You will not find an accident solicitor in Troedyrhiw
Are you thinking about taking a trip somewhere at night? Perhaps you’re going on holiday or a business trip. Whatever it is, and whether you’re driving all the way or you’re driving to an airport or a ferry terminal, it’s important to make sure that you drive safely. That way, you can avoid ever having to look for an accident solicitor in Troedyrhiw.
That’s a good thing because you would not actually find an accident solicitor in Troedyrhiw anyway. There are not enough accidents in the area to warrant the presence of an accident solicitor in Troedyrhiw.
Night driving is dangerous
When you see what RoSPA says about night-time driving, it’s quite sobering. A staggering 40% of collisions happen when it’s dark! When you consider that the roads aren’t as crowded at night, this gives you some idea of the scale of the problem.
Any accident solicitor in Troedythiw will process many claims throughout the year on behalf of people who have been injured in an accident that happened on the roads at night as a result of someone else’s ill-considered actions or negligent behaviour.
You don’t want to be one of these victims, nor would you wish to be the cause of a night-time accident on the road, so make sure that, if you have to drive at night, you do it safely.
Tips for night-time driving
1) Plan your journey. Make sure you look at the map and get an idea of where you’re going, the roads you need to take, and the junctions at which you’ll be changing roads – and make sure that you allow plenty of time for your journey. Don’t rush, whatever you do.
2) Make sure you have plenty of rest before you set off. The last thing you want is to be tired when you’re setting off.
3) On the subject of tiredness, avoid driving during the hours when you’d normally be asleep. If you go to bed at midnight, it’s best not to drive after midnight. If you have a two-hour journey to make, it’s better to set off before 10 pm.
4) Is anyone going with you? If so, can they drive? Get them insured on your car and let them share the driving with you.
5) Take breaks during the journey – every two hours, at least. Pull into a service station, get out of the car, stretch your legs and have some water and a snack. It’s important to stay hydrated and nourished and to break the monotony of night driving.
