Bishopbriggs car accident

0

Despite increasing public awareness about road safety and safe driving on the roads, injuries caused by road traffic accidents still account for the majority of hospital admissions on a daily basis. Improvements to vehicle design and the introduction of new safety features such as air bags and side impact protection may have reduced the severity of injuries to drivers and their passengers, but injuries still occur on our busy and congested road networks.

If you have sustained a serious injury as the result of a Bishopbriggs car accident that was caused through no fault of your own within the last three years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue personal injury compensation for your injuries.

Staying safe while driving

Although most people drive their vehicle daily, it is important to remain as safe as possible to protect ourselves and other road users from injury every time we drive:

  • Check your vehicle before driving it. Check that the lights all work and that the tyres are inflated to the correct pressure and that they have sufficient tread: 1.6 mm across 75% of the tyre is the legal minimum requirement.
  • Check that you have adequate fuel and that fluids such as the coolant and screen wash are topped up. Also, check that the wiper blades are in good order.
  • Always take your mobile phone with you and ensure that it is fully charged.
  • When driving, always remember to check your mirrors, signal and manoeuvre. 
  • Check your mirrors when approaching junctions, traffic lights and roundabouts. Be aware of other road users, such as cyclists and motorcyclists, and allow sufficient room for them to manoeuvre.
  • Always obey road signs and markings, as these are designed to keep all road users safe. Do not be tempted to ‘jump’ red lights, as this may cause a danger to other road users.
  • Drive within the designated speed limits, particularly in poor weather and road conditions, when it may take longer for a vehicle to stop safely.
  • Do not drive too close to the vehicle in front. Allow adequate stopping distance between you and the driver in front.
