A few of the compensation claims that we here at Accident Advice Helpline process for the injury victims who launch car accident claims in Amber Valley, are the result of cars or motorbikes skidding on oil and diesel spills. If you see such a spill, in order to try and help to prevent an accident, you should either report it to the police or to the Highways Agency.
Motorcyclists are most at danger from oil and diesel spills
Most cars will negotiate a diesel spill without too much of a problem providing the spill is relatively small. The big problem is for motorcyclists. Any sort of diesel or oil spill can cause motorbikes and motor-scooters to go into a nasty skid. The danger is not only to the motorcyclist, but other road users around them too because motorists may have to brake suddenly or swerve to try and avoid hitting a skidding motorcyclist. That’s when they can easily crash into another vehicle.
The vulnerability of motorbike/scooter riders
Motorbike and motor-scooter riders are so much more vulnerable than people who drive or ride in cars. They don’t have any car bodywork to protect them. Whatever knocks they take are applied directly to skin and bone, protected only by a couple of layers of clothing. Good quality leathers can help to minimise abrasions.
