Road traffic accidents
At the scene of a road traffic accident, the most important point to remember is to ensure that your own and other people’s safety are considered. The law clearly states that you:
- Must stop at the scene of an accident that you are involved in

- Whether or not you are injured as a result
- And you must offer First Aid and call for the relevant Emergency Services to attend the scene
It is commonsense to ensure that the scene of a road traffic accident is made as safe as possible to avoid the risk of further accidents or injuries occurring. Therefore, it is recommended that:
- Engines are switched off
- Hazard warning lights are switched on
- Warning triangles are erected and placed at each end of the accident scene to warn approaching motorists of the accident
- Passing traffic is directed by a member of the public who can ensure that it passes freely
- No casualties are moved until the emergency services arrive, unless fire is present
- Providing CPR is the only reason that a motorcyclists helmet should be removed at the scene, otherwise leave it in place
- First Aid is provided to all casualties
- The incident is reported to the police, ambulance service and/or fire service as required
