Lying off the tip of Cornwall, the Scilly Isles don’t have much traffic at all. Accidents will still happen though, and if you were not at fault you might make a car accident compensation claim in the Isles of Scilly.
The Scilly Isles lie in the Atlantic, off the Cornish coast. Their position means that they do not get frost or snow, but do get very heavy gales. These can affect driving conditions with heavy spray and crosswinds, so caution must be taken.
The islands also don’t have much traffic, relying heavily on taxis and buses. St Mary’s has approximately 600 vehicles on the islands. In a situation such as this, it’s very easy to get complacent with your driving. With buses and taxis the dangers are the same as in any other town or city, if car isn’t taken.
Even where there is little traffic, you still need to make sure you pay full attention to your surroundings. If you don’t expect to see traffic on the road, it’s easy to just pull straight out of a junction without even looking. It only takes one vehicle to be coming along the road, and you will have an accident. Similarly it’s very easy to drive too fast, leaving you unable to stop if you meet something coming the other way or stopped in front of you.
