Slow drivers and car accident compensation claims in Carmarthenshire
Although speeding is widely recognised to be one of the main causes of road traffic accidents, a growing number of motorists are reporting concern about drivers who travel too slowly. Indeed, the slow driver can cause people to become very irritable and frustrated, resulting in them undertaking risky manoeuvres in order to get past them. The problem has become so widespread that some groups are calling for ‘slow speed cameras’ to be installed in order to catch offenders.
There are several reasons why someone might be driving well below the speed limit. Maybe they are unfamiliar with the area and are looking out for a particular address or landmark. Perhaps they are elderly and feel safer when they travel more slowly. Whatever their reasons, it is important that they are aware of the anger and anxiety that they are causing to the motorists who are stuck behind them.
If you are forced to reduce your speed behind a driver that is going very slowly, it is important to keep as calm as possible. Make sure to wait until it is 100% safe to overtake and do not put your own or anyone else’s life in danger by pulling out without thinking first.
