Hackney can refer both to the London borough of Hackney and to Hackney Central, which is the main district in this particular borough. The district is quite small in relation to the borough, and perhaps surprisingly, it was once a village! It seems hard to envisage this now, but in Tudor times this was quite a small but highbrow area. Even King Henry VIII had a palace here. Of course, in those times, cars did not yet exist, so car accident claims in Hackney would not have existed either.
There are plenty of ways you can get around the local area, not to mention getting into central London and the city itself. However, there are still lots of people who drive, making the local streets very busy even at the quieter times.
Staying safe on the roads of Hackney
If you are not used to driving on busy roads, it will pay to make sure you take your time to find your way around Hackney if you have to drive in the area. However, even if you live locally and you are used to driving on these roads, it makes sense to ensure you can always have your wits about you. Fast reactions might be necessary to prevent accidents from occurring, even at a low speed.
The reality of life, of course, is that even if you are the best driver you could possibly be, there are still chances that someone else might involve you in an accident. If someone else drives erratically, misses a signal or a red light, or drives faster than they should do, you may end up being injured even if you did nothing wrong.
