How to make car journeys easier as a passenger and make car crash claims in St Edmundsbury if you are injured in an accident
You would think that travelling as a passenger would be the easiest way to travel, as it is not down to you to do anything in order to get to where you need to go. All you need to do is to sit back and relax, as much as possible, so that you don’t affect the driver and their ability to focus on the road and the journey.
Some people find it more difficult than others to enjoy a car journey, with some people getting travel sick when they have to be in a car for a long time, and other people simply finding the journey boring and uncomfortable. Here are some ways that you can enjoy your journey a little more.
- Be quiet. You may be with a driver who likes to chat as they drive, and this is fine, but you should always let your driver decide how much they want to talk, and if they do go quiet because they need to concentrate you need to go quiet with them.
- Let your driver know if you need to stop. Instead of sitting in silence feeling sick or needing the toilet, let your driver know sooner rather than later what you are feeling so that they can adapt the journey to allow you to get out. Your driver would much rather you were upfront than that you vomited in their car!
- Give yourself something to do. If you are with a driver that doesn’t want to talk, bring a CD, music player or something else so that you can amuse yourself for the journey. This will help to stop you from getting bored, and also help you to avoid irritating your driver.
- Sit in the front seat. If you suffer from travel sickness, let your driver know and ask to sit in the front seat, where you are less likely to feel sick. You may also want to open the window a little so that you have some air.
You can make car crash claims in St Edmundsbury against your driver, or the driver of the other car, if you sustain injuries in an accident and you were the passenger. It is unlikely that you would have had anything to do with the accident as the passenger, so you may find it easier to make successful car crash claims in St Edmundsbury.
