Tips for travelling on a long journey
To avoid being one of the many people that make car crash compensation claims in Oxford each year, it’s important to take precautionary steps when embarking on a long journey. Some tips include:
- Plan your route ahead of time, and avoid using sat navs or maps whilst driving
- Leave enough time to get to your destination, taking into account things like diversions and road works, especially during peak seasons
- Ensure your car is in safe working order to prevent the risk of breaking down, or causing an accident
- Stop as required to refresh yourself, and refocus on the roads. Always pull over if you’re feeling tired
By taking these tips into consideration, you can set off for what should be an enjoyable road trip. However, things can change in the blink of an eye if another driver causes an accident. Even if you take all the right precautions, you could still be left nursing many serious injuries if a fellow driver has not been so cautious.
