    Car crash in Hampshire


    A car crash in Hampshire can happen for a variety of reasons

    Tailgating is a mistake a lot of drivers make, so it is no surprise that whiplash is the most common injury of all car crash in Hampshire cases. In the majority of cases, the driver of a car that strikes another from behind is deemed to have caused any resultant crash, which only prompts the question: why even do it?

    Tailgating is not just annoying and risky, but it is also out and out dangerous: the way in which some drivers on Britain’s motorways behave is nothing short of shocking. Braking distance is a crucial element of road safety, but is something that too many drivers seem willing to completely ignore.

    If the vehicle in front had to brake suddenly and you were tailgating, there are only two possible outcomes: the first is that you will plough into the back of them, because you could not stop in time, with potentially fatal results. The second is that you have to swerve violently out of the way, possibly into the path of another vehicle resulting in a head-on collision, which again could be potentially fatal.

    Every day there is an accident on our roads, many of which result in fatalities. Lots of people say “it won’t happen to me,” but if you are driving recklessly then the statistics say that one day it will happen to you.

    Speeding can cause a car crash in Hampshire

    This is so blindingly obvious that it shouldn’t even need to be said, but speed kills. In many cases, the sudden deceleration from speed also doles out some damage.

    What the majority of speeding drivers fail to grasp is that it’s not just them who contribute to an accident. This is why we have speed limits, and they should not be ignored.
