Accident in Dartford


Perhaps one of the most well-known routes into London from Essex is via the Dartford Tunnel. However, as so many people use this route on a daily basis it can get congested easily, particularly during rush hour.

Unfortunately, if an accident occurs in Dartford, it can take hours for the traffic to clear. When an accident occurs on the roads, it’s obviously important for the surrounding traffic to stop so that medical personnel can reach those who have been affected.

As people may be walking around on the roads or even receiving treatment on the carriageway, it wouldn’t be safe or appropriate for cars to continue travelling around them. Whilst this can cause traffic tailbacks, it can help to prevent another, subsequent accident from occurring.

Once those have been injured have been removed from the scene, many people assume that the traffic can start moving again. However, often the damaged vehicles need to be removed from the carriageway which can take some time. In most cases, specialist equipment must be brought to the scene so that the vehicles can be removed safely.

In addition to this, if the causes of the accident in Dartford are unknown or criminal activity is suspected, a thorough investigated must take place. This may mean that the vehicles cannot be removed until the investigation is complete which could take hours or even days.

Once the vehicles have been removed from the road, debris, such as glass and car parts, may remain so this too will need to be cleaned before traffic can get moving again. Whilst it may be tempting for a driver to simply drive around or through this debris, this could simply result in another accident in Dartford so it is certainly not advisable.
