The effects of whiplash in Manchester, in June 2013 were reported in the Manchester Evening News.
It appears that a collision occurred between two prison vans taking defendants from Strangeways Prison to Preston Crown Court. The newspaper reported that the accident was quite a bad one, and that all the defendants, plus twelve prison staff, would be making a compensation claim for the effects of whiplash.
Why so Many effects of whiplash in Manchester?
The prison van incident is not an uncommon type of accident in Manchester, which has many accident black spots including:
- Manchester New Road
- Long Street
- Rochdale Road
- Oldham Road
- Hollin Lane
- Grimshaw Lane
- Market Place
- Townley Street
This information, which was published in a government report highlighting areas prone to more accidents all over the country, is meant to give local authorities a clearer picture of which roads they should target when assessing the work they need to do to improve road safety, and will allow successful councils to pass on details of road safety schemes that have worked, that have reduced accidents and injuries.
It has been suggested that residents need to lobby their councillors for road safety improvements and traffic calming in some of these locations. There are schools located within some of the black spot areas that make safety improvements even more urgent. It could even effect the school numbers if parents check out road safety around various schools and opt for the safest area.
