Even if your Welsh isn’t up to scratch, you may well guess that Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen is in Wales. More specifically, it is in Neath Port Talbot in southern Wales. It has a population numbering around 4,240 people according to the most recent census to have taken place. Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen road traffic accidents tend to be few and far between, but of course, as we all know, you can never tell where accidents are going to take place.
Modern safety features in cars have led to better protection in the event that an accident does occur. However, there are cases where people are still injured, perhaps in a car that doesn’t have airbags or where the airbags do not go off. In other cases, injuries may still happen even with airbags present.
How do these accidents happen?
No two accidents are usually ever the same, but of course accidents happen on a variety of roads and in all kinds of situations. If you have ever had a road accident you will know how frightening it can be, but the shock can hit you afterwards. You may get little or no opportunity to prepare yourself for what is about to happen.
Even if you do, you may not be able to avoid injury. Someone might drive into your car or strike you as you cross the road on foot. If you are a cyclist you may also be at risk of serious injury if you are hit by a vehicle as you ride along the road.
