Many Huntingdonshire road traffic accidents are the result of drivers who drive recklessly. If as a result, someone gets injured, they can use the services of us at Accident Advice Helpline to start a claim for compensation.
Reckless driving is often the result of drivers being in too much of a hurry to get wherever it is they’re going. When they find themselves following a vehicle that is driving safely within the speed limit, and they are in a hurry to overtake, they often take silly risks; risks that not only endanger their own safety, but the safety of other road users.
Overtaking without warning
Indicating and pulling out immediately, without checking their mirrors properly, is a classic; as is pulling out without checking or indicating at all. It’s inviting someone to drive into them, or to swerve to try and avoid a collision, but instead swerving into the line of oncoming traffic.
Overtaking on a blind bend
Another risk many reckless drivers take is overtaking on a blind bend. All too often, they then have to brake to avoid a vehicle which suddenly comes into sight around the bend, or try to accelerate and then pull in sharply, in front of the vehicle they’re overtaking, thereby “cutting them up” and perhaps forcing them to brake or swerve.
The other thing many reckless drivers do is to get too close to the vehicle in front. This is not only dangerous for both vehicles and their drivers, but it can also make the other driver nervous, forcing him/her into errors he or she might not otherwise make.
Some of the biggest culprits of reckless driving are young male drivers. Their age and their inexperience, combined with their sense of invulnerability can lead to them trying some pretty dangerous stunts.
