If you were hurt in an accident in Coventry that took place on the roads, it may take some time for your car to be repaired or replaced. If you have suffered serious injuries as the result of your accident then this will probably be the least of your worries, but if you are feeling well enough to drive then you will probably still need to find a way of getting around easily.
Many people who drive every day rely on their cars as their primary way to get to work and school, do day to day activities and chores. When you have been hurt in an accident in Coventry in this way, one of the effects is suddenly being without your car, which can feel as though you have lost a limb. Here are some ways to get around if you have to wait for a new car.
The effects of an accident on the roads
- Take public transport. Although to most drivers nothing could seem worse than having to take public transport for some time, you may actually find that you enjoy it. For a start, your early morning commute will then give you time to read the paper and relax before work, and it can be cheaper as well.
- Take taxis. If you are going out late at night, or to a location that you don’t know very well, you can always take taxis. Although these can be expensive, they are cheaper if you travel with other people, and will keep you safe late at night.
- Walk. Walking is not only good for your health, it is also free and will help you to get a better idea of different routes you can take which may save you time. If you are recovering from injuries, walking more can help you to recover more quickly.
- Travel with other people. If you need to get to work and live with or close to other people going in the same direction, you could always carpool with them for a little while. This works out cheaper, and you can take turns with the driving.
