Road traffic accidents give rise to more injury claims than any other type of accident. This probably doesn’t surprise you, but some of the reasons why may – such as accidents caused by music!
Some claims where people have been injured in a car accident in Vale of White Horse have arisen because the driver at fault was listening to loud music. Although it might be said that music soothes the savage beast, it can in some instances turn a normally peaceful motorist into one! Particularly when that music is played at high volume.
Loud music can incite aggressive driving behaviour
Loud music, not only incites some drivers to become more aggressive behind the wheel, but it can also slows their reactions down. When its wound up to loud, music blaring out of car’s speakers can prevent drivers from hearing what is happening around them. The other problem is that adjusting volume controls on radios and DVD players when driving can also be very dangerous, sometimes leading to a driver wandering into the wrong lane on dual carriageways and motorways.
Loud in-car music is a factor in some Vale of White Horse car accident claims
Playing loud music has also been cited in many incidents across the UK where drivers have been unable to hear emergency vehicle’s sirens, especially at road junctions. In addition, when some drivers get distracted by the loud music they listen to, they forget to check their mirrors as often as they should, and being unaware of what happened around uses the means that you’re driving without due care and attention. It’s the sort of thing that results not only in the raising of Vale of White Horse car accident claims, but claims all over the country.
