The Lake District is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. Year after year people flock to the area to admire the wide open lakes, the tiny villages and the windswept moors. In summer the narrow lanes become blocked with cars, caravans and motor homes and travelling through the county becomes almost impossible. As a result accidents often can and do occur on roads in the area particularly if you are attempting to get to the seaside resort of Grange-Over-Sands. If you are involved in an accident you may find yourself seeking out the services of an injury claim lawyer in Grange-over-Sands may not have too much choice for you; if you struggle to find an injury lawyer you may need to seek the services of a more national company.
Staying safe on holiday
Of course no one wants to suffer an accident whilst on holiday; and even if you live in the area of Grange-Over-Sands itself there are things you can do to stay safe during the regions busiest periods.
- If you are travelling somewhere new look up the route before you leave. Sat Nav systems are excellent but do not always recognise that some roads are only passable in smaller vehicles. There have been many holidaymakers stuck on a narrow road in a motor home or caravan. Take a map or a paper copy of your route with you and take your time while travelling.
- Always carry a mobile phone with you in case of emergencies. Rural roads do not have many phone booths and you are not guaranteed to stumble across a public place that will have a telephone within walking distance. Signals may not be too effective on the moors so if you are out for the day let someone know where you are going and when you intend to return.
- Obey all road signs as they are there for a reason. If you are at the beach obey the lifeguard flags that are on display and keep an eye on your children.
- Take your time while exploring the area and if you are taking part in some sort of outdoor activity then make sure that there is adequate insurance in place for you to do so. Heed the advice of the person in charge and always attempt only what you feel is within your limit.
