    Advice from personal injury lawyers in Lydney on how to prevent road traffic accidents

    Lydney is a small town, close to the Forest of Dean. It is steeped in history and even has a temple from the Roman period.

    Unfortunately being a small town does not give it immunity from road traffic accidents, and they still occur.

    Most road traffic accidents are thankfully not serious. However careless and negligent drivers that are involved in accidents can have more of a severe impact and potentially cause injury and in some cases fatalities.

    The UK has seen a drop in casualties as a result of road traffic accidents since 2007, the UK Department of Transport reported.

    Though the traffic in the UK has increased greatly over the last few decades, it has one of the best road safety records in Europe and the rest of the world. It is important though not to get complacent and always try to minimise the risk of an accident occurring

    Preventing accidents

    Accident Advice Helpline and their personal injury lawyers in Lydney deal with many road traffic accident compensation claims each year. We have collated a list of useful tips on preventing a road traffic accident occurring:

    • Do not get distracted. It is important when driving to concentrate on your driving. Avoid doing anything that would affect your concentration such as using a mobile, eating or reading.
    • Stick to the speed limit. An accident at higher speed is more like to cause more serious injury.
    • Be alert. You need to be aware of your surroundings and potential hazards. A car in front of you may break suddenly or a child could step into the road.
    • Reduce speed in rain and snow. When it is raining or snowing it will take you longer to brake.
    • Maintain your vehicle. Your car should be road worthy and safe. Regularly check your oil, water, brake lights and tyres.
    • Keep up to date on the Highway Code. It may have been a number of years since you past your driving test. It is worth checking the Highway Code as it may have been updated or revised since you last look at it.
