Have you been hurt in Staffin?
Located on the Isle of Skye off the coast of Scotland, the district of Staffin includes over twenty of the local towns. Although many people visit the area for its picturesque views in the summer, bad weather throughout the winter can make it difficult to get around.
Whilst many people assume that smaller towns and rural villages are safer than bustling towns and cities, this isn’t always the case. In fact, smaller villages may simply face different threats than larger cities.
Areas such as Staffin, which is a relatively rural location, may have fewer local amenities for example, and residents may therefore be forced to travel further in order to access vital services. Whilst this may not be too troublesome in good weather conditions, bad weather can make travelling very difficult indeed. With rural areas often prone to flooding, it isn’t just the snow and ice of winter that can cause problems.
Indeed, many people living in rural locations can be at a greater risk of suffering a road traffic accident in bad weather conditions. Whilst people in larger towns may be able to rely on public transport, residents of villages often don’t have this option. With many residents having to drive regardless of the weather conditions, injuries and accidents can occur with alarming frequency.
