Drive safely in traffic – injury solicitors Finsbury Park
Driving in traffic can be one of the most dangerous times to travel. The more vehicles there are on the road, the more likely you are to get into a collision or accident with them and the more drivers there are on the road, the more likely you are to be victim to the negligence of one of them. Heavy traffic can also be the cause of road rage and this is something which can also be dangerous for you, as people acting under road rage can be violent or act before they think. Here are some ways to drive safely in heavy traffic.
- Slow down. Moving faster is not going to make the rest of the traffic speed up. Cars can only go as fast as the car in front of them so if you continue at a high speed then you are more likely to cause an accident. Moving slowly also allows you to recognise hazards before they are too close to you.
- Get out of traffic. Even if you think it might take too long to use another route, it cannot take as long on a quiet road as it will on a road covered in vehicles. Get off of the road you are on and aim for a side road which will get you out of heavy traffic.
- Be extra alert. Look out for other cars, both in front of and behind you, and look out for any sudden movements or turns they may be making. Because there are so many more cars around you, you are at more risk of being injured by a car you didn’t see coming.
- Keep distance between your car and the car in front. If the car in front has to stop suddenly, you do not want to be so close that you cannot prevent yourself from dirving into the back of them.
