Many of the Kent road traffic accidents happen on the infamous M25, and the Dartford Tunnel in particular is considered by many to be something of an accident “black spot”. Motorways are often the safest roads to be on. This is because the traffic is all travelling in the same direction, there are no traffic islands or traffic lights, and most of the signs are directions rather than instructions. The problem is that if an accident does happen on a motorway, they can involve several vehicles, and tend to cause serious injuries because of the speeds being used.
Britain’s most unpopular motorway
The M25 (the so-called “London orbital”) is one of the most unpopular motorways in Britain. Right from the beginning, when it was built with only three lanes, a great hue and cry went up about expected jams and delays. Most of these fears have been proven right, and even the widening of the motorway in places by adding additional lanes has brought little relief.
Use Accident Advice Helpline to claim compensation for injuries sustained in Kent road traffic accidents
The M25 is responsible for many Kent road traffic accidents, but not all of them. Many happen on other motorways, such as the M2 and the M20, and many happen on major trunk roads and smaller “B” roads criss-crossing the county. Country lanes in particular can cause Kent road traffic accidents. Drivers seem to think they have the road to themselves. That is fine until you meet a vehicle coming the other way on a narrow country lane, or come to a farmer in his tractor maybe. Drivers just do not take enough care on county lames, so many accidents happen on them.
