    Kilwinning road traffic accidents

    Kilwinning road traffic accidents

    Kilwinning road traffic accidents, and road traffic accidents elsewhere in the UK, happen every day of the year. They don’t take bank holidays or Christmas off — in fact, often there are more of them at these times.

    Drinking and driving causes Kilwinning road traffic accidents

    Over the last few years, there have been huge attempts made to stop people being in charge of vehicles once they have been drinking alcohol, or are on drugs. Not just illegal drugs — some prescription drugs carry warnings about driving, which are often ignored.

    Around Christmas time, everyone is aware of all the parties and shindigs happening, and tend to be a bit more wary of cars that are perhaps not stopping in the right lane, or swerving all over the place. Seeing a car doing this at this time of year often means it is someone on their way home from a party, and really they should not be behind the wheel of a car.

    But more drivers are caught over the legal drink limit in the summer months than are ever caught in the party season.

    Swerving cars are not always drink-drivers; there are other things that can cause Kilwinning road traffic accidents

    When you see a car that appears not to be under proper control, it is not always because of alcohol or drugs.

    There was recently a situation on a motorway where an HGV driver noticed a car in the fast lane had slowed down considerably and appeared to be sliding towards the middle lane. Being a very level-headed guy, he took his HGV to the back of the car, put his hazard warning lights on to slow everyone else down, and very slowly nudged the car over to the hard shoulder, out of harm’s way.

    When they reached the driver of the car, he appeared to be in a daze and about to lose consciousness. It turned out that the driver was diabetic, and his blood sugars had dropped too low. That particular HGV driver averted what could have been a very nasty accident, and should be very proud of himself for acting the way he did.
