Kirkintilloch is to the north-east of the city of Glasgow. Hopefully, you wouldn’t ever suffer a Kirkintilloch car accident, but you never know what might happen at any time you go out and about.
Obviously, it always makes sense to take care on the roads, and some parts of Kirkintilloch can be busier than others. If you’re a visitor to the area, you may be best advised to take extra care, as you will be unfamiliar with one-way systems and road layouts.
How to avoid having a Kirkintilloch car accident
You can never completely avoid the risk, of course, but you can do things to help reduce the odds of being involved in one. For instance, make sure you keep both hands on the steering wheel, unless you are changing gear or indicating that you are about to turn. By doing this, you are more likely to be able to take successful evasive action if you have to do so.
Make sure your full attention is on the road and whoever and whatever is around you as well. You should try and leave an appropriate amount of space so other people have room to brake sharply or do other things that you may not be expecting. Watch out for pedestrians too, and make sure you have plenty of time to act on changing circumstances around you.
Of course, someone can always hit your car, no matter how well you drive and how much you do to try and avoid a collision. If a Kirkintilloch car accident is not your fault, talk to Accident Advice Helpline.
