Motorways have a better safety record than any other part of the UK’s national road system, but every year accidents on the motorways lead to serious injuries and fatalities.
Avoiding accidents on the roads
By sticking to a few simple rules, you can ensure that you do not contribute to dangerous behaviour on the motorways:
- Ensure that your car is roadworthy
- Observe the speed limit
- Use your mirrors frequently
- Avoid distractions
- Take care when approaching intersections
- Obey motorway signals
- Anticipate the unexpected actions of other motorists
- Keep your distance, leaving a reasonable gap between your vehicle and the one in front
- Increase your distance in wet weather and when your visibility is poor, leaving a larger gap between your vehicle and the one in front
- Use dipped headlights when visibility is poor
- Observe lane discipline, using the left hand lane wherever possible
- Indicate when changing lanes
- Take care when joining the motorway
- Take regular breaks at service stations
