    Manchester road traffic accidents


    Manchester is a large city providing homes for over 500,000 people. If you include Greater Manchester in the population statistics, that figure would rise to over 2.5 million people. As you might imagine, Manchester is also frequented by many people who work there and live in the surrounding areas. As such, it is always busy; you could definitely say it never sleeps! It is also understandable that Manchester road traffic accidents do occasionally happen, purely because there is a lot of traffic on the roads.

    While most of these accidents are minor, perhaps consisting of a small bump in a car park or at a roundabout, or perhaps knocking into another car during a traffic jam, some accidents are a little more involved and serious than this.

    Common Manchester road traffic accidents

    Manchester road traffic accidents can happen in all kinds of situations – in heavy traffic or on quiet roads, for example. It is impossible to tell when something is going to happen, although there are times when you might see someone driving at speed or driving in a reckless manner, and you might think they are an accident waiting to happen.

    Some drivers and pedestrians find themselves involved in accidents they did nothing to cause. For instance, a pedestrian might be knocked down if a car mounts the pavement they are walking along. They might also be injured if they are crossing the road and a car fails to stop for them (providing the pedestrian is crossing at a green pedestrian light, of course).
