Getting injured in a car accident is never a pleasant experience, whether it’s a Mole Valley car accident, or a road traffic accident that takes place somewhere else in the country.
The hazard of the mobile phone
Mobile phones are still cited as one of the major causes of road traffic accidents, and not just when used by drivers. Pedestrians and even cyclists use them too. All it takes is some sort of distraction, like the phone going off or suddenly beginning to ring, and it can cause an accident; if a pedestrian is holding a phone conversation, doesn’t think and just steps out into the road, or if a cyclist reaches for a ringing phone while riding and wobbles into an oncoming car, or into the side of one that’s overtaking him/her.
People still use mobiles illegally when driving
Despite the fact it’s now illegal to use mobile phones when driving, people still do, and they’re toying not only with their own lives; but the lives of other road users and pedestrians too. According to the “Think” webpage (on the mobile phone page of the Direct.Gov.UK website), you’re four times more likely to cause an accident if you use your mobile phone when driving.
They also advise that using a mobile when driving reduces reaction times by as much as 50%, and that even the most careful of drivers can easily be distracted by an incoming call or text message. All it takes is one second of distraction to cause a catastrophic accident with disastrous results.
