Motor Vehicle Accident


Motor Vehicle Accidents

In 2011 there were 203,950 reported road casualties in Great Britain. The actual number of road casualties is thought to be much higher and estimated to be around 730,000 people. Though the UK has some of the safest roads in Europe and the world, in recent years there has been a decline in road casualties, there is still room for improvement. Many people are injured in motor vehicle accidents through negligence, careless and disregard for traffic laws.

Common causes of road casualties

  • Speeding

Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for the road conditions is a common cause of road traffic accidents. Injuries caused by excessive speed are often more serious

  • Drink driving

Driving under the influence of alcohol (or drugs) can impair judgment and coordination, making an accident more likely

  • Seat belt wearing

Not wearing a seatbelt increases your risk of injury when involved in an accident.

  • Careless driving

Being careless, reckless or aggressive causes more than 400 deaths a year.

  • Inexperience

Young and inexperienced drivers are a common cause of road traffic accidents. They tend to be less careful and respectful of the roads

How to prevent a road traffic accident and injury

  1. Wear you seat belt
  2. Follow the highway code and road traffic rules
  3. Do not allow yourself to be distracted whilst driving, this includes taking on your mobile!
  4. Always be alert and defensive
  5. Keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you
  6. Drive according to the weather conditions, i.e. in rain slow down
  7. Make sure you car is maintained and is in good working order

Unfortunately no matter how careful you are accidents can still happen. Not everyone respects the roads and other users. People are so often in a hurry that they disregard other road users.
