Britain’s roads are safe. No, really – they are. Certainly compared with other countries, the UK has a network of well-kept roads on which traffic can flow with relative ease, and where drivers have been tested to a high standard.
The safety records bear this out, too. Motorcycle accidents in Knowsley, and everywhere else in the country, have been falling since the mid-1980s.
Cars have been designed to meet more stringent safety standards; airbags are now commonplace, as well as crumple zones and various electronic devices to keep the car functioning properly.
Roads have definitely improved, and this is doubtless because of a change in attitudes to driving (particularly in relation to speeding and drink-driving) as a result of education.
There have been laws introduced, relatively recently, to ensure that the roads are safer. Consider, for example, the law to make sure that people wear seat belts!
Traffic-calming measures have also become more common on our road network. Think of the speed cameras, the box junctions, the speed humps, the traffic lights on roundabouts, and so on. Yes, many drivers moan about them – but would you want to go back to the bad old days?
This is all very well, but motorcycle accidents in Knowsley do happen
None of the above things mentioned are of much help to you, though, if you are in a situation in which you get injured because of someone else’s stupidity. A well designed road and a modern car cannot cancel out the actions or negligence of a bad driver, after all!
People who suffer injuries as a result of road traffic accidents in Knowsley could find that they need to take time off work to recover, and when this happens, they might lose money because they don’t get enough sick pay during their convalescence to meet their outgoings.
On top of this, they could have increased outgoings because they need a childminder or home help, for example; they might have to pay for prescriptions or taxi journeys, too.
