Driving at night can be a lonely adventure but also a very dangerous one. With not as many vehicles on the road some drivers believe they can loosen up on speed limits and the highway code. Becoming careless in your driving habits not only endangers yourself but every other motorist as well.
Although the roads are clearer it is vitally important to stick to the limits set down by the law and keep clean from a Neath serious road accident claim.
Speed Limits And Sticking To Them
A speed limit of 30 can feel very slow if you need to be somewhere or have just turned off from a dual carriageway. However it is 30 miles an hour for a reason. Even driving an extra 5 miles an hour over the speed limit can increase your stopping distance no matter how quick your reflexes are.
Whether it is rush hour or in the middle of the night if you are over the speed limit you could cause an accident that results in a Neath serious road accident claim.
The same applies to driving on motorways and dual carriageways. Any vehicle could look like it is moving faster or slower until you hit them.
Speed And A Neath Serious Road Accident Claim
If you are on the receiving end of an accident that involves a driver who was speeding you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries and the damages to your vehicle. At the time of the accident it is important to focus on making yourself better and out of danger before preceding any investigation.
If you are too badly injured at the time of the accident the emergency services will take care of you and the vehicle and the police may take photographs of the scene as you may be unable to. If this is the case it is likely that the police may see you before a solicitor to assist in enquiries of their own.
If you were involved in an accident that involved an out of control driver then you could make a claim for your injuries. Speeding is very dangerous and can result in fatalities so you should not have to suffer because someone else put your life in danger.
