Newbridge car accident

0

Very few car accidents are caused through some sort of mechanical failure or adverse local conditions. If you’ve had a Newbridge car accident, the chances are that it will have been caused by driver error, in accordance with over 80% of all RTAs here in the UK. It’s frightening when you stop to think that the vast majority of RTAs are therefore preventable, if drivers only observed the speed limits, always observed best driving practice, and were always fully focused on what’s happening in the road in front of them.

Failing to look properly

According to figures issued by the Direct.Gov.UK website, failing to look properly was the major cause of accidents in over 42% of cases. Drivers often fail to spot other smaller road users such as motorbikes, scooters, and bicycles, and when they do suddenly spot them, taking emergency evasive action can cause a catastrophic accident, either to themselves or to other road users.

Fatal and serious injury RTA statistics

The prevalence of fatal and serious injury RTAs, although slowly reducing year on year, is still far too high. Last year 1,730 people were killed in road traffic accidents, while in terms of serious injuries, the figure was 23,380. According to figures issued back in the year 2011, RTA’s on the roads here in the UK cost the economy a stunning £15.6 billion. When you think that 80% of this money is spent because of driver error, it’s actually quite staggering.

In-car distractions

Very often it’s in-car distractions that divert the driver’s attention away from the road; things like retuning the radio, changing the disk in a DVD player, glancing at your sat-nav, or using a mobile phone (even though it’s illegal to do so), that cause the accidents. Sometimes, cigarettes can cause an accident too, when the driver accidentally drops a lighted cigarette and scrambles around to try and find it while the car is still in motion.
