North Devon car accident


A common type of North Devon car accident is one in which a driver loses control of the car he/she is driving and causes a road traffic accident. According to the RoSPA website, approximately 400 people per year are killed in accidents whereby a driver loses control, and many more are seriously injured.

Getting an early start to avoid the traffic

Devon attracts holidaymakers from all over the UK, and very often people travel down from the Midlands and the North. This can create long journeys of between 400 and 600 miles, and many drivers often try and steal a march by setting off early in the wee hours of the morning to try and avoid the worst of the traffic. Problem is that it means they spend extended periods of time behind the wheel and as a result can sometimes get drowsy or even nod off.

If you start to feel drowsy – pull over

Popularadvice when embarking on a long car journey is to make regular stops. Keeping the windowsopen allows free-flowing to circulate, helping you stay alert. If you feel that you are becoming drowsy you should pull over onto the side of the road, or pull off at a motorway services station and take a power nap. It could be a lifesaver – yours or someone else’s – quite literally.

If you lose control – only for a few seconds

If you do fall asleep behind the wheel you are obviously not in control of your vehicle. Usually people snap-to after a few seconds; but even that can be enough time for your car to wander off course into the path of oncoming vehicles and cause a serious accident. It is simply not worth taking the risk.
