If you’ve been involved in a north Dorset car accident in which the other driver was speeding, and as a result you sustained an injury, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
Running the risk of cameras and speed traps
Speeding, whereby a driver exceeds the local speed limit, or drives too fast for the prevailing conditions, is responsible for over 400 fatalities per year. Even with the rise of speed cameras and mobile speed traps, drivers still exceed speed limits and create danger to other road users and themselves.
Speeding is a major cause of RTAs
According to the RoSPA website, driving at inappropriate speeds is the cause of over 14% of all road traffic accidents. Apart from following local speed limits, drivers should have the experience and common sense to modify their speed according to local conditions.
Modify speed to suit local conditions
High winds and heavy rain can both be hazards, as can fog of course. Motorway signs now incorporate fog warnings, but even so, it’s surprising how many cars you can see hurtling down the motorway at excessive speed when the fog warnings are in operation. Some drivers gamble that they will see the fog before they hit it and will have time to slow down. Unfortunately that is often not the case.
