Stay safe on the motorway – a personal injury lawyer in Ilchester
Driving on the motorway doesn’t necessarily have to be more dangerous than driving on any other road, but because of the speeds involved, many people are more nervous about travelling on the motorway that on any other type of road. Staying safe on the motorway is much the same as staying safe whenever you are driving, but there are a few extra things you can do to keep yourself safe and ensure that you enjoy the experience as much as you can.
- Stay alert. One of the worst things about travelling on the motorway is that you are usually travelling long distances and the journey can be quite boring. This puts you at risk of drifting off and causing an accident. Stay alert and pull over to rest if you feel yourself getting tired.
- Stay at a safe speed. There are speed limits on the road for a reason, and you should always try to stick to them as much as possible. Even on a motorway, there are speed limits and you shouldn’t use the excuse that everyone else is speeding to allow yourself to go above your own comfort level.
- Pull over if you need anything. Never answer your phone whilst driving on the motorway, check a map or use your GPS system. Your eyes should always be on the road. If you need to do any of these things, find a spot to pull over first.
- Don’t sit in one lane. The lanes are there to help you to get where you are going as quickly and conveniently as possible. Make sure that you take advantage of them by moving from lane to lane, and don’t just sit in one lane, as it annoys other drivers and can put you in the way of other cars.
