Road traffic accidents in Ramsgate
With the A299 leading to the M2, and the A256 to Dover and the Channel Tunnel, Ramsgate has its fair share of busy roads. The A254 Ramsgate Road is another route that carries a lot of traffic. Sometimes, it is on quieter roads that road traffic accidents in Ramsgate happen, because drivers tend to be less cautious when they are not expecting any other vehicle to cross a junction, or come speeding around a corner.
The consequences of road traffic accidents can be very severe, and victims can have their lives turned upside down. Injuries can be so severe that they need care for the rest of their lives, or they could suddenly find they are confined to a wheelchair. This is unfair when they were not to blame, but they are in this position because of the actions of someone else.
