Driving can be dangerous if you are not paying attention to the rules of the road or are driving dangerously in some way. Even if you are a safe and careful driver, there will always be other drivers on the road who are not behaving in the way that they should be, and many road accident claims in Chorley are made every year because of these drivers. Here are some of the most dangerous types of drivers, and how you can make compensation claims against them after an accident.
Although it may seem unfair to label teenage drivers as unsafe, statistics show that it is teenage drivers who cause a large number of accidents each year. This is not to say that all teenage drivers are unsafe, but if you do find yourself faced with a teenage driver who is behaving recklessly then you should try to avoid them.
A drunk driver is by far the most dangerous driver on the road. Drinking lowers your response time and makes it more likely that you will behave in a reckless manner which could easily cause accidents. If you are in an accident with a driver who has been drinking, it should be very easy to make a compensation claim against them, as they will be considered to have been in the wrong purely by merit of their having been drinking.
Road rage is a common problem, and even the most mild-mannered of people can become a dangerous driver when under the influence of road rage. Try not to allow yourself to get dragged into a confrontation with a driver who is behaving aggressively, but if they do cause an accident then you should be able to make a claim against them.
