You don’t tend to consider areas like Tandridge as being a dangerous place for motorists and road users. Like most other parts of Surrey, you might think of it as a beautiful part of the world; but you’re just as likely to have a crash and make road accident claims in Tandridge as you are in the rest of the United Kingdom.
Caterham, the largest town in the Tandridge district, is known for its motoring pedigree with the racing car manufacturer based in the town, and there is a population of around 85,000 people residing in the region.
Many see it as a commuter part of South East England, enabling people to travel into the capital for instance without having to actually live in the hustle and bustle that surrounds city life.
Obviously commuting in has its benefits in that it’s much quieter where you might live and, as mentioned, you don’t have to live in the city centre, but there are flaws too.
Commuter regions mean more queues
One of these being that a popular commuter area means you’re often caught up in a fair amount of traffic each morning and evening. When people are all trying to get into London and the other big cities with enough time to get to work on time, queues are likely to build.
This has its own problems in that drivers who are still tired aren’t fully focussed on the road and what’s around them, and when they’re in traffic they may not notice that the vehicle in front has its brakes on until it’s too late.
This is in fact one of the most common causes of accidents on the British roads, with driver error the defining factor. A significant number of the road accident claims in Tandridge come from those hit head-on, from behind or the side by other road users.
They could be left with a range of injuries, such as whiplash, cuts and bruises, even broken bones depending on the severity and speeds involved; and they were not at all at fault.
