It is tempting, when you are tired and just want to get home, to continue driving along in situations which pose a little bit of a threat to you. However, if you do this, you are putting yourself at risk of being involved in a road accident, the outcome of which can never be predicted.
If you are injured by another person in a road accident, you should be able to make road accident claims in Welwyn Hatfield against them, but it is always better to avoid the accident in the first place. Here are some of the dangerous road situations you should try to avoid or get out of as quickly as possible.
Obviously bad weather isn’t something that can be controlled, and if you need to get somewhere then this is what you need to do, but try to understand the difference between bad weather and dangerous weather.
Ice on a road which hasn’t been properly gritted can cause accidents which could cause serious injuries or even death. If your car is sliding around on the road, pull over and move away from the road.
Aggressive or reckless drivers
Call the police as soon as you can on any driver you think is drunk, aggressive or otherwise driving dangerously. Even if you don’t end up involved in an accident with them, someone else could easily be. You should also pull over as soon as possible and don’t try to get past them or go head to head with them.
An overcrowded road
This can happen during rush hour or special days such as bank holidays and festivals. A road which has too much going on, lots of cars stuck and trying to get past each other and so on can easily cause accidents. To avoid these, avoid going out in the first place, or pull over somewhere safe and wait or walk.
