    Road accident compensation in Stockport

    Road accident compensation in Stockport

    Some of the claims that we help to process here at AAH relate to road accident compensation in Stockport. Stockport seems to have more than its fair share of speeding motorists, as was evidenced recently by one of the county’s speed cameras, on a stretch of the M60 motorway just outside Stockport.

    The busiest speed camera in the UK – junction 25 – M60

    The speed camera in question is situated at junction 25, the Bradbury turn-off, on the M60, and during the course of last year (2013) it snapped 9,326 motorists speeding. This relates to an average of almost 26 motorists per day, and was responsible for claiming £189,194 in fines in total.

    Drop in the speed limit catches many motorists out

    This particular stretch of motorway is quite infamous, and covers an area where the limit drops from 70mph down to 50mph. In June 2014 one of the latest casualties was Andrew Flintoff, the cricket all-rounder, who was clocked doing 58mph on this infamous stretch of motorway.

    Speeding is a main culprit in road accident compensation in Stockport

    Speeding is one of the main causes of road traffic accidents leading to road accident compensation in Stockport. According to statistics on the RoSPA website, if average road speeds were reduced by as little as 1 mph, the accident rate would fall by something in the region of 5%. This does depend somewhat on the type of road, For example:

    • Low speed residential roads would see a 6% drop in the RTA rates
    • Medium speed urban roads, would see a 4% drop in RTA rates
    • Higher speed urban roads would see a 3% drop in RTA rates

    An average driver, driving at more than 10% to 15% above the speed at which traffic around him/her is travelling, has a higher propensity to be involved in an RTA. As a general rule of thumb – the higher the speed the more serious the injury.
