Drivers of vans seem to have a bad reputation, particularly if their van is white. For some reason they tend to take more risks than many other road users, and cause more other drivers to have at least a twinge of road rage because of the way they behave.
No one is ever surprised to see a van shoot the lights, or pull out of a junction before they should, in fact it is almost expected of them. Of course we should not tar all van drivers with the same brush, but most drivers are more wary when driving by vans.
Accidents with vans are the cause of many innocent victims making Rutland car accident claims, as it is not unusual for them to be the cause of an accident where an innocent person is injured.
Has one of these van drivers caused you harm? Could you make Rutland car accident claims?
If the police are around when they were driving in this way, you would expect that they be stopped, and probably prosecuted for dangerous driving, hopefully before they cause an accident.
But in fairness, it is not just van drivers that do silly things on our roads, all the time you see drivers of all sorts of vehicles doing things they should not and most road traffic accidents are caused by driver errors.
If you are a blameless victim of a road traffic accident, then you should think about making Rutland car accident claims and Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you.
The safest and the most dangerous roads
Recent research shows that the motorways are the safest place to drive, and rural roads the most dangerous. It is thought this is because of the lack of traffic lights islands, junction road signs etc. on the motorways, and the fact the traffic is all travelling in one direction makes it less likely you will have a head on collision.
With the rural roads, complacency seems to be the biggest problem, drivers assuming they have the road to themselves, so taking risks they shouldn’t and meeting another driver thinking just the same thing.
