There are many different types of vehicles on UK roads, and any of them could be involved in Ryedale road traffic accidents.
HGV’s in Ryedale road traffic accidents
These huge vehicles are a familiar sight to most of on the UK motorways, and unfortunately they are involved in many road traffic accidents. But a lot of them are in towns or cities when the very skilled drivers are trying to maneuver them round bends and narrow streets.
Tractors in Ryedale road traffic accidents
Not the sort of vehicle you would immediately think of in road traffic accidents, but they involved in them all the time. Other drivers can get very frustrated with the slow speed of a tractor, and then take risks to get past them. This sometimes causes road traffic accidents, as does tractors going round blind bends on country lanes.
Two wheeled contraptions in Ryedale road traffic accidents
Bicycles and motorbikes are very vulnerable on our roads because of the lack of protection bikes of any sort provide. Bikers need to take every possible precaution when out riding their cycle or motorbike, as if they are injured in an accident that was not their own fault, their injuries tend to be of a serious nature.
Buses and coaches in road traffic accidents
Transport of this nature carries a lot of people on our roads every day, and if one of them is in a road traffic accident, many people can be injured through no fault of their own. It can be something as simple as the driver slamming his brakes on to avoid something in the road, and if you have stood up ready to get off, you could be thrown and sustain very nasty injuries.
Caravans in road traffic accidents
Most of us try to avoid caravans on the road because they can so easily turnover if the driver towing them has to suddenly swerve to avoid an accident or something in the road.
Cars in road traffic accidents
Cars make up the biggest part of traffic on our road, all different shapes and sizes with many different types of people behind the wheel of them. Most drivers are careful and considerate of other road users, but there are some who are reckless in the way they drive, and these are the ones that will cause innocent victims to be injured in accidents that were not their own fault.
