    • Were driving too fast for the weather conditions – this means that they were not able to stop when they reached a hazard in the road ahead – that hazard may have been your vehicle. They may have even completely lost control of their vehicle at the time that it collided with yours.
    • Were driving too fast for the traffic and road conditions – this means that they may have been exceeding a speed limit as well. Speed limits are set up where it is not appropriate to drive over a certain speed because of the high possibility of causing an accident. Schools are a typical example – the roads around schools often have a speed limit of 20 mph because there are a lot of children in the area. Children are classed as vulnerable road users as they cannot judge the speed of an on-coming vehicle and are not road-aware enough to cross safely.
    • Were pulling out of a junction without looking properly – this is a particular hazard for cyclists and motorcyclists who have very little in the way of physical protection around them. Pulling out of a junction requires great care and attention and keen observation. You have to be able to see any vehicles that are approaching and then judge their speed and distance accurately in order to make a judgment about pulling out.
    • Were under the influence of drugs, alcohol or were unwell in some way. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure that they are in a physical state that allows them to drive a car safely. Alcohol, drugs and ill health can impair judgement and slow reaction times making the chances of an accident much greater.
