Do you check your car for safety?
Although many people simply rely on their yearly MOT testing to ensure that their vehicle is safe, it’s often advisable to perform some regularl safety checks yourself to ensure that the car or van you’re using is safe.
For example, you may want to check that all your vehicle’s lights are working correctly and that both indicators’ bulbs are still working. Similarly, you may check the air pressure in your tyres regularly, particularly after long journeys, to make sure that they’re safe.
As the seasons change, it could be even more important to make these safety checks. Even changing your tyres according to the weather can help to ensure that you’re safe whilst on the road and adding anti-freeze to your car can ensure that it’s performs optimally despite poor weather conditions.
Need help with claiming compensation?
However, whilst you may be able to take steps to increase the safety of your own vehicle, you can’t be responsible for everyone else’s. If other people don’t regularly check the safety of their vehicle they could be putting you at risk as they could be more at risk of causing a road traffic accident or a collision.
If for example, someone else doesn’t check that their indicators are working, other drivers may be unaware of their intentions and unable to accommodate them. If a driver is suddenly making turns or pulling out and assuming that other people are aware of his or her intentions, it won’t be long until an accident or collision occurs.
If you are hurt by someone or something else whilst on the road, you may be relieved to know that you could make a claim for compensation with help from a solicitor for Hyde car accidents.
