Most times a South Tyneside car accident happens, it is because the driver of the vehicle is not doing what they should, or losing concentration and ultimately control of whatever they are driving.
Road traffic accidents do not happen just in South Tyneside though, they happen all over the UK every day of the week.
The causes of South Tyneside car accidents
When you are a careful and considerate driver yourself, you assume that other road users are the same. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Here is a list of driving misdemeanours:
- Trying to read a map while moving
- Jumping red lights
- Doing cosmetics in the mirror
- Ignoring traffic signs
- Overtaking when road markings clearly show no overtaking
- Trying to adjust their seat while moving
- Talking on the phone or texting
The reduction in road traffic accidents
In spite of faster cars on busier roads, the accident statistics for last year actually improved slightly.
This is partly due to road planners working to make our roads safer, partly due to safer cars, and partly due to stiffer penalties for drivers caught breaking the law. Hopefully this means a South Tyneside car accident is less likely to happen.
