It appears that in spite of the amount of traffic on our roads, the amount of road traffic accidents has reduced slightly. This is good news, as it means that fewer people are being injured, and fewer families are getting that awful phone call telling them their loved one has been seriously injured or killed. It also means that fewer innocent victims need to make a Southend-on-Sea no win no fee accident claim for compensation.
The causes of the reductions in road traffic accidents
There are several reason why road traffic accidents have reduced, just some of them being:
- Safer cars
- Safer roads
- Less drink driving
- More safety awareness from drivers
- Reduction of and stricter enforcement of speed limits
There are no doubt other reasons as well, but whatever the reasons it can only be good news.
Carmakers and road planners have worked hard over the last few decades to improve safety on our roads, and the police have worked hard at enforcing the laws relating to using our roads.
With regard to drink driving, Christmas always used to be the time drunk drivers caused more accidents, but everyone is so aware of the campaigns at this time of year it now happens a lot less. In fact it is now more likely to happen in the summer months, after a few beers at a barbeque perhaps.
The campaigns run by all concerned with road safety has made road users much more aware of keeping safe on our roads, and although speeds have been reduced and the limits more strictly enforced, you will always get the drivers that cannot keep their foot off the accelerator pedal.
