The time of day can greatly influence the type of person who gets involved in a Swindon car crash claim. Here we look at the timeline of road traffic accidents in the UK and how this influences personal injury claims after those accidents.
Timeline of a Swindon car crash claim
Accidents occur during the morning rush hour. The people involved in these accidents are travelling to work and school. This is a peak time for children to be injured in car accidents. During the rest of the day they are at school. Rush hour is a high risk time to be driving. There are lots of other cars on the road and everybody is racing to be somewhere. Tempers flare, concentration is lost and road traffic accidents are the result.
Once the morning rush hour has settled down, it is mainly people who drive for a living that are on the roads. This includes reps, taxi drivers, delivery drivers, home care assistants and so on. There are also the odd housewife and house husband heading off to do the shopping. The roads are quieter but that does not mean that accidents cannot happen.
The evening rush hour sees the same problems as the morning rush hour as people race home from school and work. Then there is a short lull. People head out in the early evening and this is when you get people who are heading for a night out. They may be tempted to receive a phone call from their friend whilst driving, take their eyes off the road and an accident is the result.
Later on at night there are more accidents than you would expect considering the roads are much quieter. This is because people are tired and their concentration may be poor. They may even fall asleep at the wheel. People are also tempted to drink and drive as they make their way home after a night out.
