Tameside car accident


It is more crucial for you to be safe when driving alone than at any other time you may head out in your car. When you are driving alone, you are more vulnerable for a number of reasons. First of all, you may become a target for criminals who are looking for someone who will be easy to attack or mug. It will also be more likely that you will have a Tameside car accident, because you will not be able to spot all of the hazards on the road as easily as if you were travelling with other people who could watch out for you.

It is possible, however, for you to be as safe as you can be, reducing your chances of a Tameside car accident or an attack and making yourself feel happier on the road.

Tips to reduce the risk of a Tameside car accident

  • Tell someone where you are going. If you are driving alone and no one knows where you are, then if there is an accident or an attack it may take longer for someone to come to your aid. Make sure you have told a friend or family member where you are going, when you are leaving, and how long you expect to take.
  • Have an emergency kit. This should include a first aid kit, torch, mobile phone (charged), emergency money and map or sat nav. This kit may get you out of trouble on various occasions, helping to keep you safe in the case of an emergency.
  • Plan your route. Knowing exactly where you need to go will stop you dithering on the road, and prevent accidents and the possibility of an attack or road rage incident. Make sure you plan your route before you leave, and have it drawn out or programmed into your sat nav.
  • Have some way of contacting others. It doesn’t matter if this is an emergency phone, a portable tablet or whatever, you just need to be sure that you have something which can be used to get help if you need it.
