    Tonbridge and Malling road traffic accidents


    Tonbridge and Malling road traffic accidents

    If you’ve been injured in one of the Tonbridge and Malling road traffic accidents that take place when drivers are blinded by other drivers’ headlamps stabbing out on full beam, you may be entitled to claim compensation and we here at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you to launch a claim.

    Good headlamp management skills

    All drivers need to develop good headlamp management skills in order to avoid blinding drivers of oncoming traffic when it’s dark. It is very easy to forget that you’re driving on full beam when you’ve driven for a long spell without any traffic coming the other way. If you do forget, you will usually get an angry flash from the drivers you are blinding and if you do, you must dip your headlamps immediately. Failing to do so, whether erroneously or maliciously could cause a serious accident with resultant injuries.

    Don’t forget about fog-lamps

    Fog lamps, if left inadvertently on in clear driving conditions, can also cause serious glare and potentially blind drivers who are following you. If you get flashed by someone behind you, check to see if you’ve if left your fog lights on and, if you have, switch them off straight away.

    Adjusting headlights to drive on the continent

    Another cause of accidentally blinding drivers coming from the other direction is if you have your headlights adjusted to drive on the continent and upon your return to the UK have not yet adjusted them back. The adjustment directs your beam to the right hand side, which is the kerb side when driving on the right. But of course back here in the UK where we drive on the left, if left unadjusted, the beam will be then directed straight into oncoming traffic.
