Whiplash injury in Barton Stacey


Despite being a relatively small village,a whiplash injury in Barton Stacey is perhaps more prevalent than many people realise. It’s got a lot of to do with the fact that the boundaries of the village are between 2 major road systems; namely that of the A303, and the A34.

Maintaining safe braking distances

One of the things that motorists are encouraged to do in order to help and prevent a whiplash injury taking place, is to ensure that there is plenty of room left between themselves and the car in front that they are travelling behind. Here are the official guidelines regarding safe braking distances:

  • 20 mph – 12 metres or 3 car lengths
  • 30 mph – 23 metres or 6 car lengths
  • 40 mph – 36 metres or 9 car lengths
  • 50 mph – 53 metres or 13 car lengths.
  • 60 mph – 73 metres or 18 car lengths.
  • 70 mph – 96 metres or 24 car lengths

These distances assume that visibility is good and that road surface conditions are dry. Speed should be reduced and or the distance between vehicles increased if either visibility and or road surface condition is compromised.

Modern motor vehicles are designed to reduce collision injury risk

The design of motor vehicles is improving all the time and particular care is always paid with respect to reducing the amount of risk in any collision. All cars today have to be fitted with headrests by law, but it is the correct positioning of these headrests that can help to reduce the incidence or severity of whiplash injury.

To be fully effective a headrest should be adjusted to support the top of the head, thereby preventing it from re-coiling too far backwards.

Most motorists however find this to be somewhat uncomfortable, and therefore tend to have their headrests positioned too low to be of much use in terms of helping to prevent whiplash injury.
