As technology continues to increase at such an alarming rate and we see and experience things that we could never imagine, there will never be an inventor who will be able to prevent accidents from occurring. This means that we can only take steps to minimise the chances of being involved in one. If you are injured through no fault of your own, your injury claim solicitors can ensure you reeive the compensation you deserve.
Your injury claim solicitors: for help claiming compensation
Cars of today come with all sorts of new gadgets and gizmo’s. They are certainly much sturdier than the little black Austin’s of the 1940’s. However, people tend to take their safety and reliability for granted. They rely on powerful braking systems to save the day but driving too closely behind the vehicle in front or speeding down the motorway at a great speed still puts them at high risk of having an accident no matter how reactive the brakes are.
Accident Advice Helpline: Professional legal advice available
There is no better time to take safety seriously than now. Check if you are keeping a safe distance behind the vehicle in front by trying the three second test. Quickly spot an object at the side of the road and keep an eye on the car in front. When it passes the object, make a mental count of… one second, two seconds, three seconds. If you pass the object before you reach three, you are driving too closely behind.

Don’t become lazy when signalling.You may know where you are going but other drivers will have no idea. Roundabouts are notorious for accidents as people never really know who has right of way. People need to check and double check in the rear view mirror before maneuvering into another lane, they also need to signal at the right time and stay in their lane. Some people tend to swap lanes at the very last second. When entering a roundabout, drivers need to wait for a clear break in the traffic before entering.
