Christmas Distractions Cause Accidents

RTA ChristmasWith Christmas just around the corner, it's imperative to concentrate even more whilst driving and to not be distracted by the festivities surrounding you.

With everyone getting excited, worrying or stressing over Christmas, roads are busier and pedestrian population is increased. Here are a few risks to be aware of this winter:

Bad Weather:

British winters, especially in the north are typically met with extreme wind and rain, with some areas all over the UK at risk of flooding. With the temperatures dropping ice can be prevalent even on the most traveled roads causing a significant hazard, and visibility is extremely low when the sun sets at around 4PM. Pay extra attention and keep a good distance between cars infront of you when the weather is poor.

Drunken Passengers:

Your passengers can become a serious hazard if they are drunk, causing you to lose concentration or doing something themselves that could put you and them in serious danger. If you feel that your passengers are getting out of hand, pull over and refuse to drive until they have calmed down.

Flashing Decorations:

The majority of people would have put up their Christmas decorations, and it can be extremely distracting to drivers that want to stare in awe at an impressive display. It is important that you keep your eyes on the road, otherwise that few seconds could mean the difference between a safe journey or a nasty crash.

Blocked Views:

Stacking Christmas presents in the back of your car can cause severe visibility issues. It is important that you can see out the rear view mirror at all times and that this is not being blocked by presents, coats or any other object or piece of clothing.

If you have had a road traffic accident in the last 3 years, you can call our solicitors on 0161 763 8260.
