Solution to whiplash injuries lies in motorists behaviour

Geoff Buck

This week is Road Safety Week, and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) claim that many whiplash injuries could be avoided if motorists stop driving too close to the vehicle in front.

This comes at the start of the cold wintry weather in the UK, with a harsh winter predicted. Stopping distances increase up to ten times on icy roads, further increasing the risk of a crash.

Tailgating came top (41%) in an online poll by APIL about which bad habits are most irritating to motorists. This was followed by failing to indicate, driving too slowly, hogging the middle lane of a motorway and parking outside of the lines.

At Fraser Brown, our Personal Injury team are APIL accredited and can help you if an accident should occur.
