Many of us have come to a junction and thought we have looked both ways but then are surprised to see another vehicle bearing down on us, of course, it is almost always the other guy’s fault. A new report backs up this theory as it states that more than half of motorists claim to have been “cut-up” by another driver who didn’t look properly says a new report. This poll done by a leading motoring organisation found that many drivers were blaming others for not concentrating.
Of these incidents around 40% were in built up areas with a 30mph speed limit. Recent statistics have also shown that a failure to look is known to be a partial cause of around three in ten of all serious accidents and more than a third of minor accidents.
Other figures found include more than 80% of drivers felt that minor incidents would decrease if driver’s awareness of motorcyclists could be increased. Also just over half of respondents said they had had a near miss involving a cyclist and many stated that cyclists should be held more accountable for their behaviour on the roads.
It is clear that we all need to hold our hands up and admit that sometimes we can be in the wrong no matter how good a driver we think we are. It can be easy to predict another driver’s course of action; however, it only takes one misjudgement to cause an accident.
