Every two minutes someone driving in the UK is involved in a car accident. In the majority of cases the accident could have been avoided by exercising more caution. We have put together a guide to help you prevent a car accident.

Keep your distance

Driving too close to the car in front of you increases the odds of being in a rear-end collision. The stopping distance between you and the car in front varies between road conditions and even the type of vehicle you are driving.

In wet conditions your stopping distances are doubled. Icy roads will mean that it will take you ten times longer to stop then in normal dry conditions.
