What causes accidents: pulling out

One of the most typically seen accident that happens between vehicles in and around towns and city centres is the situation where two or more roads join each other.

At these there will be instances where vehicles that are not on the major road have to join it, and the process of pulling out and joining that road, particularly if it is a busy road can lead to accidents, and does do so.

One of the particular courses is when drivers simply ignore stop or give way lines and therefore pull out in front of vehicles already on the major road and thereby either cause them to break dangerously quickly or lead to an accident as a result.

Also if there are things that could get in the line of sight of either driver - such as parked cars - on the main road, then it could be a car pulls out without even seeing a car on a major road that is in the blind spot behind the parked vehicle. So always take extra special care when pulling out, ensure that you observe stop and give way signs, and also if you are on a major road then also keep an eye out for traffic joining from side roads.
