Get cover for your car

Summer can be a dangerous time for drivers with accidents rates rocketing according to rural insurer NFU Mutual. It says that 40% of its car claims occur during the summer months and is urging all drivers to be aware of the increased risk.

 

Laura Wood at NFU Mutual commented: “You should always be as aware of your driving in the summer as you are in the winter.  Although conditions may appear better, you should not be complacent as there are still very real risks when you take to the roads in the summer months.”

Rural roads can also be more hazardous and a new Government campaign for safe driving states that you are three times more likely to die in a car crash on a rural road. Wood agreed: “Rural roads in particular can pose a threat as people may be tempted to put their foot down when they see a clear country lane ahead. However, don’t assume it’s safe to break the speed limit on rural roads just because there is less traffic.

“Above all, you should always ensure that you have full insurance as accidents do happen, regardless of the preparations you may take.”
