About Junction accident claims

Junctions are very common places for road traffic accidents. The highway code states that all drivers must approach junctions with a lot of caution and follow the rules to ensure the safety of all drivers. The highway code states to watch out for cyclists, motorcyclists, powered wheelchairs and mobility scooters and pedestrians, as they are not easy to see.

When emerging from a junction, you must always give way to the cars that are on the main road. Some junctions display “give way” signs and some junctions display stop signs and drivers of all vehicles should always follow these signs.

Highway code rules

Rule 171 of the highway code states that:

“you must stop behind the line at a junction with a “stop” sign and a solid white line”

If a driver fails to follow this rule, they might cause a car accident.

Rule 172 of the highway code states that:

“The approach to a junction may have a “give way” sign or a triangle market on the road” you must give way to traffic on the road when emerging from a junction with white lines across the road”.

Causes of accidents at junctions

There is a range of things that can cause accidents at junctions, the most common ones include:

  • Negligent, Careless or Dangerous Driving, when the driver isn’t paying attention to the road or is ignoring road signs.
  • Emerging from junctions without giving way or stopping, forcing themselves into the traffic, posing a danger to the other road users.
  • Not leaving enough space when turning right on junctions or dual carriageway and either stopping oncoming traffic or even causing accidents.
  • Not checking the blind spot before turning at junctions, which allows you to look out for pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists.

If you have been involved in an accident at a junction, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland.
