Driver error a key factor in crashes
I SEE that people are again calling for improvements to be made to the Englands Rd roundabout and its approaches.
The vast majority of trucks go through the roundabout without incident and yet one operator comes to grief and the problem is the roundabout?
Was it mechanical failure? If not, was this the first time the driver had used the roundabout or any roundabout for that matter?
No competent driver paying attention to the road and prevailing conditions should have a problem with any reasonably maintained road facility.
