Accidents up 20% driven by cold spell

Posted: 9th March 2018

The prolonged spell of frosty weather conditions has created extremely difficult driving conditions for Northern Ireland motorists, as a leading Accident management firm has reported a 20% increase in calls over the last two months.

CRASH Services have been helping motorists involved in road traffic collisions for over 20 years. However they have handled record levels of collisions since the start of 2018.

Tony McKeown, Sales & Marketing Director at CRASH, said “Over the last two months, the number of motorists contacting us for assistance has been unprecedented. We normally experience a significant increase in calls over the winter months, but nothing like this year. We have seen around a 20% increase on last year.”

There is no question that snow and ice have made for treacherous driving conditions. In addition, the roads themselves are causing difficulties for drivers with numerous pot holes appearing.

If you are involved in an accident, CRASH can take care of everything to get you back on the road as quickly as possible. They offer a complete range of useful services such as vehicle recovery, collision investigation, guaranteed repairs, all types of replacement vehicle, liaising with insurance companies, and offer legal and medical assistance. There is no charge for the accident management service as all costs are recovered from insurers involved.
