Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

The study suggests that fitting vehicles with cruise control and forward collision warning could reduce the impact of up to 5.7% of motorway accidents.  EuroFot carried out a series of tests using speed limiters, blind spot information, lane departures and curve speed warnings and has recommended that companies with fleet cars should consider investing in fitting out their vehicles for better vehicle safety.  The cost of fitting a vehicle has been estimated at £1,000 to £2,000 per vehicle.

Surely this is something that all car manufactures should consider in the fight to reduce the number of car accidents.  This will of course increase the cost of manufacturing the vehicles and ultimately will be passed to the consumer, but should we not be given the choice?
