Been caught in a jam recently? Like a 10 mile jam where the police have shut a motorway? Well itâs happened to me twice recently; a 50 minute drive has turned into a 4-5 hour long trek trying to get the last 30 miles.(M25) Are accidents becoming more horrificâ¦â¦â¦I donât think so, cars are much better built these days and due to the advent of ABS pile ups are rare. Does the rise in traffic does mean it takes longer for ambulances to arriveâ¦.again we now have air ambulances so I doubt it. So why is it that it takes hours to clear the motorway and let tens of thousands of people, each with their own dead lines, to get on with their lives. As far as I can make out it boils down to the Police and the need to apportion blame. It seems that we can no longer just have an accident anymore, you canât even call it an accident it is now an incident, RTA's have beenwiped from the vocabulary, they are now RTC (collision) or RTI (incident). The scene of an accident has to be measured, photographed, witnesses interviewed and this process cannot start until the accident investigation team arrive. Why canât we just get people out of the cars, get them treated and evacuated and bulldoze the mess to the hard shoulder, put big screen round it to stop rubber neckers and clear it at a less busy time. This would help get the motorways moving again and save the country millions in lost revenueâ¦â¦â¦â¦ Discuss?
