Description

Emergency situations can occur without warning and in any condition – day or night, in fine or inclement weather. This book shows you what to do in the event of an accident, whatever the severity. Practical roadside first aid basics are addressed, as are the practical and legal obligations for all those who may be involved, and explanations of what the emergency services will do, and why. Other situations addressed include how to avoid problems as a lone driver, as well as situations such as car-jacking. Finally, car parks, and their own specific security problems, are discussed.

Synopsis

Every day on the roads, emergencies happen without warning. This well-illustrated book gives practical advice for those driving situations that we all hope will never happen. Authoritative advice on how to cope with various roadside emergencies is given by the Police, Fire, and Ambulance emergency services, some drawing from personal experiences. Basic roadside first-aid advice is outlined, as well as suggestions about safety equipment that should be carried in a vehicle. Being a lone driver brings its own practical problems, and this book shows how to avoid trouble, and situations that can occur in remote car parks. The more recent crime of car-jacking is examined and precautionary steps suggested. Where relevant, basic legal advice relating to the responsibilities of everyone that may be involved in driving emergencies is offered.

Independent Reviews

One could read through this little handbook in half an hour. Frequent refreshers when one has a few idle minutes to fill could commit the routines to memory. The book is small enough to have to hand in any vehicle and the check lists ... could be hastily consulted in the heat of many an incident. The book is copiously illustrated for additional impact.
Scottish Caravanner

Useful for learners or newly qualified drivers ... a good buy for novices.
