On The RoadDriving on the right hand side of the road
Most countries abroad drive on the right hand side of the road. It’s easy to forget this when you first get the other side of the channel so to remind yourself:
If You Have An Accident FIRST – try to be calm! Check whether anybody is injured. If there are injuries contact the emergency services, including the Police. Make a note of the Police Officer’s number.
Obtain the following details of other driver(s):
NEVER ADMIT LIABILITY or make any promise to pay any person involved.
If you are required to sign a document that you do not understand, write on the form ‘DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS DOCUMENT’
If driving in Europe, complete a European accident statement.
If you can, take several photographs of the accident.
If the damage is minor, contact your insurer’s claims line on your return to the U.K.
If your vehicle is badly damaged, contact your insurer’s emergency claims line telephone number for assistance.
Do not contact the Green Card Bureau.
