For drivers in and around the capital during the upcoming sporting events, the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) Drive and Survive has offered guidance to improve road safety and avoid any unanticipated car insurance claims.

Simon Elstow, head of training at IAM, has urged motorists be wary of the unpredictable behaviour of frustrated drivers in the expected heavy traffic.

Mr Elstow has advised road users to give people space and expect the unexpected when taking on the capital's busy transport system.
"If you're coming in for an event consider the park and ride services as an alternative, but as for any journey check the traffic and plan your route before leaving the house," he continued.

Roads are expected to be full of cyclists, so it is vital to give them ample space, while motorists should also be cautious of overseas visitors to the capital, who may look the wrong way when crossing the road.

Keeping the radio tuned to a station that provides traffic updates could also help car insurance policyholders avoid being stuck in congestion for hours.
