New car hoped to cut congestion

As the number of cars on the road and traffic congestion increases, the number of car accident claims is likely to rise further.

However, a new car design could prevent the traffic jams as well as help the environment and make new cars more affordable.

Designed by racing car designer Professor Gordan Murray, the tiny T.25, as it's called, weighs just 575kg, can fit three times over in a standard parking space, is made from recycled plastic bottles and uses just a fifth of the material needed to build a conventional car.

The number of cars on the world's roads is expected to reach 2.5 billion by 2020. This has raised fears over an increase in traffic congestion and a rise in car accidents.

Hopefully, due to the small amount of road space the T.25 takes up, congestion will not be a problem. The increase in road space could also allow more distance between cars, therefore making car crashes less likely.

Despite their small size, the T.25s can still reach speeds of nearly 100mph and are said to be just as strong and safe as a normal car. It therefore should have no effect on the rate of serious injuries from car crashes or the resulting car accident claims.
