Eugene Herbert, of RAC Driving Solution, discussed when to help and when not to help at the scene of an accident.
A caller, Chris, shared his experience of helping people at an accident scene.
Chris said he pulled some children out a car on the N3 and was told by highway patrol that he shouldn’t have done so.
Herbert however maintains that you have to be pragmatic.
“To say you will be held accountable is a copout, if there is an imminent threat to life then you should help. If you’re in a situation to lend assistance then you should,” he said.
Herbert also urged motorists to always wear a seatbelt.
