Driving in Hazardous Weather Conditions

In certain weather conditions, such as rain, ice, wind, snow and sleet, drivers face unique challenges when behind the wheel. Not only are hydroplaning and fishtailing more common in these environments, you also face a chance of low visibility. Because of this, it is extremely important for motorists to make sure they are engaging in responsible driving behaviors at all times. This is not only for the benefit of yourself and your passengers, but for other drivers on the road, as well.

On the same note, though you may be driving safely, others may not be as responsible as you are and you may find yourself in a car accident with one of these reckless individuals. When this happens, it would behoove you to contact an experienced attorney right away.

Safety Guidelines

The following list contains safety guidelines that may be helpful in navigating the road in these dangerous conditions:

  • Maintain adequate distance from the car in front of you.
  • Do not change lanes suddenly or cut other drivers off.
  • If your visibility is too compromised, pull over to the side of the road until it is restored.
  • Make sure your car is in optimal condition to handle bad weather. Take your car to a mechanic for regular check-ups.
  • Review proper techniques for dealing with hydroplaning or fishtailing. Make sure you know how to operate your car in the event this occurs.

By being a safer driver you can limit the chance of a collision on your end, but not on the end of others. Negligent drivers are out there and deserve to be brought to justice in a court of law for their wrongs.
