It is the time of year where everyone pulls out all the coats, snow boots and winter gear here in Farmington, Utah. While there are many fun things to do in the snow, the cold weather also brings many hazards. More than 116,000 Americans are injured in car accidents during the winter.
There are ways to avoid a car accident during the winter. Be sure you are doing your part to keep you and your passengers safe during this snowy season.
You will definitely be in a hurry at some point during the cold weather season. Even though you may be rushed, it is necessary to drive carefully. If you make any abrupt movements while driving, it will transfer the weight quickly and cause an accident when driving in snow. If you are driving and brake too quickly, you can slide and hit the car in front of you. If you or anyone gets hurt in the accident, you may want to hire a lawyer to represent you.
Distance Between Cars
When you are driving in snow, rain, hail or icy weather, you will want to leave a larger amount of space between the car you are driving behind. Instead of only leaving a space of one car in front of you, leave at least the space of two cars. Once again, the bad weather conditions make it easier for your car to slide, allowing you to run into the car in front of you rather easily. If you need representation, finding the right lawyer is important. Our lawyers at Robert J. DeBry & Associates has more than 200 years of combined experience.
Tire pressure is important when driving in bad weather conditions. Tires are the one thing between you and the road. Be sure they are the correct tire pressure for your car so your car will handle the bad conditions well and the tires will have dependable traction.
