DIFFERENT WEATHER PROBLEMS
Many different types of weather can create a lack of traction on the road or an inability to see clearly. However, the specifics of different weather events can highlight what a driver needs to do to prepare for the worst. When driving, motorists can find themselves dealing with the following weather-related difficulties:
Wind storms compromise control and bring debris onto the road.
Rain, snow, and ice slick the road, making tires less able to grip the pavement.
Fog and heavy rain or snow can cause a significant loss in visibility.
Hail can cause physical damage to a car and even lead to cracked windshields.
Flooding or torrential rainstorms can cause water damage to vital auto parts.
By taking the weather into account, you can better understand what you need to do to remain safe on the road. Understanding that traffic will usually slow down when
traction is lost to avoid slipping out of control, you can also more plan your schedule accordingly.
If you have been injured by a driver who did not pay attention to weather warnings or conditions, you may be entitled to pursue compensation. Contact the Charleston car accident attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm by calling 843-720-2800 today.
