Driving in Inclement Weather

Certain weather conditions make it more difficult for drivers to see each other, keep control over their vehicle, or even get their vehicles started. Paying attention to weather reports can be an important part of staying safe on roadways. There are certain types of weather that can make preparation and careful driving even more important than they typically are.

If a negligent driver has caused you to experience an auto accident, you may have grounds for legal action. Contact the Charleston car accident lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 today to learn more about how a car accident attorney can help you with your claim.


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.
