Driving during an extreme weather event

An auto accident can occur whenever a driver is on the road, whether the crash involves another car, multiple vehicles or no other vehicles. However, there are times when a motor vehicle collision may be especially likely to happen, such as an extreme weather event. From hurricanes and periods of heavy rainfall to blizzards, there are a number of weather-related events which can make an auto crash far more probable. It is often smart to stay off of the road during these times, and those who do drive for whatever reason, even if they are only traveling a short distance, should be especially cautious. Sadly, many lives have been lost during periods of extreme weather due to auto accidents.

In some parts of the country, an unusual amount of snow recently fell, which inevitably made road conditions difficult in some areas. Extreme weather can occur at any time of the year and different states are more likely to experience weather-related disasters and poor road conditions. Not only can roads become difficult to maneuver, such as snow or ice making it difficult to come to a stop or drive up a hill, but some drivers may even have a sense of panic. For example, those driving during a hurricane may be erratic because they are overly stressed out.

Planning ahead is essential and it is often smart to stay off the road until conditions get better. If you do drive during such an event and you are struck by someone who was speeding or ignoring traffic safety guidelines, you may need to file suit.
