Tips for driving during winter weather conditions

When New York roads are covered in snow and ice, it may be best to stay home. According to to the Department of Transportation, 22% of car accidents in the United States are attributed to snow, sleet or ice. Those who have to travel during periods of severe weather should inspect their vehicles before they leave. Ideally, a car will have emergency supplies such as road salt in the event that it becomes difficult to move because of snow or ice.

Blankets, hats and sleeping bags can keep a person warm if he or she becomes stranded. Tires should be replaced if they don’t have proper tread, and it is also a good idea to check that fluids are at proper levels before leaving home. Furthermore, vehicles should be free of snow or other debris that can make it harder to see.

While traveling, drivers should be sure to stay on main roads as they are less likely to have significant amounts of snow and ice on them. Those who are stranded on the side of the road are encouraged to stay inside of their vehicles. It is important to run the engine for only a few minutes every hour or so. This can reduce the chances of carbon monoxide buildup in the vehicle.

Those who are hurt by a negligent driver may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Compensation may help to pay for medical bills, lost future earnings or other costs related to the accident. An attorney might use a police report, crash scene photos or other evidence to show that a driver was going too fast for road conditions. It may also be possible to assert that a defendant was following too closely on a road covered in ice or snow.
