Recently, we’ve placed a double-sided billboard on I-95 to help you remember our names and faces as you’re out there driving, especially this winter. Though we’ve had a late start to winter this season, the weather is certainly coming, and as it does, the likelihood of accidents increases.
While you and those around you may have experience driving in inclement weather, the first few storms of the year seem to throw everyone for a loop. After months of driving on dry roads with great visibility, it’s easy to forget the need to slow down not only your speed, but the reactions of your car as well.
On icy or snowy roads, your car’s tires need extra time to slow, you need to leave extra time and slow down with the gas and brake pedals, turns, merges, and lane changes. It’s also important to remember to have proper weather gear on your car. Run the lights when it’s sleeting or snowing, use winter blades, and ensure your windshield wiper fluid is topped off so you can maintain good visibility.
In the event of a motor vehicle accident or collision, the first step is always to file a report and call police and/or an ambulance if there are injuries. If you find yourself the victim of a car accident and believe it was due to another driver’s negligence, call The Pagano Law Firm and speak to one of our auto accident attorneys.
