Driving in Inclement Weather
Recent statistics reported that nearly 24% of all automobile accidents occur because of inclement or severe weather. There is always a risk of an accident when operating a motor vehicle, but it is even higher when heavy rain or snow is falling and covering the roadway. Drivers have the responsibility to adapt their driving to the inclement weather, and when they do not, they could put innocent lives in jeopardy.

Types of Severe Weather Dangers
Inclement weather can range anywhere from severe rain and wind to snowy and icy roads. The majority of accidents that occur in severe weather happen when motorists drive negligently and irresponsibly rather than changing their driving style to fit the adverse weather and road conditions. Some common causes of accidents in severe weather include:
- Inability to see street signs or lane markings
- Losing control of the vehicle
- Sliding on rain- or ice-slicked roads
- Tailgating on slippery roads
Any of these accidents could potentially cause severe damage not only to your vehicle but also you and your passengers.
