Many of you think that I’m talking about Game of Thrones, but I’m talking about the season changing. During the past winters, we ‘ve had a lot of accidents and its due to a lack of preparation for changes in the weather. This winter we can change by preparing for the coming weather i.e. fixing the road, having ice salt for the roads, and also, drivers can prepare by getting good chains for the tires or winter tires, driving at the appropriate speed limit, having a shovel in the car in case they get stuck. Posted in the Personal Injury, “Icy roads- Ice can often be difficult to see on roads, especially when it covers the road in a thin layer. This type of “black ice” is very slippery, and drivers often do not account for it during winter weather, leading to accidents when they are unable to stop or turn in time.”
“Every year, more than 1,300 people die and more than 116,000 people are injured in car crashes that occur on roads that are snowy, icy, or slushy. These conditions can make roads especially dangerous, and accidents.” – Personal Injury
In addition, the state could also help road users by placing patrol at every highway in case they need assistance. This winter we can reduce the number of accidents caused road users by following the rules and regulations set down the government and also taking some precautions by watching the news to know where to take on the highways just to avoid accidents. Many accidents that have happened in the past were caused by lack of precautions such as driving at a low speed to avoid skidding, listening to the radios to know where the real-time accidents and road blockage are, inflating tires and avoid using parking brakes.
In conclusion, many will think driving in the winter is not really safe but I think its the best time to drive because everyone gets to drive at the same pace. The winter season has its up and downs, and one of its downs is a lot of car accidents during the season. If we can follow the above precautions we can reduce the downs of the winter. Driving during the winter time takes a lot of hard work and only those that are strong enough can withstand it. I think this winter is going to be the “survival of the fittest”.
