Winter Weather Comes to Southeast, Bringing Increased Vehicle Crash Risks

By Grant Law Office on February 21, 2012

The winter has been record-breakingly mild in many parts of the United States this year, grounding snowplow drivers and reducing the number of weather-related accidents nationwide. However, recent snows in Georgia and surrounding areas have caused some serious accidents, and meteorologists predict that more dangerous winter weather is on its way, according to a recent article in USA Today.

Throughout last weekend, snowplow crews worked in northeastern Georgia to clear roads, and rescue teams worked to pull drivers from accidents. Although most accidents were slide-offs, a few serious collisions caused auto accident injuries in various parts of the state, mostly in the northeast.

Luckily, rising temperatures at the end of the weekend and through Valentine’s Day were expected to take away much of the snow and ice hazards, but meteorologists say this squall might not be the only one Georgia sees.

If you’re driving in snow or ice, stay safe. Slow down, leave extra space between your car and the one ahead of you, and remember that you need plenty of extra distance to stop safely. Always wear a seat belt, and make sure children are securely strapped into appropriate child seats.
