How does weather cause traffic accidents?

Traffic crashes take place for many reasons, such as intoxicated or drowsy driving and speeding. In Bridgeport, and all across the state of Connecticut, weather conditions can also play a role in these accidents. Unfortunately, some drivers fail to operate their vehicles safely during inclement weather and put the lives and well-being of others at risk. If you have been hurt because of a crash that was caused by someone's carelessness, you should look into your options as you try to recover.

According to material that was released by the Federal Highway Administration, weather can cause traffic accidents in many ways. Although drivers often recognize the hazards associated with ice and snowfall, it is important to recognize that all sorts of other weather conditions can cause a crash. Actually, wet roads and rainfall are responsible for more weather-related crashes than any other type of weather condition. When a driver reaches excessive speeds on a wet road, they may be unable to slow down in time or veer into oncoming traffic as they try to stop, resulting in a motor vehicle accident.

Other hazards that can lead to crashes include fog, which affects a driver's ability to see the road, as well as wind, which can kick up debris and cause tree limbs to fall on the roadway. Sadly, these wrecks often leave victims with serious challenges, whether someone sustains a bodily injury or loses a loved one. When drivers fail to operate their vehicles safely during poor weather conditions, they have to be held answerable.
