Stay home when it’s snowing / “blizzardy” / wet roads when it’s cold out! Not worth driving to – anywhere!
Did you know these alarming statistics provided via NHTSA?:
On average, there are over 5,870,000 vehicle crashes each year. Twenty-three percent (23%) of these crashes—nearly 1,312,000—are weather-related. Weather-related crashes are defined as those crashes that occur in adverse weather (i.e., rain, sleet, snow, fog, severe crosswinds, or blowing snow/sand/debris) or on slick pavement (i.e., wet pavement, snowy/slushy pavement, or icy pavement). On average, 6,250 people are killed and over 480,000 people are injured in weather-related crashes each year. (Source: Ten-year averages from 2002 to 2012 analyzed by Booz Allen Hamilton, based on NHTSA data).
It’s common sense but look at the numbers! Take this opportunity to catch up on cleaning. Read a book. Stay safe. And it’s not only you on the road – it’s all the others (perhaps inexperienced “snow drivers”) that you have to watch out for! And, worse, somehow it seems people still can’t put their cell phones down!
You can contact me here 24/7/365 (and I really mean that as I will answer my phone) if you have any questions about what claims/rights you may have after an accident and to learn how I may be able to help you or your loved one who may need, or simply want, a second opinion perhaps – in particular, you will find that I listen, take your phone calls and e-mails (and even text messages–BUT NOT WHILE DRIVING!!). I would be honored to help you with your matters – large or small.
