There are all sorts of risk factors on the road, including weather conditions and the use of alcohol behind the wheel. That said, speeding is especially prevalent, and this behavior has caused many motor vehicle collisions. Sadly, some of the accidents caused by a driver’s decision to go over the speed limit have proved fatal, and it is imperative for drivers to be aware of just how many lives have been lost as a result of this reckless behavior.
While everyone knows that it is a possibility that a car may hit you as you are crossing the intersection, no one really expects that it will happen to them. But what happens when it does?
Some parts of the country can be especially dangerous to drive in during the winter months, such as northern states that see a lot of snow and ice. Many people realize how risky it can be to drive during inclement weather, such as a blizzard or ice storm that makes roads treacherous. What some may not be aware of, however, is that these weather risks can continue to pose a threat long after a storm, when conditions appear to have improved. For example, black ice can stay hidden on certain parts of the road and lead to a motor vehicle wreck.
