Why drivers should obey the State of Emergency order
Road conditions in the northeastern can be treacherous in the winter. With global warming, not only are road conditions often hazardous but they are also often unpredictable. That is exactly why people should stay off of the roads when the weather is dangerous and a State of Emergency order has been issued. Many cities and towns in the northeast are densely populated and the commute to work can be unsafe.
In the winter months, the roads are often covered with snow and ice or freezing rain. If you throw wind into those conditions, all sorts of things may happen and it is just safer to stay off the road whenever possible. Even if a State of Emergency order has not been issued, it is sensible to stay off the road whenever possible. Too many accidents may occur.
The highways can become skating rinks
When the roads are slippery, it is not safe to drive up to the speed limit, not to mention over the speed limit. Even if a person is driving a heavy vehicle, under icy road conditions, that driver is not able to maintain control over the vehicle if it is moving too fast. Many drivers are either injured or end up damaging their vehicle (or worse) at those times. Another side effect of extreme weather conditions is that drivers experience a tremendous amount of stress, which certainly does not help the driving situation.
The value of sound legal advice
If you have experienced a serious motor vehicle accident in New York, it may be wise for you to obtain legal advice from a knowledgeable lawyer who specializes in car accidents. The truth is that many motor vehicle accidents can be prevented and often, the other driver has been negligent in some way, which caused (or contributed to) the accident. If you have sustained an injury and need medical treatment, the advice of a lawyer may prove invaluable to your case. Compensation will allow you to get the help that you need and the legal support that is essential for you to move on with your life.
