Michigan Attorneys Offer Driving Tips

Automobile accidents are a leading cause of death during winter months. However, most of these deaths could be prevented by remembering a few simple safety tips.
  • Remember that ice makes things complicated.  One of the most important things to keep in mind while driving in winter is to keep a safe speed while driving. With the roads being slick, it is easy for drivers to slide when they try to stop.
  • Pay attention.  The roads are slippery, which means that most drivers will be driving slowly. This is the cause for traffic jams and clustering. If you are not paying attention to the car ahead of you, you could easily hit them if they stop too fast.
  • Don’t tailgate. It may be annoying that the driver ahead of you is driving 10 miles under the speed limit, but they are trying to be safe. Remember to keep a safe distance when driving.
  • Ignore other drivers. You may be faced with a lot of impatient people while driving in wintery conditions. Just ignore them. Remember that you are keeping you and your family safe by following these few simple tips.
Although you may be driving safe, accidents do happen. If you, a loved one or friend is injured in an automobile accident, call The Thurswell Law Firm Toll Free at 866.354.5544 to speak with an experienced Accident Attorney today.
