Stay Protected on the Road during Wintry Weather Conditions

By Car Accident Help on October 31, 2011

The rain and snow of the fall and winter season produce hazardous highway conditions each year. However, one way to make sure you’re ready for the weather is to check your car for safety issues. AAA Automobile Club issued some of the following advice for avoiding crashes and insurance claims.

  • Be certain your lights are working: And always use them in bad weather. They not only permit you to see better, but they also allow other drivers to see you properly. Oklahoma law requires the use of full lights during bad weather, as well as properly functioning brake lights at all times.
  • Don’t drive worn or flat tires: Old or worn tires do not grip the road properly, and they can result in skidding or loss of vehicle control. This is especially the case in bad weather. Be sure to check your tire tread and have tires rotated regularly to maintain their best condition. Also, routinely check your tire pressure. Proper pressure and tire tread are crucial to vehicle control.
  • Get new windshield wiper blades: If you can’t properly see the road, you won’t be able to react properly to a threatening situation. According to the AAA, windshield wiper blades only work properly for about a year or less. Check them often and replace them if they are worn (wiper wear and tear happens faster in bad weather). If the wipers make noise or leave marks on the windshield as they move, replace them.
  • Check the fluids: This includes windshield wiper fluid, oil, and any others. Also, inspect your heating and defrosting system to make sure it’s functioning properly which is another component to maintaining a clear windshield.

Make sure your car is safe and ready for the road before you get in it; overlooked car problems often result in bad weather accidents. Have you been injured in a highway accident that you believe to be the fault of another driver’s negligence?
