Ice and snow and freezing rain….wouldn’t it be great if you could just not drive at all in the winter? Unfortunately, that’s not realistic and at some point most people have to venture out in bad weather. Even though a great deal of caution is used when the roads are slick, an accident can be hard to avoid. What happens when extreme weather and road conditions play a part in an accident? Which driver is to blame? Can you place some blame on Mother Nature?
Unfortunately even if you hit a patch of ice caused by weather conditions, you are still responsible for maintaining control of the vehicle. It may seem unfair to be at fault when ice clearly caused a loss of control, but if you choose to get behind the wheel when driving conditions are poor, it’s your responsibility to keep the vehicle under control.
