Forces Involved in a Car Accident It is a given that car accidents can cause…
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, Texas motorist had the highest number of motor vehicle accidents in the month of October for 2013. The past years data also show similar trends regarding Texas motorist and car crashes in fall months.
Aside from DWI or DUI incidents, many car crashes are the result of environmental conditions, making the fall months in Texas very dangerous for motorists. Particularly, foggy conditions lead to bad visibility; heavy rain causes flooding and slippery roadways; and icy conditions cause several Texas roads to be gravely inoperable. Therefore, Texas motorists should be vigilant and take several precautions to ensure their safety on the roads.
- Reduce Speed – decease speed to leave room to stop in case of emergency;
- Gently Brake – avoid skidding by not “slamming” on your brakes;
- Clean Headlights – keep headlights clean to maximize your visibility; and
- Properly Inflate Tires – maintain adequate tire pressure to retain control of your vehicle.
However, for so many Texans, these strategies, along with being a safe driver, are not enough to prevent an accident. So, if you find yourself in accident this fall, call Zar Law, PLLC at (713) 333-5533, or visit us at www.zar-law.com, and let us fight for you.
