We’ve Got Snow: How to Avoid a Michigan Car Accident
Over the last few days, according to a spokeswoman from AAA, Michigan “had a lot of dead batteries, a lot of cars in ditches, spin-outs, [and] minor fender-benders.”
With two more inches as of last night, roads are slow everywhere and it reinforces the necessity to drive safely. Our attorneys have defended Michigan car accidents in the Detroit and Metro Detroit areas over the last 30 years, and we’re offering tips for you to reduce your liability while driving:
• Keep your windshield wipers in good working order
• Leave ample time to get to your destination this winter season
• Don’t follow too closely to Michigan’s snowplows
• Remember that salt is useless when the temperature drops below 20 degrees
Though simple, these tips significantly reduce your likelihood of being in an automobile accident.
