With winter in full swing, weather-related accidents can happen. Although summer is the deadliest time of year for vehicle-related accidents perhaps due to the sheer volume of vehicles on the road, winter can still be a dangerous time of year. Extreme weather conditions such as snow, wet conditions, and black ice can cause accidents. It’s important for automobile drivers to exercise extra caution.
Regular Maintenance Keeps You Safe
Each year at Accent Garage Doors, we regularly put on 25,000 miles on each of our trucks. As a precaution, we get regular maintenance. On the roads, you see us up and down along the Wasatch Front. Like you, we know how important it is to get to our destination safely. We want you to know that we take safe driving very seriously. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you see one of our drivers not treating you with the utmost respect on the road.
Vehicle accidents occur for multiple reasons. Speeding, drinking and driving, texting, distracted driving, and weather all contribute to accidents. It’s important that as a driver you know how to avoid any potential catastrophic risks. Fortunately, steps are being taken to prevent incidents on the road; for example, companies like Lytx offer equipment that can be used to ensure fleet safety for those who drive business-owned vehicles. Not only this, but many drivers are now being encouraged to take first aid and CPR training (you can search for Richmond hill first aid training near me, or somewhere more local to you), so not only are there becoming more preventative measures for road accidents but now many people are learning how to save a life at the scene too. However, more still needs to be done to reduce the number of crashes that occur each year. A published report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration highlights common causes of crashes to be the attributed to the following: 36% of crashes occur while vehicles are turning or crossing at intersections. 22% of crashes result in vehicles running off of the road, and 11% failed to stay in the proper lane. With the release of these shocking statistics, it’s no surprise different companies in many states tackle such issues by offering driving school courses and more such as California My Improv does, for example, teaching road safety to anyone who wishes to learn the practice of safer driving.
