Important Tips for Severe Weather Driving presented by Georgia Accident Attorneys, Montlick & Associates

Weather can have a serious impact on traffic any time of year, but especially in winter with wet, icy conditions, dense fog, black ice, and even snow. That is why the Georgia Accident Attorneys at Montlick &Associates, created the video above - to remind consumers of the dangers of driving in hazardous winter conditions and to offer important tips to help Georgia motorists reduce the risk of serious injury and possible death.

"Sadly, some Georgia drivers make no effort to drive more cautiously when road conditions deteriorate. They fly by at high speeds, don't adjust for the change in conditions, and put everyone at greater risk"observes Montlick &Associates CEO, David Montlick. "Rather than treating bad weather as a driving challenge to be overcome, drivers really need to view it as a dangerous condition requiring extreme caution."

The safest practice is to follow winter travel advice from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to stay off the roads when travel conditions become treacherous. But if it that is not possible - and you must drive in severe weather - please follow the safety tips below:

  • Allow extra time to get to your destination;
  • Make sure your windshield wipers work properly;that they don't streak, and you have plenty of wiper fluid;
  • Make sure tires are properly inflated and in good condition and that you have at least a half tank of gas;
  • That you carry a freshly charged phone;pack warm clothes, a blanket and a working flashlight.
  • Avoid distractions and be sure to keep both hands on the wheel for greater control;
  • Slow down and allow more room between you and the car ahead;
  • Keep headlights on to make you more visible to other drivers;
  • Accelerate slowly and never slam on your brakes;
  • Avoid using Cruise Control and always buckle up.
