Dangerous Driving in Adverse Conditions

We all know that driving in inclement weather or adverse conditions can be dangerous in and of itself, but some drivers disregard this safety hazard and continue to drive in reckless ways. Unfortunately, this dangerous behavior can leave innocent drivers like you in serious danger, increasing the chances that you will be involved in a car accident. The attorneys of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC, are committed to helping Lexington car accident victims seek justice when a reckless driver causes them injury or expense, and we may be able to represent you.

Why Adverse Conditions Affect Driving

An already-reckless driver becomes all the more dangerous in adverse conditions. This is because the weather inherently affects how people drive. For instance, adverse conditions can:

  • Decrease visibility
  • Make roadways slippery
  • Make drivers anxious / erratic
  • Affect one’s ability to stop quickly
  • Cause sliding on roadways
  • Necessitate slower speeds (which some drivers ignore)

These are all ways that adverse conditions can make driving more dangerous, even for a person who is driving safely. A reckless driver can become even more dangerous and threaten your safety.
