An increase in car accidents during winter months

As the weather gets cooler, the roads get icier and winter approaches, car accidents become more likely. Ice plays a role in many car accidents caused during the winter, with drivers skidding on ungritted roads, and struggling to control their car. Darker, shorter days can also make drivers wearier, causing carelessness on the roads.

At Christmas-time long trips across country and the threat of drink drivers are also worth considering. Drivers need to be alert and aware of all of these hazards and take extra care when driving to avoid accidents on the road. Adverse weather conditions can mean that stopping distances are increased by as much as ten times. Driving more slowly, specifically on country roads, which may be more slippery, are two key ways to decrease your chances of having a car accident.
