Tips for staying safe driving in winter weather

In an earlier post we wrote about things that can be done to a vehicle to try to prepare it for winter weather. While making sure a car is working properly could help to prevent a car accident from occurring, the way in which a driver handles a car could have an impact as well.

Steps to take following a car accident

For anyone who drives a car, getting into a car accident is a possibility. Despite this reality, it is possible that many people are not sure what they need to do following such an incident. Since so many individuals in the state of Wisconsin rely upon these vehicles to get from one place to another, being aware of what to do should an accident occur, is a good idea.

Winter weather poses new challenges for driving

Whether we like it or not, winter appears to have arrived in Western Wisconsin. While lovers of outdoor winter activities may be cheering about this, other people are not as excited. There are multiple reasons for this including the road conditions that often accompany snow and cold temperatures. In addition to slowing down commutes, they can cause car accidents to occur. 

Use of booster seat could reduce crash injuries in children

Safety on Wisconsin's roads is the responsibility of everyone who is on them. This means that drivers should do everything in their power to keep themselves safe including driving at a safe speed, following traffic signals and keeping attention on the road. This also entails wearing a seat belt. Where children are concerned, proper child restraints should be used. For children of a certain age, weight and height, this is accomplished through the use of a booster seat.

Drunk driving in Wisconsin a preventable problem

While there is no question that drunk driving is an issue in states throughout the nation, this is particularly true in the state of Wisconsin. In fact, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, compared to other states, Wisconsin has the highest rate of drunk driving. In 2012, close to 3,000 individuals were hurt in crashes that involved alcohol. Even worse, 223 people died that year. Where motorcycle accidents are concerned, that same year, alcohol played a role in 33 percent of them.
