Drive Safe: Winter Means More Hazards on the Roads of Atlanta Roswell, GA
a collision of two cars

Winter can make driving conditions more hazardous in several ways. Every driver should take additional precautions to stay safe over the holidays by slowing down where possible and keeping a keen eye out for potential trouble spots. Atlanta roadways can become treacherous when winter weather arrives.

Darker Nights

It gets darker earlier and the sun rises later in the winter months. On the commute to and from work, make sure that your lights are adjusted accordingly. It is also important to pay due care and attention to surroundings when visibility is reduced.

Weather Conditions

Although icy roads are only an occasional issue in Atlanta, rain can create havoc. Drivers who are struggling to see the road ahead through a torrential downpour are more likely to get into an accident. Wet roads will also increase stop times, contributing to how quickly drivers will need to react to hazards.

Fallen Trees & Debris

Fallen trees and other debris are a recipe for disaster on Atlanta roads. Drivers are forced to swerve or take detours to avoid obstructions. Unless these alternative routes are officially created by road service departments, confusion can lead to serious accidents.

Holiday Partygoers

The number of partygoers driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs may increase over the many holidays that occur during the winter months. Drivers should also take added care to watch out for pedestrians stumbling into the road.

Animals Seeking Shelter

Animals that are caught out in harsh weather may dart across roads to seek shelter in wooded areas. Although animal crossing signs are scattered along many Atlanta roads where crossings are most likely to occur, drivers should remain vigilant at all times.

If you have been involved in a collision as the result of a winter hazard, you may have a case for compensation in Atlanta. Call the offices of Rowsey & Stelter to learn more today.

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
