    Leading advice and compensation provider issues warning to drivers about the dangers of unpredictable weather conditions as Easter approaches

    Leading advice and compensation provider issues warning to drivers about the dangers of unpredictable weather conditions as Easter approaches

    Easter 2012 saw temperatures plummet from 73°F to -11° in some areas of the UK, bringing snowfall and treacherous road conditions for people making their Easter getaway. As Easter falls early again this year, top compensation provider Accident Advice Helpline has warned drivers to heed severe weather warnings. 

    If Easter 2012 is anything to go by, just as we think we have seen the last of winter along will come more snow, ice and freezing temperatures. This can cause particular problems on the roads as people make the most of the long weekend. Top car accident compensation law firm, Accident Advice Helpline, has issued a warning to drivers to take care on the roads at this unpredictable time of year.

    A spokesperson from the company said,

    “Sudden unexpected snowfall can cause huge problems on roads which are already heavily congested over the Easter weekend. People have generally put away their snow shovels and blankets in favour of buckets and spades and picnic rugs, so they are largely unprepared for hazardous conditions.”

    He went on to say, “We urge motorists to heed any advanced weather warnings and not to assume that we have seen the last of winter. Simple measures such as keeping a fold-up snow shovel and de-icer in the boot can make the difference between a successful trip, and a long wait to be rescued.”

    According to the Met Office, when Easter falls early in the year it is more likely to snow then than it is at Christmas. So it makes sense to be prepared for a White Easter even if temperatures have started to rise as they did in 2012.

    For anyone wanting to make a car accident compensation claim, Accident Advice Helpline can provide a recommendation for a specialist traffic accident lawyer on a no win, no fee* basis. The company deals with a variety of accident injury claims and can be reached on free phone number 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
