With temperatures plunging to sub-zero during British winters, many West Devon car accident claims will be based on the freezing conditions in one way or another. It could be to do with ice on the road; people not cleaning their windscreens properly before they start their journeys, or not having good quality bespoke screen-wash solutions in their windscreen-wash reservoir tanks. Anything that interferes with a driver’s visibility of the road, or with a car’s traction to the road surface, can easily result in an accident that causes injury. Special care needs to be taken when driving in hazardous weather conditions.
The danger of black ice
Black ice is one of the most insidious causes of road traffic accidents there is. The problem is that it is totally invisible. The first time you become aware of it is when you feel your car begin to skate of its own free will. It can be a really frightening experience, and to the uninitiated, it can easily lead to losing control of the car.
Black ice usually only appears in small isolated patches, beneath trees or bridges, usually in the early hours of the morning, or the early evening. Because patches are normally so small, you’ll usually regain traction within a second or two. That’s when you can make any adjustments you feel necessary. Keeping a cool head and not panicking will help to lessen the need for raising some car accident claims that you could otherwise find yourself facing.
