Why good winter driving habits are important in Texas

Texas is not exactly known for its bad winters. Unlike states in the northern part of the country, Texas does not typically get a lot of snow in the winter.

You might think that this means you do not have to worry about driving safely in the winter, but this is not true. In fact, living in a state like Texas often means that the chance of a winter car accident is higher, since drivers are not used to driving in the snow.

Furthermore, Texas has experienced winter storms in recent years, which means you should be prepared to drive in winter conditions.

Check your vehicle

Before you go out on the road in winter weather, make sure your car is in good working condition. Fill your gas tank, check your battery and tires and make sure that you have supplies such as a scraper and sand in your car in case you get stuck.

Pay attention to weather reports and check road conditions. Even if you must go out in bad conditions, keeping up with the current conditions can alert you to any closed roads or accidents.

Drive slowly

Drive slower when it is snowing or the roads are icy, no matter what. Do not stress about getting to your destination; everyone understands that people may be late when the roads are bad.

No matter how many precautions you take, you cannot change the fact that there are other drivers on the roads. An accident in winter weather often causes serious injuries and major vehicle damage.

Did negligence cause your accident?

When another driver causes your accident, their actions could be considered negligence. A personal injury action for negligence can help you recover damages, but you must prove negligence occurred.

This can be difficult, especially if the other driver blames you or the weather for the accident. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney can increase your chance of recovery.
