Driving in snow and ice can be dangerous. Tires can slid and brakes can fail and if these happen, anybody can get into an accident.
Research has shown that 24 percent of all car crashes take place during bad weather conditions such as when there’s snow, ice and rain. Some 7,400 people get killed and more than 670,000 are injured in car accidents every year.
Authorities have also observed that many drivers underestimate the dangers that snow and ice can pose. What happens is they drive in their normal style and fail to adjust their speeds in harsh weather conditions.
