Expecting Wintry Roads on Spring Weekend

Expecting Wintry RoadsROCHESTER, N.Y. – After a week of warmer temperatures the region hadn’t seen in over a month, road crews are reaching for the snowplow keys once again.

This time, wintry weather is sweeping across the northeast bringing rain, snow and sleet, making roads extremely slippery heading into the weekend.

“Drivers might think they’d be used to it by now but this time of year poses different driving challenges in wintry weather around Rochester,” car accident attorney Ross Cellino said. “That snow that melted can flash freeze into ice and the rain can wash away the chemicals crews used to pretreat the roads.”

The back and forth mixture of rain and snow make for some of the most dangerous road conditions. In the Great Lakes region, fog can further limit visibility for drivers and increase the likelihood of an accident.

“There’s a recorded spike in the number of accidents when the weather is anything but sunny,” Cellino said. “We’ve had several clients suffer head, neck and back injuries after a crash that happened in wintry springtime weather.”

Car accident lawyers advise all drivers and passengers inside vehicles to wear a seat belt this weekend. If a car or bus driver loses control, a seat belt improves the chance of avoiding serious injury. Drivers are also advised to be aware of other drivers, especially those behind them.

“Nearly one in every four accidents are caused by tailgaters,” Cellino said. “In this kind of weather, avoid those who are following you too closely.”

Drivers are advised to always travel in their designated highway lanes and to safely move over for faster traffic.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
