Personal Injury Solicitors discuss snowy road conditions
Posted on 31st January 2020
Following the longest month that most of us will experience (financially, we mean), you may be thinking, yes, bring on February! However, following heavy snowfall across the UK, road-users around the country are being warned of the risk of danger on the roads, as black ice covers many roads.
The metro warned that the adverse weather conditions have led to ‘multiple crashes’ on Cornwall’s A30, as well as causing the closure of the A3079 near Okehampton due to the snowy carriageway.
According to express.co.uk, whilst grit can be used to be help cars from losing grip on the roads, it can also cause damage to the car itself. For example, if it becomes stuck underneath the car, it can lead to corrosion of the bodywork, as well as denting the exterior paintwork of the car, and damaging alloy wheels or windscreens.
Not only limited to vehicular damage, the snow and ice on the roads could cause issues for road users in other ways: if you’re involved in a road traffic collision, the snow may increase your chances of losing control of your vehicle.
