Snowfall has been scheduled to fall throughout Lancaster County this week, with forecasters suggesting it will bring frigid temperatures well into the midweek. With daytime temperatures at an all-time low and workers anticipating driving to and from work, this could make for dangerous road conditions – and a likelihood for more accidents. The National Weather Service has anticipated that less than an inch of snow could accumulate on Tuesday.

When Accidents Involve Snowy Conditions

snowfall in lancaster countyAll too often, adverse road conditions cause catastrophic accidents that could lead to severe injuries to those involved. Those who share the roadways must anticipate these adverse conditions and drive reasonably under them, as it is the responsibility of other drivers on the roads to watch out for snow and icy conditions at all costs. This means checking for ice before they head out onto the roads, maintaining a steady speed on the roadways so there are no emergency stops that could cause an accident, never braking sharply, and leaving extra following distance between vehicles.

If a reckless driver causes an accident, they could be liable for injuries, as every driver is supposed to ensure the safety of others. Drivers must adjust their driving to what they see on the roads, which could leave them a negligent party.
