In Indiana, the mixture of ice, sleet, and snow on the roads are making it difficult for some drivers during this chaotic winter. Multiple Tow Truck companies have reported that there appeared to be fewer drivers on the roads during the morning commute, particularly on Indy-area highways. Tow truck companies say that dip in volume seemed to give road crews more time and space to work on road surfaces. The result is that fewer calls to towing companies than expected, except for the occasional slide off and jack-knifed semis. However, these towing companies say that they have seen their fair share of slide-offs and minor accidents on the local streets during the winter. The main concern to these companies is the temperature drop that comes in the evening that can cause re-freezing on the road surfaces.
Winter weather is always challenging to drivers in any state, but can be particularly dangerous if the roads have not been cleared of snow and ice. Safe driving on these roads is difficult, but when other drivers behave as though those dangerous road conditions are not there and drive as such, the situation can become perilous for you and others on the road. If you or someone you know is involved in an automobile collision through no fault of their own or caused by the reckless driving of another driver on unsafe road conditions, please contact the experienced legal team at Schiller Law Offices at 888-578-3100 or at IndyInjured.com to learn more about your potential right to compensation.
