Dangers of Reckless Driving in Inclement Weather

Drivers are responsible for paying careful attention to the road so that they can quickly and appropriately react to changing conditions, including weather. Inclement weather requires motorists to slow down and give themselves more room to maneuver, as issues including rain, ice, snow, and heavy winds can make driving much more difficult.

Unfortunately, however, some drivers fail to adjust for these adverse weather conditions, potentially endangering themselves as well as others on the road. If you have been hurt by a reckless driver in Dallas, you should talk to the team at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter today to learn more about your legal rights and options.

Adverse Weather Conditions and Dangerous Driving

Many people feel anxious when driving in adverse weather conditions because of the many challenges that ice, snow, wind, and rain can pose. Driving in inclement weather conditions can be hazardous due to the following:

  • Decreased visibility
  • Increased braking distance requirements
  • Storm debris on roadway
  • Icy or slick roads
  • Road defects caused by bad weather

Motorists should take into account these issues and adjust their driving accordingly. Should a reckless driver choose to disregard this important responsibility, he or she can be held financially accountable for any ensuing damages.
