Falling Rain, Falling Temps…Increased Risks
AAA Urges Motorists to Change Driving Behaviors with Change in Weather
With wet weather and falling temperatures in the forecast, AAA is reminding drivers that they are at greater risk for single vehicle crashes when roads are wet or icy.
“At the end of a mild, dry weekend, AAA wants to remind motorists of the need to change driving behaviors with the change in weather,” says Amy Parmenter, spokesperson for AAA in Greater Hartford.
The best way to ensure everyone’s safety when roads are wet or slick is to avoid driving if possible.
"So, for instance, anyone who can postpone their morning commute until temperatures increase slightly will be reducing their risk," Parmenter says.
If you must be on the roads, driving defensively is key.
“Especially with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is critical that folks slow down to ensure that everyone can get where they are going as safely as possible.” says Parmenter.
