Snow and ice create some of the most hazardous driving conditions possible. Across the nation, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has found that more than 1,300 people are fatally injured every year in car accidents on pavement made hazardous by snow, slush, or ice. In addition to this, 116,800 people are left with debilitating personal injuries. According to the FHWA, 24 percent of car crashes due to weather occur on snowy, slushy or icy pavement, with 15 percent happening while snow and sleet are actively falling. It is integral to take added precautions when driving wintry weather.
