It is still that time of year when New Jersey residents have to worry about poor road conditions due to bad weather. Winter driving accidents occur far too frequently and numerous people are injured or lose their lives as a result.
It is hardly a shock to learn that young drivers are thought by many to be a serious danger to other motorists on the road. This is likely because they are widely perceived to be easily distracted and having no qualms with engaging in dangerous activities while driving such as talking on a cellphone or texting.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than three million people are injured every year in car accidents. Although the types of injuries suffered vary depending on the circumstances of the collision, there are certain types of injuries that are more common than others.
With the holiday season upon us, winter has arrived once again in New Jersey. Although this is a time of year to celebrate the season with family, the weather may make it more difficult for driving. Snow, slush and ice can make the roads more hazardous and difficult to maneuver on, making travel more dangerous. However, if you take the proper safety precautions, you can minimize your chances of being involved in a car accident.
