What are the dangers of fall driving in West Virginia?

If you live in the state of West Virginia, you know that the fall months are absolutely beautiful. You should also know that this time of the year brings about some unique challenges on the roadways throughout the state.

Here are some of the many dangers of fall driving in West Virginia:

  • When the weather begins to cool, deer will make their way out of the woods and onto the roads. You need to watch for these creatures at all times.
  • Back to school traffic. Now that school is back in session you can expect more vehicles to be on the road, especially during the morning and afternoon hours.
  • Rain and strong wind. Heavy rain has a way of hitting the state during the fall months. The same holds true for strong wind.
  • Fog. Cool mornings can lead to heavy fog, which makes it a challenge to see the road in front of you. It also makes it more difficult for other drivers to see your vehicle.
  • Leaves. Wet leaves on the road can lead to slippery conditions.

These are just a few of the many things that you should think about when you take to the road in West Virginia during the fall months.

If you find yourself involved in an accident, such as if another car strikes yours, move to safety and call 911 for help.

Once you understand your injuries and assess the damage to your vehicle, you can turn your attention to your legal rights. There are steps you can take to seek compensation from the negligent party.
