How to avoid accidents in winter weather

It's only November, but winter weather is already rearing its ugly head in South Carolina and elsewhere. In order to avoid accidents when things get slippery outside, traffic safety experts have several driving tips for area drivers.

The first safety tip is for drivers to avoid bad weather whenever they can. Staying home when the weather gets dicey can potentially prevent many accidents. If drivers must go out in snowy or icy weather, they should keep their speed low and remember not to accelerate or brake too harshly, which can cause a vehicle to spin out of control. They should also be sure to leave plenty of space between their car and the one ahead of them to avoid rear-end collisions.

Roundabouts decrease intersection accidents.

Roundabouts are gradually replacing traffic lights in many cities in Minnesota and across the country. Wisconsin boasts the most roundabouts of any other state with 432, and Minnesota makes the top 10 with 252 roundabouts. Though they are a relatively new concept, with only 5,000 in existence in the United States, many experts are encouraging their implement as they are believed to be safer than traditional stoplights.

According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), more than 10,000 people died in car crashes at intersections in 2018. The majority of these deaths resulted due to head-on collisions, T-bone crashes and high-impact right-angle accidents. Red-light running and illegal turns often cause these types of accidents.
