Alabama Automobile Accident Attorney Fog

Alabama Automobile Accident Attorney Fog

Alabama Automobile Accident Attorney Fog: With Alabama having the 7th highest number of traffic fatalities from 2003-2012, we all should practice defensive driving while operating an automobile on Alabama highways and interstates, especially when the weather is less than ideal.

When we discuss adverse driving conditions, we all think about rain and snow, but driving in fog can be just as dangerous; if not more so.

According to a November 2014 report I read from AAA, we are most likely to have foggy weather conditions during the winter months, in the early morning (although it can become foggy at any time of day). This is because when the weather is cooler, water vapors are more likely to condense and form fog. Fog can seriously lessen visibility, and high beams are not helpful in fog as the headlights reflect off the water droplets in the fog, actually making it harder to see clearly with your high beams on.

Many people feel safer driving in fog when they are close enough to see the back of vehicles in front of them, but this behavior sets the stage for a wreck. Fog tends to contribute to automobile accidents which involve more vehicles and more serious injuries.

Slowdown in foggy conditions. Better to be late and safe.

Additionally, you should bear in mind that just because the speed limit is 70 mph, it doesn't mean it is safe to drive at this speed, especially in foggy conditions. Because of this fact, in Alabama, you can be ticket for driving at an unsafe speed given the driving conditions regardless of the posted speed limit.

If you or a family member has been involved in an automobile accident and you have any questions about your rights in Alabama, don't hesitate to contact and talk with one of the experienced Alabama Automobile Accident Lawyers at Powell and Denny.
