Georgia drivers: Drive safe, whatever the weather

Spring weather can cause major headaches for motorists across Georgia. Heavy winds and rain can make drivers anxious and in a hurry to get to their destination. However, while it may be tempting to take risks to get out of the storm, doing so can only make matters worse if careless driving causes a serious accident.

Already, spring storms have affected drivers here in Atlanta. Recently, storms in the area added some stress for drivers on highways and side streets who were already battling road closures and congestion. In light of this, it can be a good time to remind readers of some simple ways to stay safe during the spring storm season.

Slow down and stay calm

It is not unusual for drivers to be scared or stressed out when they get stuck in a storm. However, panicking is not going to help. Take a deep breath, assess the options and choose the one that allows you to get to where you're going without adding more anxiety. This might mean getting off a busy highway or choosing a longer route home to avoid potentially flooded roads.

Give yourself more time and other drivers more space

Roads can get very slippery or flooded in heavy rains. Leave more space between you and the driver in front of you to avoid having to slam on your brakes. 

Be alert

Put your phone down or pull over to check the weather or review your route on your GPS. If you aren't paying attention to the road, you can fail to see slowing traffic or debris in front of you, which can lead to a catastrophic collision.

Know your options if others don't heed these tips

Unfortunately, even if you do all these things, you can still get hurt in a crash with a driver who failed to make these same decisions. If you are injured in an accident caused by a reckless, unsafe driver, it is important that you consult an attorney to assess your legal options. In many cases, you can file a legal claim to collect compensation for damages. While money cannot undo a crash, it can help you weather the storm of serious injuries.
