How Do Arizona Car Crashes Happen on Wet Roads?
For most people, it’s obvious why wet roads can lead to car crashes. After all, wet roads mean slippery roads and slippery roads make it more difficult to control your vehicle, even when you are doing everything right and driving defensively. And even when you are driving safely, you may become the victim of some other driver’s negligence. Some of the most dangerous actions negligent drivers take on wet roads include, but are not limited to:
- Speeding: Speeding on wet roads is practically asking for trouble. Greater speeds increase stopping distance, and paired with wet roads and wet brakes (both of which also increase stopping distance) there’s no telling how much time and distance a vehicle will require in order to come to a full stop.
- Tailgating: Just like speeding, tailgating comes with a high cost on wet roads. While it is already difficult to avoid a fender bender while tailgating on a dry road, avoiding an accident of this nature on a wet road can be at least twice as difficult.
- Swerving in and out of traffic: Drivers who swerve in and out of traffic on a wet road are more likely to hydroplane or skid on the roadway, causing an accident. They are also more likely to cause others driver to stop short or swerve and lose control of their own vehicles.
- Driving without proper lighting on your vehicle: Naturally, we think that accidents on wet roads are caused by things like speeding or tailgating or swerving in and out of traffic alone. But wet roads often come with decreased visibility. A lack of proper lighting can make it difficult, if not impossible, to see the traffic ahead in enough time to respond appropriately.
