Watch out for the ice! Chicago Winters are no laughing matter. With cold weather and plenty of snowfall, both driving and walking conditions can be compromised. Unfortunately, as temperatures drop, accidents often rise.
Whether you are walking or driving, ice and snow can make it more likely that you will suffer an accident. While driving, ice can make stopping slower, and sliding or skidding more frequent. It is important to always drive cautiously, but even more so with inclement weather. It is not only you’re driving that you should watch for, but the driving of other’s, as well.
Falling accidents also pick up in the winter months. Ice can often be hidden or hard to see. If you are walking and the temperatures are cold enough for water to freeze make sure you take your time and watch your step.
