St Louis, MO – Slick Weather Causes Several Crashes on I-55Icy road conditions are one of the leading causes of vehicle crashes during the winter months. When roads are icy, they become slick and dangerous, making it difficult for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles. This can lead to serious accidents and injuries. There are a few things you can do to help avoid crashing on icy roads. These include:

  • Drive slowly and leave plenty of space between you and other vehicles.
  • Be especially careful on bridges and overpasses, as they tend to freeze first.
  • Avoid sudden stops or turns, as this can cause your vehicle to slide.
  • If you do start to slide, don’t panic – gently turn the wheel in the direction you want the car to go and let off the gas until you regain control.
  • Keep your headlights and taillights clean so that other drivers can see you clearly.
  • Stay alert and pay attention to the road at all times.
