Cold Ottawa weather partly to blame for increase in Ottawa accidents.

Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…It’s not getting any warmer out there Ottawa. The temperatures have dropped yet again and it looks like there is another very cold snap settling into our city. With this cold weather comes, icy roads and Ottawa accidents. This cold winter weather is one of the causes  for hundreds of Ottawa accidents yesterday, including a multiple vehicle accident on Hwy. 417

What does this mean for you?  Well the truth is as we all know, accidents happen.  The only thing you can do is try as much as possible to prevent them from happening by slowing down, making sure your winter tires are in good shape and being extra attentive while driving in difficult conditions.  You can only control your own driving and hopefully those drivers around you do the same.  Yes, the commutes have been messy and unfortunately there seem to be more messy commutes in the days that lie ahead, as temperatures in Ottawa continue to drop. Let’s hope this extreme Ottawa weather causes people to stop and think for a minute about their driving choices.

Slow down, drive safely and arrive alive.
