Bad Weather Auto Accidents: Rain, Sleet, Slush or Snow

 

On average, more than 100 people die every day from car crashes in the United States. For a single day, the death toll can range from 45 to 252 people.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, 44%, nearly half of the nation’s weather related accidents are attributed to snow/sleet, or icy/slushy pavement. In addition, nearly 70 percent of the U.S. population lives in these snowy regions.

According to SafeWinterRoads.com:

  • Over 1,300 people are killed and more than 116,800 people are injured in vehicle crashes on snowy, slushy or icy pavement annually.
  • Every year, nearly 900 people are killed and nearly 76,000 people are injured in vehicle crashes during snowfall or sleet.
  • Each year, 24 percent of weather-related vehicle crashes occur on snowy, slushy or icy pavement and 15 percent happen during snowfall or sleet.
  • Freeway speeds are reduced by 3 to 13 percent in light snow and by 5 to 40 percent in heavy snow.
  • Average speeds on arterial roads decline by 30 to 40 percent on snowy or slushy pavement.
