In addition to following standard traffic laws, when winter weather hits, drivers have other responsibilities as they travel the area the roadways. Failure to follow these driving rules could result in driver negligence.

They examine the road and weather conditions at the time of the crash and compare the reports given by each of the drivers in the accident and any witnesses. In addition, they assess the vehicle, the road markings and many other factors to determine if any negligence occurred. While police officers do their best to report the accident as they understand it, they are human and can make mistakes.
