The throes of winter are upon us. And even though we live in the beautiful state of Colorado, where regular appearances of the sun and some milder weather patterns spare us some of the worst prolonged weather patterns, we still have our share of days with less-than-ideal road conditions. That’s when during my commute to and from Denver, or random errands, I stay vigilant for cars with Texas, California, and Florida license plates.
Why? Odds are that the driver is less experienced in handling a vehicle on the snow or ice. Even so, despite your best skill at winter driving and awareness of those around you, sometimes an accident is unavoidable. A couple of years ago during a heavy snowfall on the Interstate, we got bumped into the concrete barrier by a car going too fast for conditions. Thankfully, no one was hurt in that incident. And hopefully neither you nor I ever faces a serious injury because of an auto accident. But at least it gives peace of mind to know there is help available nearby — including not only the needed medical care but those who can fight to make sure you are treated fairly and don’t go broke in the process.
Remember: Please drive safely out there!
