Driving safely when there's ice and snow can be difficult, but with a few tips you can make sure you stay safe on the roads. First, remember that you shouldn't drive at normal speeds on an icy road. When the roads are icy, no vehicle should travel over 45 mph. Even traveling as slow as 10 mph can lead to you sliding off the roads, so slow down.
Being prepared for winter is a must-do in New Hampshire; the snow and ice can hit suddenly, and cold, frigid temperatures make it hard to get around without planning. Since there are additional hazards in winter, it's wise to take some time to prepare. For example, before you even leave your home, you should look up the weather conditions for the day. Knowing that a snow storm is rolling in can help you arrange your travels when you're least likely to get caught in it.
Pedestrians are always at risk when they're on or near roads, but drivers need to be careful when they know that others could be on the roads or near them while running, biking or participating in other activities. If a runner or pedestrian is obeying the law and gets hit by a driver, then that driver should be held accountable and cover the expenses of the pedestrian's recovery.
Paying attention when you drive is of the utmost importance, especially when there could be stopped traffic or upcoming construction zones. If a driver is speeding or moving too quickly to stop suddenly, then there's a risk that a crash could occur like in this case involving the death of a woman who was hit while slowing down on the highway.
