The Nationwide Storms Require Knowledgeable Injuryboard Members

Comments Off

Despite having mostly a Minnesota practice, it’s not usual for our office to get calls from people injured across the county. Often it’s Minnesotans who have relatives or who find themselves in collisions in other states. The recent run of winter weather across the country has added to the need for help.

The advantage for being a part of a group like the Injuryboard, is that the members read and work with each other. So that where most people would have to guess about finding help in another state, each of us can get you in touch with a member who we can trust to help you right away.

So no matter where you are driving this winter be safe, and review the winter road tips from DPS and MnDOT :

  • Always use seat belts.

  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly on icy/snow-covered roads to retain traction and avoid skids.

  • Do not use cruise control.

  • Do not “power up” hills, which may cause wheels to spin. Build momentum before reaching a hill and do not stop while traveling uphill. Reduce speed before going downhill.

  • Know your brakes. Keep the heel of your foot on the floor and use the ball of the foot to apply firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal.

  • Give yourself plenty of travel time. Do not put your schedule before safety.

  • Clear snow and ice from vehicle windows, hood, headlights, brake lights and directional signals.

  • Headlights must be turned on when it is snowing or sleeting.

Most police officers say the key is usually to Just Slow Down.
