Inclement Weather

This case involved a car and a tractor-trailer traveling on a snow covered highway. The tractor-trailer was making a u-turn at a median crossover. There was a sign against making a u-turn at that location. The investigating officer cited the car for "Failure to keep proper lookout" and the tractor-trailer for "Failure to observe road signs". The driver of the car had adequate time to receive and avoid the collision, though roadway conditions did reduce the stopping ability of the car. Had the road not been icy the car may have been able to slow enough to avoid the impact. When driving in icy, or other poor roadway conditions, be sure to increase the distance between your vehicle and others to give yourself more time to react and brake in an emergency.
