Of the roughly 5,891,000 vehicle crashes in the United States each year, approximately 21% occur as a result of adverse weather, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, resulting in 6,000 fatalities and 445,000 injuries. Rain, wind, lightning, sleet and snow can all take a toll, whether you’re driving on a major interstate or a country road. So how do you stay safe?
