Spring is Time for Motorcycle Accidents
You can ask any experienced personal injury lawyer when motorcycle accidents most often take place. I guarantee you the response will be, “In the spring, of course. That’s when no one is looking for motorcycles.”
Of course as a motorcycle rider, you know all too well, most motorcycle accidents occur in the spring.
In northern Sweden, there’s a small town by the name of Kall. Kall is the Swedish word for “cold.” It is famous for ice driving – where, for a large fee, you can learn to drive high-performance cars flat-out on a frozen lake, and world-class rally-car racers test their vehicles for racing in the cold. Fortunately, all you can do if you spin your car out on the lake in Kall is drive into a snowbank, laughing, and watch the powder fly.
Not so in Central and Northern New York.
We’ve got plenty of snow and cold, all right. But a spin out in a whiteout on an icy overpass on one of our interstate highways won’t leave you laughing. It will most likely leave you seriously injured, and at risk of being struck by another car … or a truck or bus. Driving in winter in Central and Northern New York can lead even the best drivers to catastrophic outcomes.
