By C. Kevin Leonard – New Hampshire Personal Injury Attorney
Now that winter is here it is important to think about the hazards of snow and ice accumulation on vehicles during the winter season. Snow and ice falling from a moving vehicle can create hazardous driving conditions for vehicles travelling around them. To avoid this danger, it is necessary to take reasonable steps to remove the snow or ice accumulations.
Under New Hampshire State law, a driver can be cited for driving a vehicle in a manner that “endangers” or “is likely to endanger any person or property.” This may include large amounts of snow and ice that fall from a vehicle.
When driving, you should leave sufficient space when following vehicles to give yourself enough time to react and be able to avoid any snow/ice that may fall from another vehicle.
