The weather also plays a vital role in determining the road conditions a driver has to face while driving especially on the highways. In case of rain and storm the roads become slippery and thus driving the car at higher speeds become difficult. Same is the case when snow falls in winters. With winters arrived in States, it brings with it fog that creates lower visibility on highways and even the roads within the cities. So drivers are advised to take precautionary measures to avoid accidents. But even after all the safety measures; the accidents between vehicles are inevitable on Highways.
You are driving on a highway slowly in fog taking care of the conditions around, but it is always likely that you can hit a car in front or some vehicle hits your car from behind. So as a driver you should always be prepared to face such kind of situations too. So the first thing to do after a car accident is to quickly judge the situation and level of damage that has been caused to victims and call 911. Move away from the vehicle since it can catch fire. Donot get into a fight with the other driver. If you are able to support yourself attend the other injured until the help arrives.
