Q: How can “good” weather cause West Palm Beach truck accidents?
A: Most Florida days are absolutely beautiful. Sunny and warm without a cloud in the sky-surely this could never be seen as “inclement weather.”
While this type of weather is ideal for the beach, it can be dangerous-even fatal-on Florida roads. Here are just a few factors that can turn a gorgeous day into one you will never forget:
- Sun: You may not think that something so bright could actually decrease truck visibility in West Palm Beach, but many early-morning commuters have found that to be exactly the case. The sun shining in a driver’s eyes or muddling the color of a stoplight can affect stopping, and in some cases render the driver blind.
- Long nights: The threat doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Summer weather continues into the night, encouraging late-night parties that add to the number of drunk drivers in West Palm Beach. Many of these will enter a highway in the very early morning-peak hours for a truck accident.
- Higher traffic: These beautiful days often carry a greater risk of an accident purely because everyone is out enjoying it. A higher population density means more accidents, especially when driving near cities where different types of fair-weather vehicles will be used.
