In the midst of winter, Ohio drivers may find themselves driving under harsh weather conditions. Even as they take precautions to avoid accidents, many cities use commercial vehicles to remove ice and snow from the roads in order to further reduce the possibility of wrecks. These commercial vehicles are under tremendous pressure to cover a lot of ground in a little amount of time and may themselves not be taking necessary precautions on icy roads.
Salt trucks, snow plow operators and snow plow removing equipment, the very equipment tasked with creating a safe roadway for motorists, sometimes cause auto accidents and fatalities across the state in their haste to get the job done. Given the nature of the equipment, crashes involving snowplow or salt truck can have serious repercussions, including serious, permanent and debilitating injuries, if not death.
