A recent rain brought over 500 accidents to Southern California according to a Huntington Beach accident attorney blog. We rarely contend with wet roads and our freeways are built to still drive relatively fast when things are wet. However, Southern California has one unique feature other large cities do not. Because we have little rain, our highways and streets accumulate oil and grit that causes our roads to be more slippery.
When you are on the road this holiday season, make sure you give yourself extra room, drive slower and always keep an eye out for the other guy. Frequently, accidents can be prevented by a little more patience and caution on your part. Be safe and have a happy holiday season.
