There’s no doubt that the weather has made major headlines over the last few weeks. Whether it’s the record floods in Louisiana and Mississippi or the rain and wind we experienced from Hurricane Hermine, it’s clear that Mother Nature is a force to be reckoned with. But even a common thunderstorm can cause havoc on our roads and highways. Every time we have any type of bad weather, you can bet that the number of traffic accidents will increase. That’s why you need to have an action plan ready in case you need weather-related collision repair.
The Federal Highway Administration estimates that approximately 22 percent of all auto accidents are weather-related. Wind, precipitation, fog, flooded roadways, and poor pavement conditions can all be contributing factors to a collision. (Check out these tips on what to do if you’re involved in a car accident.)
Of course, wrecks aren’t the only threat when bad weather rolls in. Your vehicle may need auto body repair for hail damage or after a tree branch falls on it. There’s no season of the year in our Rock Hill, SC service area when we don’t see damage that’s weather-related.
