For Pennsylvania residents, the winter months mean brushing snow off their car, shoveling their sidewalks and additional traffic. Those from colder regions understand that driving in the snow means reducing speed, slowly applying their brakes, not using cruise control when snow and ice are present and even taking evasive action, if their vehicle hits ice and loses control. When a driver fails to take caution during dangerous weather, their lack of actions could be considered negligent and could result in a serious crash.
Whether it is snowing or not, drivers in Pennsylvania understand that the winter months often mean bad road conditions. Even when there is no snow, ice could be present and could cause some hazards. Drivers should take extra precautions to ensure they can maneuver their vehicle properly, and stop for signs and signals. A driver who is traveling too fast for conditions or is distracted could cause a collision. This could result in serious injuries and even fatalities.
Pennsylvania drivers often see common accidents on the roadways, such as fender benders. But, some will witness massive and tragic accidents involving several vehicles, or bizarre crashes involving objects or things other than motor vehicles.

Pennsylvania residents are aware that the roadways are used by various vehicle used for different purposes. Whether a person is traveling to work, enjoying a ride on their motorcycle, making a large shipment across the country or running an errand, an accident can happen at any time. Although motorcyclists are less frequently seen during the colder months, drivers should constantly be on the lookout for smaller vehicles that could go unnoticed in a blind spot.

When they are involved in a crash, even when a biker and their passenger are wearing a helmet, they could still suffer serious injuries or even death.
Residents in Pennsylvania are observing others enjoying the warmer weather. Drivers can be seen traveling with their windows down, convertibles with their tops down and an increase of motorcycles on the roadway. Although some safety practices can reduce the chances of being injured on a motorcycle, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries or even death. These small vehicles can frequently go undetected by a driver who is not being attentive. Drivers should be aware of these small vehicles and their ability to hide in blind spots. Both automobile drivers and motorcycle drivers should use extra precaution when traveling at nighttime.
Pennsylvania residents witness motorcyclists on the roadways during most times of the year and in all kinds of weather. However, in the summer months, motorcyclists often can be seen in large groups, either traveling solo or driving with a passenger. No matter if they are driving across the country or just down the road, motorcycle accidents can happen at any time and in any type of setting. Drivers may not always be aware of these much smaller vehicles because they can be hidden in blind spots and also are able to maneuver quickly between vehicles.
