March a Dangerous Month for Ohio Car Accidents

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Mar 8, 2015 3:13:46 PM

As Cleveland car accident lawyers, we take pride in not only representing those injured by driver negligence but also in raising traffic safety awareness.  For example, many Ohio drivers do not realize that January and February are the safest driving months of the year in terms of fatalities and injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents.  Accidents that result in property damage remain high during the first two months on the calendar, but the slow speeds and overall cautiousness of drivers in snowy conditions are two factors that lead to lowered injury and death rates.
