    It always amazes me that it is often reported that “The weather is to blame for the accident”

    It is not the weather per-se that is to blame for road accidents.

    It is however mostly the drivers failure to adjust their driving habits to suit the weather conditions that causes accidents in bad weather. (Failure to slow down, failure to switch lights on, etc, etc. etc.)

    This shows that the basics are never taught to most drivers and although they pass the test (or buy the license) to operate a vehicle, the actual driving skills are sadly lacking.

    A large number of drivers still do not wear seatbelts and this also contributes to a larger number of drivers being killed as opposed to just being injured in the event of an accident…
