Winter is Coming!


After today, the highs forecasted for the rest of the week will be in the 50s and you know what that means: winter is coming!  This has been a warm autumn thus far and it may have led folks to wrongly believe that there is still plenty of time to prepare for wintry weather and driving.  What can you do to be ready?

  • If you have teenage drivers in your household, consider registering them in classes to help them drive safely in snowy/icy conditions.
  • Check your tire tread and replace all-weather tires before the snow flies or schedule an appointment to have snow tires put on.
  • Stock up your car with winter driving necessities like an ice scraper, kitty litter, blankets, water, a flashlight, a shovel, and food items like protein bars. 

In the coming week, elevations above 8,500 will begin to accumulate snow and roads may be icy. 

Don’t invite a winter weather car slide-off, mechanical problem, or crash by being unprepared.  If you are involved in a winter weather crash, call 9-1-1 and take measures to keep warm until help arrives.  If you were hurt, get medical attention promptly and then contact the Colorado Springs Injury Attorneys at Rosenbaum & Wootton, P.C. to schedule a consultation so we can help you obtain full compensation for your damages from the responsible party’s insurance company by calling or texting us at 719.634.0102 or click on this link to schedule your FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
