ct-snow-car-accidentDebris on United States roadways caused more than 200,000 auto accidents between 2011 and 2014, according to a new study released. Over 500 of those accidents resulted in an accident fatality.

The statistics are staggering:

These accidents are preventable if drivers follow these safety tips for cargo:

  1. During winter months, keep your car’s roof cleared of snow and ice. Not only does this keep snow and ice from flying off your car and preventing possible auto accidents, it is the law in Connecticut.
  2. If moving cargo in your pick-up truck, keep items securely fastened.
  3. Transporting leaves or grass clippings? Keep them contained as this type of flying debris can cause visibility problems for other drivers on the road.
  4. Keep an eye on the wear of your tires. If a tire explodes on the roadway, it can leave pieces on the road.
