Published on Mar 9, 2016 at 2:56 pm in Car Wrecks.

On average, there are 5,760,000 motor vehicle crashes yearly in the United States.  About 22% of those crashes, approximately 1,259,000, are weather related.  Of those approximately 1,259,000 weather related crashes, 73% occur on wet pavement and 46% occur during rainfall.  Crashes involving wet pavement and rain account for approximately 21% of all car wreck fatalities.  For more weather related crash statistics, check out the following U.S. Department of Transportation link: https://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/weather/q1_roadimpact.htm

Rain is in the forecast in Arkansas for the next five days.  McMath Woods encourages all Arkansas motorists to allow more time for their trips, put more distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you because your stopping distances will be reduced, and to drive slower.  Stay safe out there.
