Are There More Car Accidents In Springfield Missouri During Bad Weather?

As a personal injury attorney, I was thinking about how many car accidents there must have been during the last few days due to the cold, snow, ice, and wind. My thought was, maybe there is a safe driving campaign I could start to remind people to drive safe during these times. With this in mind, I reviewed the 2012 Springfield Traffic Crash Book, and to my surprise learned that inclement weather is not responsible for nearly as many accidents as I suspected. When the weather clears up, please continue to pay attention while driving.

  • 6945 accidents in 2012;
  • 5841 of the accidents occurred in dry weather; and,
  • 5387 of those accidents occurred during the day.
