Driving Safety Tips
Expect more animals on the roads. Stay alert and know that anything is possible. Spring brings more activity in areas where wildlife is common. Slow down so you can stop safely if animals are on or near the roadway. Drive at a speed that will allow you to stop within the assured clear distance ahead.
If you have been injured in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence, call the personal injury attorneys at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. right away. You may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in a car accident at the fault of someone else.
