Connecticut roads extremely hazardous due to snowbanks

You’re stopped in your car at an intersection. You’re trying to determine if it’s safe to drive ahead. But you can’t see a thing around the corner. The reason? There’s a huge snowbank blocking your view. Now, you’re forced to blindly drive ahead, unsure whether there’s another car speeding straight towards you.

Such a scenario has become far too common this winter, especially in Connecticut, one of the hardest hit areas this winter. Hartford has already received more than 80 inches of snow. That’s 53 inches more than average. And as one big snowstorm after another pummels New England week after week, huge snowbanks grow larger and larger. That means even narrower streets and even less visibility for drivers. And as temperatures rise and fall below freezing, frozen snowbanks often turn into solid walls of ice. Melting snow can also create black ice on roads and lead to slip and fall accidents.

Your safety should not be compromised because of dangerous snowbanks. Accidents happen, especially during the winter. What would you do if you had an accident because of a snowbank?
