A few tips in navigating the summer roads in Ontario

As a personal injury lawyer, I often see the unfortunate perils of car accidents and injuries. While I’m relieved that the dangerous winter driving conditions are behind us, it doesn’t seem to have an impact on the number of driving fatalities.

Myself, Jeremy Diamond, and the team at Diamond & Diamond looked further into this and discovered that fatalities are actually highest in clear visibility:

“The Ministry of Transportation published an Ontario Road Safety Annual Report that provides statistics on fatalities and road injuries. The report shows that fatalities in summer months are much higher, approximately double, than in winter months. In 2011, the MTO reported that approximately 84% of fatalities occurred in bright skies with clear visibility opposed to slippery or poor conditions.”
