Weather conditions may have a detrimental effect on Illinois roads at this time of the year. Drivers who are not experienced enough to drive in adverse weather conditions may want to avoid doing so. Nevertheless, those who do take to the roads must operate their vehicles in a responsible manner that is suitable to the conditions. Losing control of a vehicle on a slippery road can happen in an instant, and reducing speed and increasing following distances may avoid a car accident.
