Can strong winds cause a car crash?

From intoxicated driving to distractions that divert the attention of drivers, traffic collisions happen for an array of reasons. However, you may want to watch out for other risks that could lead to a crash, such as strong winds. If you drive in Oakland, or on roads anywhere in the state of California, you may want to watch out for hazards that could be present when winds pick up.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, wind speed can have an impact on road safety in a number of different ways. For example, strong winds can affect the performance of cars and trucks, interfering with stability. Moreover, windy conditions can result in decreased visibility due to dust being whipped up or snow being blown around. In fact, wind can actually lead to obstructed lanes for a variety of reasons. For example, debris may be scattered on a road due to wind or strong gusts may cause tree limbs to fall onto the road. Moreover, wind can cause snow to pile up in certain spots.

If you have been involved in an accident that was caused by wind, or any other weather-related condition, you may be going through different challenges. For example, you may be struggling with physical pain, financial problems, or mental trauma. If someone else caused the crash and should have been more careful while they were driving in dangerous weather conditions, you should go over your different options as you try to restore some level of normalcy in your day-to-day life.
