Safety Tips for Driving in Norfolk Storm Conditions
Heavy rains have fallen in recent days around Norfolk, Virginia, and much of the city is covered in water. Such flooding can make traveling along the region’s roadways extremely dangerous. The Norfolk car accident lawyers at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers have several tips to help keep you and your loved ones safe until floodwaters subside.
- Stay Home– If you don’t have to be on the road, refrain from driving.
- Know Your Route– If you must drive, know the road conditions along your route. WAVYTV 10 News created a list of the roads that are closed due to flooding in our area. If these roads are along your route, find an alternative way to get to your destination.
- Turn Around– If you are approaching standing water in a road, never attempt to drive through it. Your vehicle could become flooded, putting you and your passengers’ lives in danger. Instead, turn around and find another route.
- Communicate– Let others know of your intention to drive and when you should be expected to reach your destination. Once you’ve arrived, call and let those individuals know you’re safe.
Keeping Virginians safe and protected is one of our top priorities at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, and our Norfolk personal injury attorneys hope these tips help to keep you and your loved ones safe on the road until the flooding dissipates.
