Snow vs. rain
We know that challenging weather conditions increase our risks while driving on roadways. Across the U.S., rain causes more fatal accidents than snow. However, in the snowy Rocky Mountain region of the country in states like Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming, snow causes more fatal vehicle accidents than rain.
Snow vs. fog
When comparing snow versus fog, more fatal crashes are caused by snow across the nation. Not surprisingly, in warm coastal states, fog is a bigger danger.
Crosswinds vs. sleet
Sleet is a bigger killer in most of the U.S., but crosswinds are a more likely problem from California to Colorado as well as in sunny Florida.
