Earlier this month, a powerful snow storm rolled in over Connecticut. Not only did it leave much of the state covered in three feet of snow, but more than 67,000 people lost power to their homes-according to Connecticut Light and Power. On an even more tragic note, five of the eleven fatalities that have been attributed to storm-related accidents took place in our very own state. Of the reported deaths, one woman was hit by a car while using a snow blower, one man was buried under several feet of snow around the exterior of his house, one man died from a slip and fall on his porch and another died while attempting to excavate his car from the snow.

Although these grave incidents are the unfortunate aftermath of Mother Nature's fury, it is important for everyone to remember to keep their personal safety in mind. With much of the state still recovering from the devastation the storm, transit of all kind remains halted at a stand-still. Even so, however, some are now attempting to get back out on the road. It is for this reason that you should remain aware of the potential dangers that you could be facing if you are interested in getting behind the wheel anytime soon. First, you should remember to drive slowly and deliberately, as slick ice and snow still pose a serious threat.

Additionally, it is important to remain alert and cautious at all times when in the vicinity of other drivers-as it is all too easy for a single collision to result in a multi-car pile-up when you are navigating through less than favorable conditions.
