As much as the local news would like you to believe that the weather reports are dependable, they are not. Sometimes, a driver finds himself amidst a sudden weather change, and must push on to their ending point. This change in weather may not have been something the driver was prepared for and an accident may occur. It may not be the weather alone that was the cause of the accident, but the condition of the road combined with the weather. The city responsible for maintaining the road may be liable to the driver for not foreseeing the dangerous road condition in certain weather conditions.
