Buena Vista, Colorado – March 3, 2015 – Colorado-based towing company Alpine Towing and Recovery is stressing the importance of being wary of icy bridges, which can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and potentially lead to an accident. With the recent snowstorms and icy conditions, understanding how to properly cross icy bridges is paramount to your safety as a driver.
The biggest danger of losing control of your vehicle on an icy bridge is that there is nowhere to go – no road shoulders, no ditches or anything else to help you avoid a collision. Failure to maneuver your vehicle properly on an icy bridge can lead to 360 turns and other potentially fatal situations, making them a serious hazard for Colorado residents.
One of the main reasons that bridges are worse than roads during icy, cold conditions is because they are typically made of materials such as steel and concrete, which conduct heat well. Increased heat conduction leads to them releasing heat into the air easier, which then puts them at an increased risk of freezing.
The high-quality equipment and experienced drivers at Alpine Towing and Recovery make them a highly sought after towing company in the Colorado area for drivers that have experienced accidents due to icy bridges and other hazards of the cold, snowy weather. If you ever need towing during freezing and icy conditions, give them a call at 1-800-TOW-2-TOW.
