Aberdeen Solicitor Chris Gordon warns drivers that they are legally liable for the consequences if they crash their cars through skidding on snow or ice.
Mr Gordon a partner with Thompsons Personal Injury Solicitors based in King St, Aberdeen said: “It might sound harsh, but the law is unequivocal on this point.
“Motorists are obliged to take account of the conditions under which they are driving.
“So if they fail to allow for snow or icy conditions and crash into another vehicle they will be liable for the costs of repairs.
“They could also be sued by anyone who suffers injuries as a consequence, and that includes people in their own vehicle, another vehicle or anyone else such as a passer-by”.
