WINNIPEG, Man. – It seems that poor weather isn’t a driver’s worst enemy after all.

At least, that’s the picture painted by the Manitoba Highways and Transportation Department’s study of 1998 traffic collisions.

In single vehicle accidents, roads were dry 58 per cent of the time, icy 14.9 per cent of the time, and wet 13.4 per cent of the time.

They were packed with snow in eight out of 100 accidents.

Skies were also more likely to be clear (63.2 per cent), rather than cloudy (19.3 per cent), snowy (6.2 per cent) or rainy (5.7 per cent). n
