is a good reason to go to work late today if the roads are icy.
headlines in Pittsburgh shouted out the havoc
that was going on in traffic due to
icy roads. Were you one of the commuters
inching your way toward work hoping not to slide into trouble? Here are some
interesting reasons why you may want to consider waiting until the ice is
cleared or melted before you drive.
average salary for an American worker with a
high school education is $31,664.00 or about $517.00 per week after taxes. The average auto insurance policy carries a $500.00 deductible for both
collision and comprehensive claims. A
recent story about insurance claims filed due
to accidents caused by
icy road conditions says that icy roads will
typically cause twice the normal number of auto insurance claims.
If you get up this morning and the roads are icy you know you are twice as
likely to be in an accident. If you are, and you file an insurance claim, you
will have to pay your deductible. If your deductible is the average amount,
$500.00, and you are making $15.00 or less per hour you stand a good chance of
losing 25% of your monthly salary trying to get to your morning destination, so
choose wisely about getting to
work or school on time!
