I-580 Wind Advisory
Statewide (January 8, 2021) – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) has warned of heavy winds along the I-580. Vehicles over nine-feet high are temporarily prohibited. Winds between 20-35 mph, with gusts as strong as 75 mph, have hit the area between Carson City and Reno. These winds could cause disastrous truck accidents, due to taller vehicles having a higher center of gravity.
Lerner and Rowe advises extreme caution if you’re driving on the I-580 during heavy winds. While tall vehicles are currently prohibited, not everyone will obey the rules. If you’ve gotten into a car accident due to a truck driver that ignored a wind advisory, Lerner and Rowe can help you seek maximum compensation. Source: NDOT
