The duty of drivers on icy road accidents in Wisconsin always a question. The accumulation of ice on the highway does not excuse drivers from being careful. When the first nasty snow and sleet whips up on a December night and we're traveling down I94 from Waukesha to Milwaukee for a basketball game, we have all seen drivers ignore the dangerous conditions and recklessly speed by. If they cause an accident are they negligent? Icy road collisions cause medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering.
