3 Fall Safe Driving Tips
The leaves are turning, there is a cool nip in the air, and the holiday season is just around the corner. Autumn has arrived. However, this beautiful season brings with it some special road hazards that drivers should be aware of.
When it comes to slipping and sliding, wet leaves can be as dangerous as ice. Always proceed with caution through fallen leaves, and try to avoid hard braking on any slick surface. Fallen leaves can also obscure lane lines, so take care to stay in your lane and pay attention to the edge of the road.
The first 15-45 minutes before sunset and after sunrise, on and near the autumnal equinox can make driving especially hazardous due to sun glare. The sun lines up perfectly with east/west roads during this time of year, so make sure you have a good pair of sunglasses handy and keep your windshield clean.
