Are you Familiar with the Dangers of Fall Driving?

Leaves on StreetWhile you do everything possible to keep your car in good condition, this doesn’t mean you are immune to mistakes on the roadway. As a driver, there are things you can do to prevent accidents.

During the fall months, there are many dangers to be aware of. If you don’t take the season into consideration, you could end up putting yourself in a bad position. Here are three things to keep in mind:

Leaves. During the fall months, leaves begin to fall off the trees and land on the roadway. As they get wet, roads can become slick, thus increasing the chance of an accident.

Fog. The fall months often bring fog, especially during the early morning hours. If you are driving in this condition, be sure to slow down. Also, don’t use your high beams, as this will actually decrease visibility.

Rain. Let’s face it: the fall season always brings a good amount of rain. Take precautions when the wet weather sets in. This will keep you, and other drivers, safer as the rain falls down.

These are just a few of the many dangers associated with fall driving. As long as you know what to expect, it is easier to avoid any trouble that could come your way.
