Fall can be a beautiful time of the year but the change in weather has its hazards. Here are a few tips to be safe in the Fall.
🍁🍂Don’t brake on leaves. Wet leaves can be as slippery as ice, especially if it’s been raining. Drive slowly through them and avoid hard braking. Leaves may obscure lane lines and other road markers, so pay attention to the edge of the road.
🌞😎Avoid sun glare. Now that we’ve passed the autumnal equinox the sunrise and sunset can make for more difficult driving due to sun glare. The sun perfectly aligns with east/west roadways during this time. Grab a good pair of sunglasses and keep your windshield clean.
🌉❄️Be careful on bridges. As the temperature begins to drop, morning frost can leave icy patches on bridges, overpasses and shaded spots on the road. Slow down.
Enjoy the beauty in the Fall colors and be safe on the road.
