Fall Driving Hazards!

Fall weather is on its way and that means fall hazards are as well. Autumn can bring about its own conditions to be on the lookout for. From wet leaves, to fog and sun glare, to deer season.

Hazards of Fall Driving:

• Rain & wet leaves can decrease traction for your vehicle, indicating a need to increase stopping distance.

• Fog & sun glare decrease visibility. Ensure you increase following distance, check mirrors, and slow down.

• In the fall there is an increase in deer activity and they primarily eat between sunset and sunrise. Make sure you slow down and use caution, especially in areas where deer crossing signs are posted. You should also increase following distance between vehicles to allow yourselves opportunity to take evasive action if necessary.

• School Children: While schools are already back in full swing, with daylight savings time approaching, kids can sometimes be more difficult to see in early morning hours.
