 Safe Driving Tips for Fall


Fall Driving Tips

  • School Buses Watch out for school buses and children, especially early morning and the afternoon.  REMEMBER, you can not pass a school bus with its red lights flashing.  Also watch for reduced speed limits in school zones.

  • Fallen Leaves Once leaves become wet they can be as slippery as ice.  Watch for patches of wet leaves on the roadway.  

  • Drowsy Time:  Daylight Savings Time means the clocks are turned back - the one-hour change can have several effects: You may become easily tired until your body adjusts to the time change. You will need to adjust to driving to school or work in the dark. Incidences of drowsiness are much higher during the first week following time changes.

  • Fog Fog is part of the fall season.  Keep your headlights on the low beam - low beam aim the lights at the road, high beams aim the lights up and into the fog.

  • Deer: The risk of deer/vehicle accidents is greatest during the fall - be watchful especially in rural areas. The highest-risk periods are from sunset to midnight, followed by shortly before and after sunrise.
