Tackle Autumn Driving Challenges Safely

Personal LinesShorter days, longer nights, fallen leaves and wet roads; Autumn is well under way which means temperatures are going to drop and cause more challenging driving conditions. There is no stopping Mother Nature and bad weather, that’s why every responsible driver should be prepared for autumn driving. We’ve come up with a list of things you should be aware of when you’re on the road this fall.

  • Watch out for pedestrians such as children walking to school or waiting for the bus
  • Fallen, wet leaves can cause the road to be slippery roads and cover pot holes
  • Check your tire pressure regularly as the change in temperature can cause tires to expand and contract, resulting in loss of air pressure
  • Scrape your car windows to remove frost and provide a clear view of the road
  • Make sure your windshield wipers are working properly before as autumn can be a rainy time of the year
  • Pay attention to deer crossing signs and slow down on turns and in forested areas as it is migrating season

Be alert of changing driving conditions as the seasons change and the weather fluctuates. If you are in an accident, the damages may be covered through your automobile insurance. To learn more, contact a trusted AssuredPartners NL agent at (888) 702-0901.
