“Fall Driving” Tips

• STEER CLEAR OF WET LEAVES - Wet leaves are
slippery and reduce traction. Treat wet leaves the same way
as you would for icy road surfaces.
• MAKE ADJUSTMENTS FOR THE LIGHT – A shorter days
means less light and makes it more difficult to see
pedestrians, cyclists, and children playing in the late
afternoon.
• WATCH FOR FROST - Keep a windshield scraper and
small broom in your car to keep windows clean. Frost
covered roads and sidewalks are very slippery. Always
adjust your driving to road conditions.
• PLAN AHEAD FOR HARSHER WEATHER - Have your
car winterized before the winter storm season sets in.
Keeping your car in good condition decreases your chance
of being stranded in cold weather.
Buckle Up - Drive Safe - Arrive Alive
