With the return of fall weather this week, here are some safety tips to take with you on the road:
Check your tire pressure: Tires lose 1 to 2 pounds of pressure for every 10-degree temperature drop.
Stay alert in the rain: Maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you, as the wet roads may be more slippery than usual and you may be at higher risk of hydroplaning.
Watch the leaves: Wet leaves can be as slippery as ice! 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.
Adjust your eyes: We lose 1 to 2 minutes of daylight daily after the autumnal equinox. Give your eyes time to adjust to the dark!
