24 Sep Driving Tips for Fall Weather
We welcomed the Fall season on September 22nd, 2018. Fall is a wonderful time of the year to enjoy all the changes it brings us and the community. There is a crisp breeze and the leaves begin to change. Even though this is one of the best times of year there are certain steps needed to be taken in order for your automobile and homes to be in safe conditions.
Before the fall weather arrives, it is best to make sure your car is prepared to handle anything. Most people consider winter to be the most dangerous season for driving, but autumn can be just as threatening. The days are shorter and with wet pavement being covered with layers of leaves, drivers need to be very cautious. The state of your car can make a huge difference in how well it handles different road conditions.
One of the most important things a driver can do to prepare their vehicle is to check tire pressure and the tread of the tire. Headlights and fog lights are essential in fall driving. Clean and bright headlights with no glare can allow the driver to see more clearly and stay alert. Last but not least, it is advised that drivers check their brakes. Some other checklist items are checking fluids and the battery. Batteries are more likely to quit when cooler weather arrives. When conditions are unsafe drivers need to drive with caution and use best judgment. Also, it is advised to have an emergency kit stowed away in your vehicle just in case.
