The fall is a beautiful season, but that beauty masquerades the inherent dangers of fall driving.
The fall is a beautiful season that brings a change in the weather, a fantastic change in the color of leaves, and comfortable sweaters. While fall may be pretty to look at, there are dangers that lurk on the streets beneath the yellow and red leaves. Kids going back to school, rain, and dead leaves all create threats to all motorists. Here are the dangers of fall driving and what you can do to avoid any traffic accidents.
Kids Going Back to School
Fall means that kids are going back to school, which means that there will be more cars and school buses on the road and an increase in traffic. Drivers should also be careful near crosswalks as children walk to and from school every weekday.
If you've ever mixed oil and water, you'll have noticed that the two liquids do not mix and will separate with water on the bottom and oil on the top. When it rains and the roads become wet, the oil and water separate, creating a thin layer of oil sitting on top of the wet road which makes the roads slippery. Make sure to have enough space between you and the car in front of you.
As the days shorten, photosynthesis for most green vegetation stops. For trees, it means the shedding of their leaves. Some of those leaves fall on the street and can cover traffic lines and potholes, so be careful and drive slow to avoid any accidents.
