Autumn brings with it changing leaves, shorter days and falling temperatures. And wet leaves, fog, frost, sun glare and increased deer activity all make driving more treacherous.

Wet leaves can obscure traffic lines and other pavement markings. And they’re slippery, as is frost — so when the temperature drops, watch for icy spots. At this time of year, sunrise is later and sunset is earlier, so sun glare may interfere with morning or afternoon commutes.

Follow these safe driving tips:

  • Increase your following distance, especially in bad weather.
  • Inspect tires for ample tread and inflation.
  • Check that headlights and taillights are working properly.
  • Make sure wiper blades are in good condition.
  • Slow down and use caution, particularly near deer crossing signs.
  • Keep sunglasses handy and visors clear of clutter.
  • Always wear your seatbelt and make sure any passengers do, too.
  • Never drive impaired.

When there is rain or fog, remember: Wipers on — headlights on. It’s the law!
