“Fall Driving” Tips
Autumn in Ontario is a beautiful time of year, many head out for an afternoon drive to look at the colors. It is still important to pay attention to driving hazards as well. Here are four tips to help keep you safe while out on the roads.
• 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
• 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.
