Three Don’ts When Driving During The Fall
The fall can be a glorious time in our state. This year AAA indicates that nearly 80% of all vacations that are being taken during the fall will be road trips. That’s a lot of people on the roads during one of the most beautiful times to sight see.
If you are one of those people who will be out on the roads this fall, there are a few things you should note so you can avoid a Connecticut auto accident. These don’ts are specific to the fall months, but one main thing they boil down to is being careful, which translates during every driving season.
Going on a road trip can be fun and when you take into account these few fall don’ts you’ll arrive home safely.
- Don’t speed up when driving over a pile of leaves. It may be tempting to race through a beautiful pile of colorful leaves, but small children like to play in these piles and racing through them without caution could wind up causing an injury or worse.
- Don’t drive through piles of leaves at all. While we’re talking piles of leaves, leaves hide road conditions that may cause an accident and leave your car damaged or you injured. If you can, avoid leaves all together.
- Don’t leave your tire under-inflated. Long road trips can be wonderful, but if you’re driving on an under-inflated tire you could be in for some trouble.
Your road trip should be fun, not dangerous. Being knowledgeable about these various ways that accidents can occur that are exclusive to the fall months can be a matter of saving your life and making the difference in how you remember your road trip.
