Fall Driving Tips : Leaves on Roadways

Beauty becomes a beast: The danger of wet leaves

The colorful fall leaves on the trees are beautiful – as long as they are on the trees. Wet leaves covering a curve on a road… not so pretty. Once the leaves start falling, especially due to rain, they can become a serious driving hazard. Wet leaves can be slippery, reduce traction and also cover road markings, making it difficult to determine shoulder and lane widths. When travelling on a road that is covered in wet leaves, increase the distance between your car and the car in front of you and allow additional stopping time. Allowing for more time for your trip is never a bad idea either, as you’ll be less inclined to rush.

Happy Motoring
