It’s October and London’s Automotive in Corvallis, OR, wants you to be safe on the roads in this weather-changing season. As the nights get longer, the days shorter and the temperatures drop, you may want to adjust your driving habits to avoid Autumn-related driving hazards, including:
Leaves – can wreak havoc on the roads by covering traffic lines and pavement markings.
Deer – they’re unpredictable and often found on forested roads.
Morning frost, sun glare, fog and other weather conditions that affect your ability to see clearly.
Icy roads – black ice is hard to see so drive slowly in the dark hours to avoid slip sliding away.
Be sure to schedule an appointment with London’s Automotive for your Autumn preventative maintenance check and vehicle winterization.
October also means trick or treaters. Be extra careful and keep an eye out for kids in superhero costumes and other dark-colored costumes. But in some areas of the country, car enthusiasts decorate their vehicles.
