Beware of Fall Hazards on the Road
Posted on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 at 2:22 pm
Avoiding motor vehicle accidents requires drivers to be vigilant at all times of the year, but each season brings its own set of unexpected risks. Cars, trucks, and motorcycles can all fall prey to the following autumn conditions on the road.
- Sleepy Drivers—when we turn the clocks back an hour, it can really mess with a person’s body clock and make them more tired and less alert. It can take a few weeks to adjust. Fatigued drivers may drift across the middle line in the road or slow down then speed up again suddenly.
- Slippery Conditions—wet leaves, unexpected drops in temperature, and other unpredictable fall weather events can make driving surfaces slick. Conditions may change quickly and catch drivers off guard by being dramatically different from morning to afternoon to evening.
- Too Much on the Mind—when we say distracted drivers, most people think of someone on their cell phone, fiddling with the radio or trying to eat a burger all while driving. As the holidays with all their accompanying planning and complications approach, however, drivers may have too much going on in their heads. Both hands may be on the wheel, but their mind is not on the road.
