Summers in the Pacific Northwest never last very long, and before you got a chance to ride on the Burke Gilman Bike Trail or soak up some sun at Green Lake Beach one last time, fall was here. Green landscape has given way to deep yellows, reds, and oranges, and leaves are beginning to fall all over the sidewalks and streets. Although the fall changes make the views on the way to your destinations more picturesque, they can also create dangers.

Make Your Trip Safer

Fall brings a variety of dangers to the roadway, including slick leaves and wildlife, and unless you are prepared to meet them, you could end up in a serious accident. Here, we discuss a few tips that could keep you out of a collision:

  • Maintain your vehicle. Motorists often fail to realize that their automobiles need extra attention in the fall months. Since tires expand and contract due to changing temperatures, so can their pressure. Check your tire pressure often to ensure your wheels are adequately inflated. Additionally, working windshield wipers are crucial to navigating through the roads in autumn, so change them at the start of the season. Checking the fluids in your vehicle is also a must.
  • Slow down. Since you never know when you are going to come across a slippery pile of leaves or a fawn running across the road in search of her mother, speeding just doesn’t make sense. Instead, slow down and pay attention to what is around you, as doing so could prevent a crash.
  • Shine bright. Since daylight hours are shortened, you’ll need to make sure other drivers can clearly see you. Don’t forget to use your headlights, and change any dim bulbs.
