The weather is getting cooler, and the leaves are turning beautiful hues of reds, oranges, and browns, it makes is an absolutely perfect time to get behind the wheel and enjoy all the beauty South Australia has to offer. Here are a couple of helpful tips to keep in mind in order to stay safe on the roads this Autumn.
Although the rain hasn’t quite hit us yet, when it does rain the road conditions will change, and fast. All of those beautiful leaves we see fall start to build up on roads, paths and driveways, and while they make a lovely crunching sounds when they are crisp and dry as soon as we have any sort of rain they become incredibly slippery, reducing traction and control not only while slowing down and braking, but also when accelerating, making it harder to remove yourself from harm’s way.
With Autumn we also say goodbye to daylight savings, resulting in shorter days and the increased likelihood of driving home in the dark. Although most of us are quite comfortable with driving in the dark we still have to deal with rush hour in the early evening hours, not to mention that early Autumn is still an incredibly popular time for cyclists to be using the roads to commute to and from work.
While daylight savings doesn’t end until April 2nd this year, now is a great time to change your wiper blades, check tyre pressure and ensure your car is ready for the change of weather before it arrives.
