In October the days are shorter and it is getting dark earlier which means you have to pay extra attention when you are on the road.
- Be careful when the road is covered in wet leaves, they may cause your car to slip.
- Watch for deer, they are very active between dawn and dusk this time of
- Pay particular care for bicyclists and pedestrians who can be more difficult to see during low light hours.
- Adjust your lights to low beam when driving through fog
- Always wear your seatbelt and do not use electronic devices while driving.
When walking or biking:
- Make sure you have bright/light clothing, reflective gear, a glow stick, or a reflective band.
- Cyclists must have lights on the front and rear of their bike. It’s safer and the law!
- Pedestrians can also carry a flashlight and should always use the sidewalk when available
- If possible walk/bike in groups to be more visible.
Stay safe and enjoy all the beauty of the fall!
