Prepare yourself for safe driving in Ohio this coming autumn

Do not let the warm weather fool you. Autumn will be here before you know it and will bring its unique set of car accident risks to Ohio motorists. After the lazy days of summer have come to an end, the volume of car accidents may rise in some locations. Begin reminding yourself now about what you may encounter as you take to the streets and go about your business.

Most people enjoy autumn. The chilly weather, the beautiful foliage and the sense of the approaching holiday season often evoke a sense of well-being. Some people also enjoy driving during this time to take in the beautiful Ohio vistas before winter arrives. In order to make your excursions as safe as possible, here are a few road dangers that may not exist during the other three seasons.

-- Back-to-school means increased traffic: In addition to more cars and school buses appearing on the roads, more pedestrians will also be present. Make sure to watch for kids walking to school and back during the fall.

-- Unexpected frost: As the temperatures begin to drop, frost often makes its first appearance in autumn. Beware of icy road conditions, especially on bridges and shady areas.

-- Falling fall foliage: The leaves will change to their beautiful hues, but they will also begin to fall and litter the roadways. Watch out for potholes hidden under leaves and remember that wet leaves can be quite slippery.

-- The presence of deer: During the autumn season, deer can be very active as it is their time to mate and to migrate. Be sure to stay on the lookout for deer, especially when you drive at night.

Regardless of the season, avoiding car accidents is everyone's most important driving goal. If an accident is unavoidable and was caused by another party, remember that a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you seek and win compensation for any injuries.
