Drive Safely in Fall Weather

As the fall season brings changes in weather conditions, it’s important for OTR truck drivers to be prepared and drive safely. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Watch out for Leaves: Fall foliage may create a picturesque scene, but leaves on the road can make the surface slippery, especially when wet. Be cautious when driving over leaves and avoid sudden braking or sharp turns.

Be Prepared for Fog: Fall mornings can bring foggy conditions, which can reduce visibility on the road. Use your fog lights, reduce your speed, and maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle in front of you.

Check Tire Tread: Wet leaves on the road can affect your tire grip. Make sure your tires have adequate tread depth and are properly inflated to ensure optimal traction and control.

Mind the Wildlife: Fall is also the mating season for many animals, such as deer. Be cautious and watch for wildlife crossing the road, especially during dawn and dusk when they are most active.

Plan for Reduced Daylight: As daylight hours shorten in the fall, be prepared for driving in the dark. Make sure your headlights, taillights, and blinkers are all in good working condition, and adjust your driving habits accordingly.
