Be wary of these dangers when driving this fall season

The fall season is a great time of year throughout Maryland. The temperatures are still reasonable, the sun is still strong and the leaves are changing. There's still so much to do in Maryland during the fall season. Many people will still visit the state during the fall, which means there will be added vehicles on the roads. Here are some other dangers to be wary of this fall season.


Even though the leaves are so beautiful to look at, they can also be dangerous. When the leaves start to fall, they can become a hazard to all types of vehicles. Leaves can hide other hazards on the roads, including debris and potholes. When they become wet, they can cause your tires to lose traction with the road. Driving on wet leaves can send you skidding out of control.

Another common hazard in the fall season is fog. Fog is more prevalent along the East Coast in the fall because of the cold mornings. You should never activate your high beams when driving in fog. It will only make it more difficult to see through it. Keep your low beams on and drive slowly.

Sun glare is a hazard in the fall because of how low the sun sits in the sky. You should always have sunglasses with you and pull off the side of the road if you are having trouble seeing what is in front of you.

Driving is a dangerous activity to begin with but when you add in these hazards, it can become tragic. If you are involved in a car accident in Montgomery, visit our site to learn about your rights and how you can receive compensation for the injuries suffered.
