Buffalo Fall Driving Tips

by William Mattar | September 23rd, 2019

There are plenty of resources available with advice on how to drive in a Buffalo winter, but the fall in Buffalo can be just as treacherous for drivers. Fall in Buffalo means school is starting, lots of rain, and leaves covering the ground with a potential to become slip and fall hazards. If you are going to drive in Buffalo during the fall, then you should consider some tips on how to avoid accidents.

Alter Your Driving Times

All summer long you got used to your daily route on Buffalo roads to get to work or wherever else you might be going. When fall hits, schools open in Buffalo and that means school buses may be blocking roads and possibly kids walking in the streets. You should be aware of this.

Get Your Brakes and Tires Checked

It is important to make sure that your vehicle is in top condition before you try to drive upon wet and slippery Buffalo roads. You should get your car to your mechanic to have your brakes, windshield wipers, and tires all checked. You should also be sure that you can always see where you are going in the fall, and you will want to have as much control over your vehicle as possible.

Respect Wet Leaves

On the roads of Buffalo, wet leaves should be considered potentially dangerous. When the leaves start falling, the roads may get covered and even dry leaves can make roads slippery. When you drive on wet leaves, be careful.

Remember it Gets Dark Earlier

Some people might find that driving in daylight is safer than driving at night. When fall comes to Buffalo, the days get shorter and the nights get longer. If you are used to driving to and from work in the daylight but fall changes that on you, then you may want to consider joining a car pool or getting a bus pass for safety.
