Adapt to Autumn's Road Conditions in Shoreline

Whether you're taking a family road trip or driving to work, road safety is of the utmost importance. As it starts to feel a lot more like fall outdoors, the roads will also start to present changes. Be prepared for these changes and make it to your destination safely with these tips from Ossigner's NW Enterprises in Shoreline.

Give Yourself More Time

Temperature changes and bad weather will likely cause more congestion on the road this season, especially during long holiday weekends. Leave your house earlier and give yourself extra time to make it to your destination on time. Remember that the sun sets earlier in the fall and you could end up doing more driving in the dark. If this is the case, slow down in poorly lit areas in order to avoid road accidents.

Prepare for Slippery Roads

Before heading out the door, take a look at weather conditions. This will help you be prepared for the conditions on the road. As you drive, don't be afraid to slow down if the weather makes it harder to see or be in control of your vehicle. If it's no longer raining but the roads are wet, take it slow. Left over moisture from the rain and freezing temperature can cause hard to see ice to form on the road. Wet leaves and other debris can also cause your vehicle to slip. Your best defense is to slow down and avoid tailgating.

Perform Seasonal Maintenance and Check Your Synthetic Oil in Shoreline

To keep your vehicle running well, seasonal maintenance is a must. As we get deeper into fall it's important that your vehicle is well prepared for the changing weather. Don't put off getting an oil change if it's time for one. Check your tires regularly and keep them at their recommended pressure. Prepare your vehicle for the weather by cleaning your lights and changing your windshield wiper blades. If your vehicle is ready for the season it will be better equipped to keep you safe.

Drive Safely in Rainy Weather in Shoreline

As the rainy season gets closer, it's important that you are prepared for the wet weather. Keep yourself and other motorists safe on the road this rainy season by knowing what to expect and how to handle the wet conditions. Ossigner's NW Enterprises can help you stay safe on the road this wet season.

Slow Down

One of the most important things you can do while driving through a rain storm is slowing down your speed. Decrease your traveling speed by at least 10 miles per hour or until you feel safe and in control of your vehicle. If it's raining very hard and the road is difficult to see, consider pulling over and waiting until conditions are better. Increasing the distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you is another important tip to remember. Wet brakes and wet roads can make stopping a bit more difficult. By increasing the distance between vehicles you can avoid collisions caused by the wet roads.

Check Road Conditions

Before heading out the door, check weather forecasts and road conditions. If the weather is going to be especially bad and dangerous, consider rescheduling your outing. If you absolutely must drive during a storm, check the condition of the roads you plan to use. Try to avoid flooded areas or areas with heavy traffic. Try to find alternate routes to avoid dangerous roads. Driving through large puddles can cause your tires to lose traction and put you in a dangerous situation. Avoid driving fast through standing water since it can cause damage to your vehicle.

Boost Visibility

Being able to see properly will be a huge help while driving through rain. Before the rainy season starts, check your windshield wipers in order to ensure they'll be able to keep your windshield clean. Your headlights, tail lights, brake lights and signals should all be clean and working properly. Always turn on your headlights during a rain storm in order to help you see and to help other drivers see you. Avoid using your high beams in the rain since these can cause a reflection and decreased visibility.
