Fall in Beaverton and the Portland region can be a beautiful time of year, full of vibrant autumn leaves and crisp temperatures. It’s also a season for taking safety seriously when you’re out on Oregon roads. Following these fall safety tips behind the wheel will help you enjoy a safe and stress-free fall.
Keep watch for kids
With children back in class, make sure you stay extra alert and cautious near school buses, school zones, and anywhere else you might encounter kids while driving.
Look out for deer
Thanks to hunting season and the changing weather, deer are especially active in Oregon this time of year. Drive carefully and keep watch in wooded areas so you don’t hit one that’s crossing the road.
Be aware of fall changes
In fall, the weather gets wetter, the sun sets earlier, and fallen leaves can make for slippery driving. Staying aware and maintaining good driving habits as you travel will help you safely navigate these changes.
Get a tune-up
Fall is a great time to get your vehicle tuned up. Purchase new windshield wipers, have your brakes and headlights checked, and make sure your tires are properly inflated and in good condition.
