Tips for Driving in the Fall

Each season comes with its own challenges for drivers. Whether it's the snow and sleet in the winter, the bright heat of the summer, the rain and pollen of the spring, or the special challenges unique to fall, it's important that you know how to properly drive and care for your car during each season.


The fall is a season full of lovely, crisp weather and fresh starts, but it can also bring special driving challenges. Here, those of us at McCarthy Hyundai Blue Springs have put together a short list of tips for driving the fall that will help you stay safe and keep your vehicle in great condition during the autumn months.


·         Be careful of falling and fallen leaves. As the leaves change and fall off the trees, they can become hazards. When fallen leaves are wet, they can become slippery and dangerous. Be careful in fall rainstorms.

·         Be mindful of your tire pressure. The pressure in your tires can change based on the weather, particularly as it gets colder. Be sure you are checking your tires' pressure levels regularly to make sure that they are inflated to the right level of psi.

·         Remember that daylight saving time will end. Soon, it will begin getting darker earlier, which can make evening driving more hazardous. Be sure your headlights are in proper working order and be a cautious driver whenever you're on the road.

·         Watch out for rainfall. Sometimes, fall can bring more rainfall than you're used to. If this is the case, be mindful of driving tips for wet conditions. Avoid speeding and make sure that your windshield wipers are in proper working order.


Driving in the fall can be fun! We hope you enjoy the cool weather and the changing scenery, but we also hope you stay safe and keep your vehicle running smoothly as the weather transitions from hot to cold. The staff at McCarthy Hyundai Blue Springs is always committed to your safety.
