With every season comes possible driving hazards. For us in the New England area, I’m sure icy snowy conditions come to mind. But have you ever considered the danger of fallen leaves? More particularly, wet leaves? Living in Connecticut, drivers may be zipping around before winter rolls in. We all love our football games, fairs, and firepits; but we may need to slow down getting there.
As a high school student, there was one teacher every year that would lecture us new drivers about the dangers of wet leaves. That may seem silly but wet leaves can be just as dangerous as hitting a patch of ice. So next time there are wet leaves covering the roadway, slow down.
