Fall is a beautiful time of the year in the lower mainland. But it can be unpredictable. A bright, sunny day can suddenly turn cold and rainy. In addition to sudden weather changes, here are some other reasons why driving during the month of October requires extra caution:

Slippery leaves
Wet leaves are slippery and can cause your car to start hydroplaning unexpectedly.

Sun glare
The angle of the sun changes in the fall, which can make the early morning and late afternoon glare more intense.

Rain, fog, and frost
Fall weather can limit visibility and make bridges slippery — making driving more challenging for commuters in the lower mainland.

Ghosts, ghouls, and goblins
And of course, October is trick or treat month. Slow down in neighborhoods during Halloween, especially at dusk.
