The Lone Star State is beautiful in the fall, so it’s natural that you’d want to spend a weekend afternoon traveling around seeing the sights. A scenic drive sounds nice and all, but before you set out for your next family adventure — or take the wheel of your work truck for your next job — you’ll want to consider a few safety tips for fall drives around San Antonio, Texas.
Be aware of Daylight Savings Time
On November 1st, the clock rolls back an hour with the end of Daylight Savings Time. Not only will you want to make sure that you turn your clock back on that date so you avoid being late to work or important events, but you’ll want to be aware of how gaining an hour can affect your schedule. You’ll also want to be aware of the effects it has on your day — you’ll have less daylight, so keep that in mind when you’re on a trip or on a job.
Get seasonal maintenance
One of the best ways to be prepared for driving in the fall is to stay on top of your vehicle’s maintenance needs. A full docket of fall service and maintenance would include oil and filter change, tire rotations and pressure check, exterior lights, battery check, wipers and fluids, and more. While you’re at it, take some time to clean out the interior and give your vehicle a good wash and wax.
