car bodywork repairs near StokenchurchAutumn has arrived and as if on cue the weather has changed too. The wind, rain and that chill in the air mean it’s high time we, at Auto Medics – the popular choice for car bodywork repairs near Stokenchurch – revisit autumn road safety tips.

Car Bodywork Repairs near Stokenchurch

Beware of Seasonal Hazards:

As the days become shorter and the weather more miserable, we need to consider our driving habits to keep ourselves, other drivers, pedestrians and animals safe. Roads are more crowded since schools have returned from summer holidays and COVID-19 lockdown. Look out for children walking home from school, often in dark clothing. Leaves are falling from trees, wet from the rain causing skid hazards. There’s an abundance of roadworks taking place, so pay close attention to traffic signs as the darker evenings arrive, alerting you that these are up ahead. As temperatures drop significantly and icy mornings arrive, give yourself more time in the mornings to de-ice your car and make your journey steadily without rushing.

Watch out for Animals:

As evenings draw in and animals are on the move earlier stay alert, particularly when driving near woodland areas. Deer, foxes and other animals can dart out to cross roads, so ensure your headlights are on, main beam if you’re the only car around and take extra care

Avoid Flat Tyres:

As temperatures drop overnight, molecules in the air start moving slower, leaving less space between them, which can cause tyre pressure to drop. Be sure to check your tyre pressures regularly and if you need to top up do it first thing out in the evening for best results.

Be Prepared to be Dazzled by the Sun:

The sun is lower in the sky which hinders visibility. Remember your sunglasses, keep your windscreen clean and drive with caution as other drivers and pedestrians will struggle with the sun in their eyes too.
