When leaves accumulate on the roadway and become wet, they’re extremely slippery. It’s a lot like driving on ice. When wet leaves freeze, it’s icy for real. Traction is reduced. Your car could skid. You could lose control of the vehicle. Leaves also can cover painted road markings, making it difficult to know where the proper lanes are.
Slow down if you’re driving on a road covered with leaves, especially on turns.
And that’s smart safety!
