During autumn, the sun is low on the horizon during mornings and evenings, which means you are more likely to be blinded by the sun - and the same goes for other drivers who may react unexpectedly.

What to do to prevent accidents:

Watch out for aquaplaning

During autumn, it rains more often, which can lead to both aquaplaning and flooding on the roads in extreme cases. And the more speed, the greater risk of aquaplaning. Make sure to drive carefully whenever there is water on the roads. It is also important to keep an eye on tire pressure and patterns.

What to do if you experience aquaplaning? You should keep calm, avoid braking, and allow the car to slide through the water until the tires get back on the ground. Try to keep the steering wheel straight and do not speed up.

Have a safe trip and enjoy the beautiful colors of autumn.
