Distracted Riding Safety Tips for Fall
Tip 1: Be Aware of Others
It is important to pay attention to how other drivers are reacting to the fall foliage to know if they are distracted while driving. Pay attention to whether their vehicles are swerving or not. You should also watch if their speed changes while driving; if they are randomly stopping and speeding up while driving this can indicate they aren’t paying attention to the roads.
Tip 2: Ride Carefully
Not only do you need to pay attention to other drivers this fall but be sure not to get distracted yourself while riding through the beautiful fall foliage. You should also be sure to leave extra stopping room between you and others who are driving just in case.
Tip 3: Plan Ahead
If you do want to take the time to go driving through the beautiful fall foliage this year, you should plan ahead and go during the week when the roads are likely to be less busy. If you decide to go in your car rather than your motorcycle, you could bring a passenger with you while driving to increase awareness and safety.
