September 2015 Archives

Fall driving hazards and how to avoid them

Now that September is drawing to a close, you probably have noticed a change in the air; especially during the morning hours. Indeed, fall is now here, and this means that days will be shorter and the humidity associated with summer will no longer be around. Because of the change in conditions, drivers will have to adjust as well. After all, the hazards that drivers may have encountered during the summer are different in the fall.

Two Toyota models honored by the IIHS

In our last post, we noted how dealerships will be clamoring to create space for the newest 2016 models. Because of this, buyers will likely find great discounts on 2015 models that are seemingly just as new. While some automakers will entice buyers with limited discounts on the newest models, others will tout the honors and additions their new offerings bring.

Do drivers need technology to be safe?

In a prior post, we highlighted how the National Transportation Safety Board issued a report exhibiting how advanced safety systems can help prevent many accidents caused by inattention or human error. If federal regulators believe that more than 500,000 accidents could be prevented through crash avoidance systems, you would think that automakers would make it known to consumers.

School is back in session. Drivers should beware.

Now that Labor Day weekend has come and gone in Wisconsin, hundreds of thousands of school age children will be going back to school. Yes, it seems like only yesterday that schools were letting out for summer vacation, but September is here again, and a new school year begins.

Holiday travel safety tips that most people don't think of

Most people know and understand that highway traffic before and after Labor Day weekend can be troublesome. It is essentially a tradition across Wisconsin for families to have one last summer get together before fall begins. This year is poised to be no different with gas prices dropping and more people having income (and time off) to drive to their favorite vacation spot.

Drivers must be aware of pedestrians during this time of year

If you are noticing a difference in the mornings these days, it is probably not the lack of humidity or chill in the air. It is probably not the fact that the sun is coming up later in the mornings. No, it is likely the increase in activity around the city in the mornings. This is because school is back in session, so you may be seeing more cars, buses and pedestrians during rush hour.
