November Travel Hazards Cited By State Officials

November 7, 2017

Not only does November bring with it shorter days, there are other travel hazards most commonly associated with this month.

The time changes brought about by the end of Daylight Saving Time mean earlier nightfall and low-sky sun glare in the late afternoon.  As a driver, you may still be getting accustomed to the slight sleep changes, and may be feeling drowsy at an earlier time.  Wet leaves can also create driving hazards.

And, November is often the most deadly time of the year in terms of vehicle/deer crashes.  Dusk and dawn are the most common times to encounter deer on the highway, and officials say if you see one deer on the road, it is likely there are more in the area.

Last year, PennDOT reported more than 4,100 deer-related motor vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania, resulting in four deaths and 573 injuries.

By the way, Pennsylvania Insurance Department spokesman Ron Ruman tells Radio PA News that, under state law, motorists in this state cannot be charged extra for auto insurance for that type of crash
