The "shoulder seasons" are fairly short here in Colorado. While autumn can be some of the most beautiful times, it is also one of the most dangerous for drivers venturing out on our highways.
Speaking with our friends at Apex Auto Body, they said that hail season creates a lot of body work for cars, but fall is one of the busiest for accidents. The way the sun is low on the eastern horizon right at the peak morning drive times causes more accidents than winter weather.
Grab you sunglasses, stow the smartphone and flip down the visor. That flappy thing with the mirror above your head is actually pretty darn good at blocking the sun! A little awareness can go a long way to safety.
