Roadside Chat - Pass: Food to the right, cars on the left

11-24 pass food to the rightWe’re in the midst of a busy holiday travel season. It is a wonderful time to share meals with loved ones. Often that means sharing the road to get to and from those festive gatherings.

To be as safe as possible, it’s important that we all share a common understanding of basic driving rules. Driver’s education for our kids is great, but for some of us, it’s been a few years since we’ve had that kind of instruction.

11-10 watch for deerIt’s that time of year again. Harvest is wrapping up, unsettling deer out of the relative safety of the farm fields and into more open areas. On top of being disrupted from the fields, it’s mating season, which means more deer are on the move for the annual rut. According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, you may be distracted by the first deer crossing a road not seeing the buck pursuing the first deer. This time of year, you should be on the lookout for multiple scenarios of fast-moving, unpredictable deer crossing highways.

11-3 tires and tiredIt’s time to “fall back” this weekend with Daylight Savings Time ending at 2 a.m. on Nov. 5. Even though the fall time change can mean an extra hour of sleep, the change often means interrupted sleep patterns for many, which can equal danger while driving.

Take an honest look at your sleep habits, not just during time changes, but every day. Do you get enough rest to be safe behind the wheel?
