Autumn is just around the corner, as a driver you have to watch out for it!

The dark season begins with autumn. But not only does it get light later and dark earlier, the weather conditions with rain and storm also increase. And if you are on the road as a driver during this time, you have to be prepared for it. So you have to check various points on your car so that you can also do this in autumn is safe on the road.

The wiper blades and their condition!

While in summer - apart from the current year - Has hardly any use for the wiper blades on the car, things look very different in autumn. Here you need the windshield wipers regularly and therefore also those Wiper blades. So that they can do their job, they should be used regularly check and clean. Especially if you don't use them for a long time, dirt can easily accumulate. If the wiper blades were not cleaned, they would not provide a fresh view when in use, but would make the window more dirty. The cleaning of the wiper blades is easy, simply by means of a damp cloth and a brush is possible.

If you have particularly hard dirt that cannot be easily removed with water, you can work with a little diluted antifreeze. In connection with cleaning, you should directly check the condition of the wiper blades. If you notice cracks or if the material is brittle, you should replace it. If the wiper blade only streaks, but is still in good condition and not porous, then reprocessing can help. How it works, we have in the article "ECOCUT pro - wiping the windscreen wiper in the test" summarized.

So that you always have energy!

When the temperatures go down and it's getting colder and colder, that's with great demands on them car battery tied together. It can then easily be the case that the car no longer starts or the performance limited is. Heating up the seats or switching on the windshield wipers can become a problem. To prevent this from happening, you should check the car battery. Here it is important to check the chambers of the battery whether they have sufficient fill level. If the car does not start, you can use one in an emergency Starter cable Remedial action to be taken. However, if this happens frequently, we recommend replacing the car battery. How to check the battery, we have that in our article "Useful information on the subject of "car batteries"!“Listed. And how to give start-up help can be found in the article "Give jump-start: this is how the car battery is bridged!“Read.

Adapt driving behavior to the weather!

The weather can be extremely different, especially in autumn. Rain but also frost can alternate as well as storm and sometimes even snow. And for one slippery road surface can not only provide rain and frost in autumn, but also the leaves from the trees. These weather influences can have a strong effect on driving behavior, so you not only have to be more attentive, but also your own Adjust speed. And so it doesn't turn out to be one in autumn, for example Storm damage comes to the car, you should not park directly under a tree.

Drive with light!

Later light, earlier dark, that is typical for this time of the year. The light is especially important in the season, so you should check your lighting system. If you have discovered damage, it is not only dangerous for road safety, but also constitutes one Administrative offence If you are stopped by the police, you have to be punished with 25 Euros calculate.

Here you should also do that dimmed headlights, the Fog Lights and ultimately the Rear fog lights check.

If the visibility is less than 50 meters, for example, you can Rear fog lights turn on. In addition, the maximum speed of 50 km / h also applies in such a case. You should know this and more as a driver if you want to be safe on the road in autumn. More information about legal issues in road traffic can be found in our overview for Bußgeldkatalog.

Always keep an eye on the road!

Depending on the road, there can also be specific dangers, such as a lot of soil from a farmer on a country road. In combination with rain, this can turn into a sledding party. And finally, you should deal with the topic within the next few days winter tires employ.
