Firstly, the hours of daylight are less, darker mornings and evenings so remember to switch on headlights - dipped or full depending on circumstances.
Secondly, schools are back in full swing so allow extra time for journeys, avoid areas around schools is possible, watch for pupils waiting for and alighting from cars and buses.
Thirdly, the leaves on the trees are turning lovely yellow, red and brown colour - however, when fallen on roads especially when wet, they are slippery and can lengthen stopping distances.
Finally, weather can be changeable varying from low morning and evening sun which can be blinding, to foggy, damp conditions to the first frosts of winter.
