The northeast is one of the best areas in the nation during the fall season. The amount of festivals that occur and trees that change leaf colors gets many residents excited for October and November every year.

While summer often has a higher motor vehicle accident and fatality count, many individuals in New Hampshire do not prepare themselves for how the colder weather and falling leaves affect their driving. One of the biggest changes in autumn is how more likely it is to get in a drowsy driving accident. Drivers should be aware of how the decreasing sunlight is affecting their ability to stay awake on the road.
