Tire pressure can drop by one psi (pounds per square inch) for each 10°F drop in temperature.
Driving in the dark affects your depth perception and color recognition.
The glare of oncoming headlights can make it more difficult to see the road in front of you.
Fog lights will help you see road markings better. Using high beams will reflect the light back at you, causing reduced visibility.
Deer are more active at dusk and dawn.
Deer also travel in groups (herds). If you see one, you are likely to see more.
You are 3.5 times more likely to hit a deer in November than any other month.
