As winter arrives, make safety a top priority
The arrival of fall/winter means that our daylight time has diminished. When leaving work at the end of the day don't just hop in your vehicle and take off without allowing time for your eyes to adjust. When coming from a well lit office to the reduced light of early evening allow time for your eyes to adjust before beginning the drive home.
