Here's this week's fall driving tip: Check your vehicle's headlights, taillights and turn signals to ensure they are working properly, since darkness will be part of many drivers' morning and evening commutes. (and, from personal experience — if you drive to work in the morning when it is still dark, be sure to turn your lights off when you arrive or you'll have a dead battery).
