When you drive this winter, you want to make sure your vehicle is in the best condition possible. As roads become covered in snow and ice, it is important to drive with caution. This way you can have a pleasant driving experience with helping to reduce the chance of an emergency situation. Whenever you notice anything out of the norm with your vehicle, make sure to contact us. This can help prevent further damage and wear and tear.
As you drive, make sure to go at the posted speed limit on the road. Doing so can help improve the fuel efficiency for your vehicle. Driving at the speed limit can also help with the condition of the tires. Tires may begin to wear unevenly, which will result in them needing to be replaced sooner than necessary. By driving at the speed limit recommended, you will help to get to your destination as safely as possible. It will also have increased safety for you and your passengers. If you ever notice anything out of the norm, make sure to bring your vehicle in and we can inspect it for issues with parts and components.
No matter what type of roads you drive on, make sure to travel with caution. There should be ample space between you and the vehicle in front of you to help prevent an accident as you drive. The rule of thumb while driving is to use the three-second rule. By using this, you can help maintain a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. To make sure you are three seconds away from the vehicle, find a stationary object on the side of the road. When the vehicle in front of you passes it, start counting in seconds. By the time you pass it, at least three seconds should have passed. If there is inclement weather you are driving in, or if you are driving at night, it is recommended you maintain six seconds or more. This can help you and your passengers to be safe while driving.
