If it is raining, sleeting, snowing, or even windy, you will want to have the headlights on. You will improve the visibility as you drive, as well as helping others to see where you are at on the road. Without the lights on, you will increase the chance of an accident occurring. If other drivers cannot see you, then they might rear end or crash into you. read more

With school starting, now is a great time to have your vehicle properly inspected. If parts are starting to show signs of wear and tear, make sure to have them replaced as soon as possible.

The tires should be inspected regularly. Since the tires are the only part that will make direct contact with the surface of the road, it is important to have them inspected. The proper inflation will help the tires to rotate and wear evenly. If you notice that the air pressure is low on a regular basis, there could be a leak on the tire. If a tire is over inflated it has a great chance to pick up sharp objects on the road. When a tire is under inflated, it may be more prone to blowing out. It is important to remember to check the spare tire along with the regular ones as well. This way it will be ready to use incase you need it. read more
