Safe driving starts with a safe vehicle. Before you leave for your spring break road trip, here are 3 things that you can do before pulling out of your driveway:
– Clean your windshield and your headlights. Make sure that your wiper blades are not worn, and if they are, replace them. Always make sure that the reservoir is filled with windshield wiper fluid.
– Check pressure on all four tires and the spare. Recommended pressures will be printed in the vehicle’s handbook, or on a sticker in the door jamb. Also, make sure the tires have sufficient tread for safe travel.
– Check all of your engine’s fluids to make sure that they are full. If you don’t know where all of the fluid bottles are stored, your owner’s manual can help you locate them.
Going out of town, or even out of country, for a spring break vacation can clear your mind for a short while. A vehicle that’s been properly maintained will help you come back home safely.With a little car care, you can relax and enjoy a stress-free spring break road trip.
