Even with all the technological advances such as antilock brakes, air bags and collision avoidance systems, the number one most important safety feature on your car are the tires. If you want to be safe this fall and winter, check the condition of your tires. Each year we see many auto-related accidents that are due to worn-out tires. And, this becomes increasingly important now that fall is upon us.
Dropping temperatures, wet falling leaves covering our roadways, and slick morning road conditions create a potential driving risk. Without sufficient tire tread depth, your vehicle cannot properly grip the road. Under these conditions your vehicle can hydroplane; where the tires, due to poor traction, actually skim on top of the road, which can lead to loss of control.
The winter will be here before you know it. Now is the best time to have your car, and tires, inspected to insure your car is ready for the road. If you would like more information on car safety this fall or have your tires inspected please call Oscoela Garage or contact us by clicking on this link
