Seniors Take To The Road
The weather may be getting warmer and the days may be longer, but you need to be aware of a few spring driving tips.
With the mild winter we have had this year doesn’t mean that the roads are in great shape; we still need to be careful when travelling on the roads of potholes. Beware of hitting potholes, this can throw your car’s front end out of alignment, damage tires and other steering components.
April showers may bring May flowers, but can be a hazard while driving. Slow down in the rain and leave extra room between you and the car ahead of you while driving and braking.
Excessive speeds or worn tires can cause hydroplaning, which can lead to an accident. Even with good tires, it is better to slow down and be extra cautious in the rain. Have your tires inspected each year, tires rotated every 8,000 miles a wheel alignment each year too. Also, have your wiper blades replaced if they are more than 2 years old.
As always, if something does not feel right with your car, please have it thoroughly checked out by your service professional.
