Although these tips may seem overly cautious to some, taking preventative action could be the deciding factor between life and death. Make sure to perform routine maintenance on your car. The following are some vehicle safety tips:
· Check your car mirrors
· Check your seat belts
· Check your tires at least once a month for proper inflation. Under-inflated tires can affect the handling and fuel mileage of your car to a drastic level. Don’t forget to check the spare tire too!
· Check your windshield wiper blades monthly. Worn out wiper blades can impact visibility and create a glare on the windshield, even when not in use.
· Don’t text and drive.
· Be cautious of using your GPS. Be sure to be aware of your surroundings and not just focusing in on the GPS.
