Car Care Tips- Action Movie Mythbuster!

Miller writes: I have a bet with my Wife on this: In TV shows, you often see cars rolling over and bursting into flames. Does that really happen? It could cost me a month of doing dishes if they don’t!

Mike: Better get some rubber gloves buddy! Car companies put in several safeguards to keep the fuel in the tank on rollovers and not allow it to ignite. From check valves in fuel tank filler necks, to automatic cutoffs on fuel pumps, cars are harder and harder to ignite. Engineers take data from thousands of accidents every year and use that knowledge to make their cars safer. Explosions rarely happen outside of Hollywood.

Here is a tip: Here is one of my biggest pet peeves! Don’t ignore your tires!  It could cost you a tire if you run it low and possibly a lot more if it blows out. Every day I sit in traffic and look at the tires of the vehicle in front of me and I usually see a low tire that the driver is unaware of. I usually try to catch up and tell them, but it doesn’t always work out. Here is what you do: Get a good tire gauge and check the tires once a week, but more importantly, learn how they are supposed to look and when you get in your car each day, give them a quick glance just to make sure you haven’t picked up a nail and have a low tire. If you have a low tire, and can catch it before you drive too far, then a little air will get you to the tire shop. Now that I’ve told you what to do, try it this evening or in the morning when you go out to the car. It’s a good habit to have.

Keep your tires full and looking good!

Driving Safety Tips

How To Stay Safe When Driving in the Rain
– author Michael Murray –

Throughout the year, the roads you travel on may become wet and slick, especially during the months when rain showers are abundant. Rainy conditions not only affect the road, but also influence your vehicle and impair your vision while driving. The best way to increase safety during rainy road conditions is to make sure your vehicle is rain-ready and your on-the-road habits are up to par.

Car Maintenance

To better prepare your car for travel in the rain, you should have your tires checked on a regular basis. Once they show signs of balding, you should have them replaced. The deeper the tread on tires, the more traction you will have to work with. At least once a year, windshield wipers should be replaced, as poor wipers are unable to properly clear the water off of a windshield and also greatly impairs vision. Before driving in rainy weather, make sure the headlights, taillights, brake lights, and turn signal lights are in working condition. It is also suggested to carry along an emergency kit in the car.

Proper Road Preparation

To lessen the chances of suffering complications on the road, you should allow enough time to get to your intended destination. When you are running late, never attempt to make up lost time by driving faster on the road – instead – call ahead to alert affected parties. Sometimes, roads collect with water during rainy weather and you should prepare to use an alternate route in such cases.

Driving on the Road

It is important to follow proper driving habits when traveling in rainy conditions. For example, one of the main rules regarding driving in the rain is to keep to slower speeds because oil deposits and rain combine on a road to make conditions extremely slippery. Also, the slower you drive, the more traction you will enjoy. Additional rain driving tips include:

1) Be cautious when approaching intersections, which are known to collect higher amounts of oil deposits.

2) Leave extra space between yourself and the driver ahead to give more time to stop if wet weather impedes your driving.

3) When driving, use your headlights, which helps you to see better, as well as alerts oncoming drivers to the presence of your vehicle.

4) When slowing down, take your foot off the accelerator or lightly brake. Drivers should also avoid sudden stops.

5) Driving in the center lanes (where the road is highest) helps avoid water pools that gather along the curb and between lanes.

6) When passing trucks, take special caution because trucks often produce large sprays, which make it more difficult to see the road and surrounding vehicles.

7) Avoid standing water because varying depths of water may cover up damaging objects, such as potholes.
