With the holidays coming up, it seems like road trips are inevitable. Everyone is traveling to spend time with the ones we love, but are you ready to hit the open road this winter? Here are a few tips you should read about holiday driving before heading out the door on your big holiday adventures:
1. Make sure your vehicle is in good working order before you start. Just stop by our friendly service department at Brown Motors and we can inspect your car and ensure that everything from the windshield wipers to the brakes are working properly for your tip.
2. When in doubt, put on your headlights. It’s much better to be the first driver on the road who turns them on, then the last.
3. Clean your car’s headlights, taillights, signal lights, and windows of snow to ensure that all over cars can see you and your signals on the roads.
4. During long road trips, it’s helpful to rotate drivers even for an hour or two. Dad might be surprised how much more alert he feels after turning the reins over to Mom for a stretch.
While these four simple tips may not seem like much, they are certainly crucial when going over the hill on the way to Grandma’s house this holiday season. Be sure to check back with us at Brown Motors for more safe driving tips as the season progresses and stay safe out there!
