Holiday Traveling Tips

If you or your family are planning to go “over the river and through the woods” this holiday season, you should have your car professionally checked first.

Millions of people take to the highway to visit family and friends over the holidays. If you are planning a trip here are a few tips to remember.

  • Well before the trip have a Courtesy Inspection performed by a trained technician. Break downs a long way from home can ruin even the best of holiday spirits. A trained technician can often spot potential trouble before it happens.
  • Take plenty of breaks along the way and don’t drive when tired.
  • If you are traveling with children, remember to provide them with snacks and games to keep them busy. Maybe leave in the middle of the night so they sleep through the major part of the trip. Keep a sense of humor and take deep breaths when needed.
  • Plan out your route ahead of time. Allow extra time for weather and unexpected traffic tie-ups.

The Long’s Car Care Family wishes you and yours a safe holiday season!

Tire Safety

While your brakes stop the wheels it is your TIRES that stop the Car. So with the weather turning nasty now is a great time to ensure your tires are up to the task. The easiest way to know what shape your tires are in is to have them inspected by your trusted mechanic. He can also correct the air pressure as needed during his inspection. For the “do-it-yourselfers”, tires are considered unsafe when they have less than 2/32” of tread remaining. Most tires have “Wear Bars” in the deepest part of the tread that is raised 2/32”.

When the tire is worn to the wear bar it is time to replace. Personally I think that tires even close to that measurement should be replaced before heading into winter! A tire gauge is another must have for you do-it-yourselfers. Low tire pressure is the number one cause of premature tire wear and can lead to unsafe  handling, even to the point of an accident. Worn tires are more likely to hydroplane in wet weather and offer little traction in snow and ice.

Drive safely, from the Long’s Car Care Family

Can you see (and be seen?)

Your vehicle’s lights and wiper blades are vital safety features. Headlights out reduce your ability to see (and be seen). Driving at night, especially on wet rural roads really strains your headlights ability to allow you to see safely. Worn out wiper blades blur your ability to see what’s going on around you. Also tail and brake lights let those behind you know what you are planning (or already doing). In addition your vehicle has “Marker” lights usually on all 4 corners making you visible from the sides. These are important when trying to merge into traffic from a side or cross street. Let our team inspect your vehicle to ensure these components are in proper working order for the coming months.

Safe driving from Long’s Car Care Family.
