Maintain Your Tires: Tires should be inspected regularly. Look for any signs of damage or wear and fix them as soon as possible. Also be sure to check tire pressure and fill air as needed. Driving on incorrect tire pressure can affect your car’s ability to brake on time, drive in wet conditions and even cause a tire blow-out. A simple maintenance plan will ensure safety.
Maintain Your Car’s Fluid Levels: Checking your car’s fluid levels daily can alert you of any potential car problems. For instance, driving your car without enough engine, transmission, coolant, brake, or power steering fluid can cause your vehicle not to work like it is supposed to. It is recommended you check your fluid levels often.
Maintain Your Child’s Car Seats For Proper Installation: Check your child's carseat to make sure it's safe. If you’re not sure whether or not your child’s car seat would pass the car safety check, check the internet or visit your local fire station. Many have free clinics to help adjust a child's car seat. National retailers such as Evenflo also provide resources for help with car seat maintenance.
