Tips For Fall Driving & Tire Care
BRIGHTON, Mich.- We've experienced a quick taste of the fall temperatures already and it's only a matter of time before the leaves start falling and the rain clouds come rolling in. So, it's time for a quick reminder on some Tips For Fall Driving & Tire Care to keep you safe this season!
Tips For Fall Driving:
- Fallen leaves combined with wet roadways can make for slippery conditions as dangerous as ice so be aware of leaf covered roads.
- When it's especially dry out, as it has been this year, hot mufflers, catalytic converters and exhaust sparks can set leaves on fire, so avoid parking over leaf piles.
- Keep your windshield and wiper blades leaf-free to avoid streaking that will make it impossible to see. And as always when it rains, reduce your speed and avoid standing water.
- Keep your peripheral vision on high alert to be aware of children playing in leaf piles and to spot deer before they enter the roadway.
Tire Care Tips:
-Apply the Quarter Test to make sure your tires have sufficient tread. Put a quarter upside down in the grooves of your tires, the tread should cover George Washington's head.
-Stop by Brighton Ford for a tire rotation or replacement, if needed. We offer Tire Rotation Coupons and Tire Discounts to save you money!
