Did you know about six million car accidents are happening every year in the U.S alone? Before you start driving, you should take a driving course and pass the driving exam, and then you are eligible to drive legally.
The purpose of this course is to educate drivers with basic driving and safety skills. They should know how to fasten seat belts, adjust the side mirrors, use signals, and understand signboards.
Here are some tips for a safe driving experience:
- Never get distracted: The reason for such a high number of accidents is distracted driving. You will be distracted off the road if you are talking on their cell phones, texting while driving, or eating. Always set your map and schedule your playlist before you start driving your car. You can also put your phone on “do not disturb,” which will prevent the phone from ringing when you’re driving. Remember to always park your car before taking a call. The person on the other side of the call can wait but your safety is first.
- Keep your headlights clean: If you are a night driver, it could be hazardous to drive not too bright headlight. Over time, your headlight cover will get foggy, due to which the amount of light that can pass through becomes less and less. If you notice your headlights are foggy, inform our washing specialist when you bring in your car for a wash.
- Are your tires properly inflated: having properly inflated tires will increase your gas mileage. It will also give you optimal traction and long life of the tire. This also ensures your tire does not blow out while you are on the road.
- Always check your engine fluid levels: Your radiator should sure have enough coolant to prevent it from overheating. If you have a habit of driving around during summers, keep a check on the fluid levels yourself. That is because if you damage the gauge, it can lead to damaging the radiator. You should also keep a regular check on your engine oil. Not changing the oil can lead to sludge build-up inside the engine, which can cause damage and overheating issues. Repairing these mechanical issues can be expensive. If your car is old, change the oil every 3,000 miles and if your car is new, change the oil every 6,000 miles.
- Ensure the windows and windshield are clean: Your visibility on the road can be hindered if there is dust, pollen, and leaves on your windshield. Whereas keeping them clean will help you keep an eye on the road and any potential hazards.
Remember that a clean car does not only look good but also is a safe one to drive. Imagine your car with shinning windows and a windshield, and a sparkling headlight. You are ready for your journey. If you are looking for an excellent wash for your car, visit Cadillac Express Car Wash now.
