Top 10 Car Safety Tips

Top 10 car safety tips to keep your vehicle in good running condition so you and your passengers can be safe. Carjunky.com found this article where you can find these ten safety tips, so read on now.

(NC)—Owning a car is a big responsibility. It requires regular maintenance to ensure your safety. To protect the lives of your passengers, yourself, fellow drivers, pedestrians and wildlife, follow these 10 important tips:

1. Check for UV damage on your headlights. Do-it-yourself products can help. If yellowed or cloudy, try a headlight restoration kit in the popular Quixx line. Top headline maintenance can give you up to four more seconds of reaction time.

A professional sanding may be required for severely damaged lenses.

2. Lighten your load. If you have more than a dozen keys and other knick-knacks hanging from your keychain, it's time to lighten up. The weight can wear down the tumblers in your ignition and could eventually lead to ignition switch failure.

3. “E” does not mean “Enough.” Don't let your car's gas tank get to empty. Not only is it dangerous to drive with low fuel levels, it is also damaging to your car. Sediment from gasoline settles at the bottom of every gas tank. When your gas level is low, you force your car to use the dirtiest gas in its tank for fuel and risk this dirt getting into your car's fuel line and engine.

4. Worn wiper blades are a serious driving hazard. Replace wiper blades every 6 to 12 months, as they become cracked, brittle and worn due to ozone, contaminants, exposure to sunlight and temperature changes.

5. Get more mileage and responsiveness out of your tires. Use the PSI (pounds per square inch) recommendation on the door jam of your car, instead of the one on your tires to keep them properly inflated, especially in extreme weather.

6. Check the battery. Once per year, a car care professional should make sure it is working properly and holding its charge.

7. Check tire tread for wear and use snow tires in the winter.

8. Never, ever text and drive. It's illegal in most provinces – and it's deadly.

9. Keep up with oil changes. The frequency depends on the make and model of your car, so check with your manufacturer.

10. Always wear a seatbelt. And make sure your passengers buckle up, too.

Products are found in stores like Canadian Tire and PartSource and more information on this topic is available online at: www.quixx-usa.com.
