AAA in the News
Many drivers experience problems on the road during the winter season. The snowy, slushy conditions can cause accidents or mechanical issues. Roadside assistance can quickly become expensive, and no driver wants to be stranded in the cold.
The AAA advantage Proper upkeep of vehicles during the grueling winter months is important for motorists.The American Automobile Association predicted it would need to retrieve 104,000 sets of keys locked inside vehicles, answer 194,000 requests for help with a dead battery and change over 95,000 tires during the year end holiday season. A promotion code for AAA services could help drivers stay safe on the snowy roadways.
Winter driving safety tips Winter driving can be intimidating, but with the proper preparations, motorists can remain stress-free in hazardous conditions.Drivers should purchase a no-freeze fluid to prevent ice from forming on the windshield and check batteries, tire treads and windshield wipers before their next road trip. Conditions during the winter months can make trips longer than expected, and rushed drivers may make irresponsible or unsafe decisions. In order to alleviate this stress, drivers should drive in the daylight as much as possible and become familiar with the route and expected weather conditions.
Motorists should avoid sharp maneuvers because steady and smooth driving will help them maintain control on slippery roads.
Tires should be kept in prime condition and be fully inflated. Since cold temperatures can reduce tire pressure, drivers should check the pressure frequently and make sure it is at least at the level that the manufacturer recommends.
Car maintenance is not something that can be taken lightly, especially during the winter months. Motorists need to keep safety in mind for themselves and others during the snowy season.
