Back to school time is hectic for many families and for all drivers on the road as children head back to school. Prepare your vehicle for safe rides to school by scheduling a complete vehicle inspection with a trusted mechanic. The inspection should include the following items:
Check lights and wipers for visibility.
Get an annual brake inspection.
Check tires for under inflation or excessive wear.
Make sure everyone is buckled up.
Consider a back-up detection device.
Taking proper care as the season changes and catching up on any maintenance needs after summer driving will give you peace of mind heading into car pool season.
