My 10 Tips For Keeping Families Safe On The Road!

                                                                     
Now that Summer is here~people will be traveling more.As there are just more things to do and see in the warmer weather. And that means more traffic,and it is so important that you remember to keep your family safe in your vehicle.
Thanks to Social Moms and Safelite AutoGlass I have been thinking about 10 tips to keep us safe.

My Top 10 Tips~

1~Make sure that your vehicle is in tip~top shape.As the last thing you want to do is break down in this heat.If you don't have someone to look at it for you~make sure that you make a appointment to have a mechanic or local garage do it. As if it is something simple~it will cost next to nothing.

2~Click~It or Ticket! Make sure that you always wear your seat-belts. So many people have been in accidents without them on and have been seriously injured~or worse..And,not only is it the law but if you get pulled over you will get a fine.Why risk it???

3~Keep your eyes on the road.No matter what~you have to be aware of your surroundings at all times.No looking back at the kids.No looking for that CD that you just have to listen too.Just listen to your kids as I am sure that they can come up with some good stories to pass the time!

4~No texting or talking on the phone.That makes me so mad when I see someone weaving all over and then come to find out that they are doing one or the other. There can't really be anything that important that can't wait until you get out of the car!

5~Make sure that you are prepared if you were to break down somewhere. Keep water~snacks~a blanket and a flashlight. As even though you have a cell phone it could take some time for someone to get to you..And it will keep you all happy until help arrives!

6~Think you can ignore a chip in your windshield? Think again! The windshield provides up to 30% of your vehicles structural integrity, and a chip smaller than 6 inches (or the size of a dollar bill) can easily be repaired by filling it with a special resin.

7~Make sure that you leave enough between you and the vehicle in front of you. As if they were to slam on their brakes~that will get you enough space and time to avoid a accident.

8~Check your tire pressure as you want to make sure that you have the correct amount of air in each of your tires.A under-inflated, over-inflated, worn down or misaligned tire can be extremely dangerous, particularly in hot summer weather.

9~Replace your windshield wipers.Winter is real tough on them~and you don't want them going out in a downpour!

10~Safelite AutoGlass brings you peace of mind by emailing you a Technician Profile before your appointment, showing you a photograph and credentials of the technician coming to your home or place of business.

So~those are my top 10 tips.I am sure that you have some of your own that I missed. I would love to hear yours too!
