Spring weather is here. The cherry blossoms are budding in Wooster Square Park. The green is buzzing with activity. There is no better place to be then in New Haven in the Spring. It is a good opportunity to make sure your car is ready for the season change as well. Here is a checklist of three simple things you can do today to get your car ready for the change in weather and ensure that you do not get into a New Haven auto accident.
- Tire pressure. Checking your tire pressure and ensuring that the changes in temperatures haven’t let it fall below the recommended PSI for your vehicle can be critical when driving through the city. Low tire pressure can lead to less control and cause more of a chance of your car spinning into an accident.
- Check all of your mirrors and lights. The winter months can cause drastic changes to your lights and mirrors leaving them muddy or worse, broken. A broken tail light or mirror can not only get you pulled over, but it can also present a true driving hazard.
- Top off all fluids. Making sure your car’s fluids are completely filled and flushed out after a long treacherous winter can keep your car running smoothly while also helping you maintain safe driving conditions.
That’s it. Three simple steps to take to ensure that your car is in tip top shape for the upcoming Spring weather. If you can go through each item on this checklist and avoid a New Haven auto accident you’ll be out and about enjoying everything this wonderful city has to offer as the Winter weather gives way to Spring temperatures and outdoor hustle and bustle.
