Seeing is Believing When it Comes to Road Safety




It's no secret that properly functioning vehicle lights, wipers and mirrors allow for better visibility while driving, yet these items are often forgotten or ignored when performing basic auto care, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



"Making sure that you can see and be seen on the road is essential to avoiding motor vehicle accidents, yet many motorists overlook simple maintenance steps that can improve driving visibility," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "For example, community car care events held throughout the country reveal that nearly one in three vehicles inspected had insufficient wiper fluid. This simple auto care service can make a world of difference on the road."



Following a few auto care visibility tips can be illuminating, helping to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other vehicles around you.


  • Replace any exterior or interior lights that are dimming, rapidly blinking or non-functioning, and be sure headlights are correctly aimed.

  • Make sure that vehicle mirrors are clean and properly positioned.

  • Check windshield washer fluid level and when it gets low, replace it.

  • Replace wiper blades if they show cracking or if they chatter or streak when operating. Don't forget to check the rear wiper blade.

  • When in doubt, turn your lights on to help you see and help other drivers see you. Some states have laws that require headlights to be on when windshield wipers are operating.

  • Don't overdrive your headlights. Maintain a speed that will allow you to stop within the illuminated area, otherwise you create a blind crash zone in front of your vehicle.

I have been coming here for about 7 years and previously drove a 2007 Hyundai Accent up until March 2022. As a single woman with an economy vehicle, it was such a relief to find a honest shop who didn't pressure me into purchasing things I really didn't need and definitely could not afford. At first I only used them for repairs, but eventually I started using them for routine oil changes and I'm so happy not to have to go to horrible Jiffy Lube and their high pressure sales anymore. They have great communication and provide solid advice, but if I chose not to do something I never felt any pressure or negativity from the mechanics. I recently purchased a Kia Niro and called to make sure they work on hybrids (they do.) Highly recommend!
