With a nuisance storm on its way to Chester County and Delaware County this Friday and several likely to follow before Spring is here, what should you be doing to make sure your vehicle is safe for travel on snowy and slick roads? Before we explore what you can do for your vehicle, let’s talk about what you can put in your vehicle. Always make sure your ice scraper is in your car rather than your garage. It is never a bad idea to have road flares, some sand or road salt in your trunk either, especially if your having difficulty getting out of a parking lot or parking spot.

As for what you can check on your car before heading out into nasty weather, let’s start with the tires. Make sure that your tires are properly inflated and have adequate tread depth before attempting to navigate nasty roads. Be sure to check fluid levels, especially windshield washing fluid to ensure that you can operate your car or truck safely to your destination. Finally, you can bring your car to Quick Lane at Garnet Ford for a thorough check of your brakes and battery so that you can have peace of mind as you set out through wintery roads this winter.
