NHTSA Winter Travel Tips

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants to make sure drivers and their cars will be ready for the cold this winter. The list of safety tips include:

Get Your Car Serviced- Visit your mechanic for a tune-up and other routine maintenance. Have your car checked thoroughly for leaks, worn hoses or other needed parts, repairs, and replacements.

Check for Recalls: The NHTSA’s Recalls Look-Up Tool allows you to enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to see if that vehicle has been recalled in the last 15 years.

Know Your Car- Take the time to learn how your car handles under winter weather driving and sharpen your winter weather driving skills.

Review Your Vehicle Safety Checklist- Have your mechanic check your battery for sufficient voltage. And get the charging system and belts inspected.

Wipers and Defrosters- Make sure both work and consider installing heavy-duty winter wipers.
