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.

Reviews

Awesome and honest service! My former mechanic retired, and he recommended Chris and his team. It's hard to find a great mechanic, but I'm grateful to be able to bring my car to Golf Crawford Auto Service.

I was looking for a car repair service and was referred to the Golf Crawford Auto Service. Chris and all of his mechanics were wonderful. I told him the problems I was having and he told me he would let me know what he found. Chris called and let me know what was wrong and also made some safety suggestions. I was told what the cost would be with or without the safety fixes. My car was fixed as promised and the cost were very reasonable. It's hard to find mechanics that are professional, reasonable and most importantly knowledgeable. If you ever need service for your auto, this is the one I suggest.

I've been meaning a review for these guys for a long time. We found Chris through a recommendation from Armin at Lake Side Auto Rebuilders (also an awesome shop I highly recommend) and Chris and his crew have exceeded expectations. We drive new and old cars, and most recently we were headed on a cross country road trip in our 10 year old suburban. We had not gotten more than 15 minutes out and a major piece broke off the bottom of our vehicle, and we had to get it repaired going any further on our trip. We took it to Chris, who is usually booked weeks out, and he was able to squeeze us in, miraculously had the part we needed, and got us up and going on our trip out west before the morning was over. This is just one of many times They have helped us. Chris will do everything he can to help you out - he & his crew know what they are doing and will give you an honest deal.
