When getting ready to go on a road trip, we always fill our gas tanks, and make sure that you got an oil change, but do you think of checking your tires? This should be at the top of your list. The tire industry has designated May 28th to June 3rd as National Tire Safety Week, this is to help remind all motorists about the importance of checking your tires.

Summer to me means road trips! I love to get up early and just go..... to the Jersey Shore - an amusement park - out to see some sights - shopping.....just get in the car and go! But before you do that, you have to make sure that not only you are ready but also your car is ready for the trip. Is your car ready for your summer road trips? If you take the time to plan your trip, then you need to take the time to make sure that when you get in your car and go you don't have any problems - nothing worse than being stuck on the side of the road waiting for the tow truck and missing out on your day of fun....

I don't know about you and where you may live and have to travel. But around here - Interstate 81 has at time become a large parking lot. The other night a co-worker told me that it took her over 40 minutes to just go 1 exit down the road. Sitting in traffic, slow moving traffic, stop and go - that can lead to overheating if you don't watch! Overheating is the leading cause of preventable breakdowns and one of the main areas where prevention is much cheaper than the cure.
