A very dear friend was recently stranded in her car on a very cold winter night. She ran out of gas and wasn't nervous about it until she went to use her cell phone and the battery wasn't charged. Fortunately, a good samaritan family stopped to see if they could help. Here are some things we all need to think about before we get in the car, even to go a short distance.


I am sure there are more good tips, but these are all I can think of right now.

Now that summer's here, keep an extra pair of sunglasses in your car or truck. That way you will have a pair if it gets too hot or you forget yours.

I strongly advise motorists to go to Motor Vehicle or online to get a copy of the driver's manual when driving in another state.

If you're sitting in traffic, try to leave sufficient space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, in case the vehicle behind you fails to see you stopped. If the driver behind you rear ends you, you'll have enough space to try to keep from hitting the vehicle in front of you.

I'm sure this happens in other areas, not just ours. When you see those bright orange construction signs on the highway, saying to reduce your speed, do it. Although it's usually an inconvenience, by slowing down and going the requested speed, they can save us a lot of money. Not only will they save you some gas, but if a highway patrol catches you going over the posted speed limit in a construction zone, your speeding ticket will be doubled the normal cost It also may save your life, as well as your vehicle.

When people get in your auto, make sure they buckle up. If they don't do it automatically, remind them by saying to them, "My car won't start until everyone is buckled up.
