Are Your Tires and Car Safe Enough to Prevent a Car Accident?

Car safety can mean road safety. When your car is well-maintained and in good shape, it responds as you need it to in order to help you avoid a car accident. A car in poor repair may not brake or stop correctly, potentially increasing your risk of being in a Florida car accident. To keep your car safer on the roads, make sure that you:

1) Take your car in for regular maintenance. If you notice something off with your car, take it in promptly to a trusted mechanic – before that small problem becomes a key hazard. Regular maintenance can also ensure that your mechanic can notice and deal with any potentially dangerous problems – such as brake issues.

2) Tighten your tires. If you have changed your tires changed recently, return to the mechanic within a few days to have your tires – and the lug nuts on them – retightened. Failure to do so can mean that your tires are too loose, which can be very dangerous as it can cause the tire to fly off while you are driving.

3) Check the age of your tires. When you notice that the treads on your tires are worn down, it is important to have your tires changed. Good treads are important for giving you good grip in all road conditions. Even if your treads are fine, however, take a closer look at the serial number on your tire to check when your tires were made. Rubber ages poorly, so even new tires that have been stored for a number of years can be a hazard on the roads.

4) Test the less important systems in your car. Windshield wiper fluid may not seem important – until your windshield gets sprayed with mud and you need to clean your windshield fast to see properly. Check the things your mechanic may not check – such as seatbelts, head rests, and sun visors – to make sure these things are there when you need them.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
