Drive smart, Drive safe, and please Drive Prepared.

The new year is here, and has some weird weather with it. With the Weather being as nice as it has been, more people are out enjoying it. This means more vehicles on the roads, more vehicle issues, and more vehicle accidents. According to the Minnesota's Department of Public Safety's Webpage; there have already been 47 deaths, due to vehicle accidents, this year alone. Already almost an eighth of last year's 413 lives lost on our Minnesota Roads. There are  simple measures we can all take when driving, that include, but are not limited to: moving over for emergency vehicles & tow-trucks, patience, courtesy, observance, and proper vehicle upkeep.

While vehicle upkeep may not seem at the forefront of accident prevention, numbers also don't lie. For example, on average most pedestrian related vehicle accidents happen between 6 P.M and 9 P.M.(according to NHTSA[United States Department of Transportation]). Additionally according to a report in 2015 33,000 accidents nationally are tire related. If this was a human not a vehicle, we could simply say "Check your eyes and feet, and you can save lives". While that is not the best example,  I also understand how startling it can be to see those numbers. What's worse, is  to think that even one of those could be prevented, by a simple bit of checking and doing.

We recommend making sure to not delay, when you notice something is going on. Now we are aware that there are many Youtubers, and at home mechanics that are telling you; "when", and "when not to". They may have viewers and experience, but we wonder if they have the same sense we do. You see we believe it's Common Sense: If it's starting to go, and you're aware, why wouldn't you?
Not only do we provide FREE tire inspections, and FREE air, but with our 16 PT inspection (included with every Quality Lube, Oil, & Filter Service), we can help you keep you safe. As we have a large selection of bulbs, tires and more that can help you and all of Minnesota be a little bit more prepared. Remember safety isn't just about being Minnesota nice, it's about being Minnesota Right!
