When to Change Your tires
Check Your Tires!
Did you know that driving with bald tires can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol? That’s right – auto accidents caused by bald tires can be incredibly dangerous, and they’re wreaking havoc on our roads.
Tires Cause Wrecks
Bald tires are more likely to slip and skid on wet roads. This can lead to serious accidents – even fatalities. So, if you’re still rocking those old, bald tires, it’s time for an upgrade. Your safety – and the safety of others – depends on it.
If you aren’t sure about when to change your tires or how to determine if your tread is too low, check out this video by Scott Snellings for some basic tips.
Increased Traffic, Construction, Wrecks
North Texas is growing like crazy, and we are experiencing an increase in traffic, road construction, and auto accidents. Some of these wrecks are caused by traffic congestion and road conditions, but the condition of your car can play a role as well. You want to make sure your tires are ready to handle rain, lane changes at short notice, and many other conditions. A blowout can also send your car out of control causing an accident.
Major North Texas Roadways
Some of the major roadways in Frisco, Prosper, Celina, and Sherman are experiencing such accidents. Highways like the Dallas North Tollway, Highway 380, Interstate 75 and Highway 82 are experiencing single motor vehicle accidents as well as wrecks involving multiple vehicles due to someone failing to maintain their tires.
As responsible car owners and drivers, we want to be prepared for everything we encounter on the road to keep ourselves, our families, and others safe. One way to do that is to make sure our tires are in good condition.
As well, be sure to read next our blog on Insurance to make sure you are covered if you are in an accident. You can find Insurance: Menu a la Car here and Putting the “I” in Insurance here.
None of us wants to be in a wreck or find out our friends or loved ones have been in a car accident. However, being prepared for this can eliminate complications. You can download our Personal Injury Survival Guide here. The guide will walk you through the process as well as answer several frequently asked questions as well as questions you should be asking or thinking about.
