Summer will soon be coming to an end, and drivers will have to make some adjustments. Nearly 1.3 million people die in automobile accidents a year—that’s 3,287 fatal crashes a day. For obvious reasons, most car accidents happen during fog, rain, and snow. Making sure that your vehicle has tools and safety equipment can really save you from unpredictable weather. Here are some simple car care tips that could end up saving a life!
Windshield wipers are very important during the cold and rainy seasons. Be sure to have extra windshield wiper fluid in your car somewhere. Before heading out on a wet day, check to see if your wipers are leaving streaks of dirt that could impair your sight of the road. Checking for split rubber is also important—if the rubber is wearing out, chances are the wipers are not doing a very good job of clearing precipitation. Drivers should also make it a habit to at least have half a tank of gas before a long drive; you wouldn’t want to be stranded in harsh conditions. Although it may sound a bit extreme, everyone should keep drinking water, some food, and a first aid kit in their car. You know what they say, prepare for the worst but expect the best.
It is very important to drive as safe as possible in stormy circumstances. Regardless of the posted speed limit, your speed should depend on the surface of the road (wet, wide, narrow) and the weather, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. So if you are driving 45 miles per hour on the highway on an extremely foggy day, you could be cited for driving "too fast for conditions." Give yourself extra space from the car in front of you, and accelerate/brake lightly. This can prevent inconvenient little fender-benders.

When it comes to buying a new car, there are more than enough options. Hyundais are built around safety, which sets them apart from all competitors. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is dedicated to finding ways to make driving safer. Hyundai decided to take whatever the NHTSA had to say to heart, and invested in top-of-the-line vehicle safety features.
Skidding instead of stopping causes millions of fender-benders a day. So Hyundai decided to add anti-lock brakes and electronic brake-force distribution to all vehicles for extra stopping power. To assure your safety, Hyundai has also added ways to make the moment of impact from an accident less severe. These features include front and rear crumple zones, which work together to absorb the impact and protect all passengers. There are also active head restraints that move up and forward to avoid whiplash. Hyundai also added not one, not two, three, or four, but nine airbags that inflate from the dashboard, doors, seats, and even the roof to guarantee drivers’ safety.
If you’re looking to make your commute as safe as possible, come to Dublin Hyundai and let us assist you in searching for a Hyundai that is perfect for you! We’re always Doin’ It Right!
