Always Check Your Vehicle Before You Leave

Start by inspecting your vehicle’s headlights and turn signals. Be sure that both front and rear headlamps are working properly and visible enough a couple of yards away.

Also, take a reading of your tire pressure and make sure you maintain the recommended maximum. While at it, take a peek under your vehicle and ensure there are no loose objects or leaks.

Most importantly, stay focused while on the road. Remove all distractions that could cause accidents such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.

Crashes similar to the big rig crash on Highway 18, are an inconvenience, to say the least; however, reaching out for help can guarantee you don’t suffer further.
