Driving Tips

Whether you’re headed to work or cross-country to visit family, a little planning can save you a lot of trouble down the road. We’ve put together some tips for you and your car from our automotive experts.

  • First and foremost, check your fluids! Make sure all fluid levels are within the limits specified in your owner’s manual.

  • Keep on rollin’ Check your tires and make sure they’re inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended settings.

  • Lights & Windshields Check your wiper blades, all signals, headlights and interior lights.

  • Batteries, Belts & Hoses Visually inspect all belts & hoses for excessive wear and corrosion and have your battery checked.

  • In Case of Emergency Always carry your AAA card with you. Create an emergency kit to store in your car that includes non-perishable food, first aid items, water, jumper cables and basic tools. Keep your cell phone fully charged.

  • Getting there Get up-to-date maps and directions from AAA, of course. Plan plenty of stops and leave your itinerary with friends or family.

  • Pack smart Plan out what to bring ahead of time and make sure you’re not overloading your vehicle.

  • Avoid fatigue Get plenty of rest before a long drive, allow for frequent stops and switch drivers often, if possible.

  • Tow safely When towing a trailer, allow for extra stopping time. Check your owner’s manual for limits.

  • Take the scenic route Consider taking side roads to avoid heavily-trafficked interstates.

  • Be nice Driving can be frustrating – take it easy on yourself and other drivers. Use your signals, don’t tailgate and be patient with other drivers.
