As you check the vehicle before driving, also take a few minutes to look at the headlights and taillights. Doing so will help you to save issues and problems in the long run. You will also want to check the blinkers. If there are any problems with how they are operating, make sure to contact us. We can schedule an appointment to inspect it. Also remember that you should follow regular maintenance inspections for the car. This will help us and you be aware of any part that may need to be repaired or replaced soon. If you are not sure when the maintenance should be done, make sure to contact us. We can set up and advise a schedule for your vehicle.

Check the lights and blinkers

The headlights are important because they will help you see the road ahead of you. Having them aimed properly will allow you to see both the road and the ditch. If you cannot, then make sure to contact us. Having them aimed properly is important for your vision as you drive. You will also want to make sure they are not aimed too high so not to impair oncoming traffic’s vision. If it is, you run the risk of an accident occurring. Remember to check the brights and also fog lights of the vehicle. If either of these do not work correctly, contact us.


Check the blinkers for the vehicle as well. You will want to check both the front and both the rear ones. If they do not work, there might be a bad fuse for the vehicle. You will always want to make sure the blinkers work. If you are turning, the blinkers will alert others to the direction. That way you can avoid an accident by them running into you. You can turn on the left blinkers, and walk around the vehicle to check. Then turn on the right blinkers and do the same. If they start blinking slow, it could be a sign they are going to go out soon. So make sure to have the vehicle brought in for maintenance.
