Although residents of West Palm Beach enjoy a much milder winter than in most other states, drivers in Florida should still be prepared for the winter rainy season. Properly preparing your car for rain will help you prevent accidents and injuries, and it can even save your life.
Tips for Maintaining Your Car for the Rain
- Before the rainy season even begins, swap out your old wiper blades with fresh new ones. They are inexpensive, and can be changed in just a few minutes.
- Make sure your tires have proper tread. The classic penny trick works well – put a penny into a few tread grooves across the tire, and check to see if Lincoln’s head is partially covered. If so, you have suitable tread remaining
- Check your tire pressure. Underinflated tires can make you lose traction when the streets are wet.
- Always carry an emergency kit in your car, and keep your cell phone on you whenever you’re driving.
If you’ve been injured in a Florida car accident, call the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. to pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
