3 Things to Do Before Driving This Summer

Summer is a time of green grass and yellow sunshine, of relaxing by the pool, and taking an adventure off the beaten path—but not everything is easier in the summer. The warmer months also bring with them increased car failure, for a few key reasons.

  1. People are on the road more often in the summer. Winter is a time to huddle indoors, while summer unlocks our urge to roam. More miles on the road, more chances to break down.
  2. Batteries are damaged by high heat. Operating in temperatures above 77 degrees Fahrenheit can shorten a car battery's life.
  3. Heat causes the air in your tires to expand, which can lead to overinflation, which can cause a tire to blow out.

Before the weather in Florissant gets too hot, take the following preventative measures:

  • Inspect all tires for tread wear and proper inflation
  • Test the battery
  • Pack an emergency kit
