Take Care of Your Headlights
With time, your headlights will almost look “foggy”. This is quite a common occurrence that might end up becoming dangerous as it will give you less vision on the street. You can easily restore the headlights yourself or hire a professional to do that. Regardless of what solution you decide to adopt, take care of “foggy” headlights as soon as you spot them!
Don’t Let Your Tires Deflate
Driving with deflated tires can be dangerous and it might damage the tire, potentially representing a hazard for you while driving. As a good rule of thumb, checking the tire pressure every 30 days should keep you safe. Also, while you are at it, it could be a good idea to check their wear and tear in case you need a rotation or replacement.
