MAKING SURE YOUR CAR IS SAFE DURING THE WINTER MONTHS



Hello lovelies, today I have for you something a little different, I am not personally a driver myself but a passenger always in my finance's car, mother in laws car etc along with my two gorgeous boys. My fiancé works away a lot in the week and now it's getting frosty, a bit slippery on the roads it is a constant worry for me when he is away and obviously when I get into the car along with my children, safety first!



I have spoke to my fiancé as like I mentioned before I don't drive and don't know an awful lot about cars to give you guys some tips how to make sure your car is safe to drive in the winter months and how important it is so check your tyres.

1. Check your tyres pressure, you can do this by getting a trusted tire gauge, compare the measures psi this will be found on the inside of the drivers car door or in the owners manual. If the psi is above the number, let air out until it matches, if below then add air until it reaches the right number. If it is low pressured it can lead to tire damage.

2. Inspect your tyres, Take a penny and hold Abe's body between your thumb and forefinger. Select a point on your tire where tread appears the lowest and place Lincoln's head into one of the grooves. If any part of Abe Lincoln's head is covered by the tread, you're driving with the legal and safe amount of tread. If your tread gets below that (approximately 2/32 of an inch), your car's ability to grip the road in adverse conditions is greatly reduced.

3. Tire rotation, moving your tyres around on your vehicle will not only save you money but your safety too, this will ensure that all tyres will wear evenly and will last longer, you should do this every 6-8 months.

4. Visually inspect your tyres once a month, especially as the weather climate changes.

5. If you do live in an area where you get a lot of snow and you see it at least twice a year you are best of actually buying some winter tyres, we don't really get to see a lot of snow. You can even buy tyres online now check out Point S it is an easy online booking system.

6. If you are a car owner and keep a spare tyre in the boot or wherever make sure it is in fully working condition and has been expected properly just in case an emergency should happen.

I hope these tips have been useful and you check your tyres before you head out over the winter months, be safe. Visit Point S and book online tyres through their easy online booking system.
