Even if you’ve been driving for years, odds are you feel a little less confident driving at night. Driving after dark can be challenging for the most experienced drivers. Did you know that while just a quarter of driving occurs at night, this is the time when half the vehicle related deaths occur? Surely this has a lot to do with popular evening festivities and also limited visibility. Being a safe driver means being able to maneuver roads whether it is day or night. We’ve come up with 7 simple tips to improve your driving after dark.
1.) Adjust your Headlights
One of the quickest fixes to improve driving at night, is to take the time to check the alignment on your lights. When driving at night it’s essential to have your headlights pointed in the right direction. If you think your lights aren’t illuminating enough of the road, bring them to a professional or pull up to a wall at night to check them yourself. continue reading…
It may surprise you to hear, but that car alarm you just had to have doesn’t necessarily protect your vehicle from theft. A motor vehicle is stolen every 33 seconds in the United States. That’s according to an infographic released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which also states that 72% of all motor vehicles reported stolen are passenger cars. Yep, plain Jane passenger cars, not the amazing sports cars or high line coupes like you would imagine would be on the top of thieves’ wish lists.
This infographic has a couple of interesting tidbits about vehicle theft in the U.S., including the top 10 states and cities for car theft. You may be surprised to see New Jersey is tied for number 10 on Top U.S. States for Car Theft. Luckily, this infographic also provides a few tips on how to prevent vehicle theft.
One of the first things you learn as a new car owner is the importance of oil. Most people know that if you let your car run out of oil, you will be in a heap of trouble. Years ago, you knew that every 3 months or 3,000 miles it was time to change your oil. Today’s cars no longer adhere to that old rule. Instead, cars can go as many as 10,000 miles before requiring an oil change. With this much time in between changes, it’s important to check your oil levels. We recommend checking your oil at least once a month, more often if you notice it regularly low.
To many people checking your oil is an easy process. They would be correct, but for novice car owners, it can be a daunting task. We’ve created this simple step-by-step guide to checking your oil.

No one wakes up in the morning and says, “Oh boy, I hope I get a flat tire today!” It’s just not a fun experience, especially in winter weather. If you’re traveling at high speeds, a blowout flat tire can be dangerous. That’s why we decided to find 6 ways to prolong the life of your tires.
1. Keep Your Tires Inflated
When your tires are inflated to the correct pressure, they wear the way they’re designed to and you’ll get the most miles out of them. Check your owner’s manual to be sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure. If your tires are over-inflated, your vehicle will be difficult to handle and the ride will be rough. If your tires are underinflated, more of the tire touches the road surface and they wear more quickly, as well as reduce your fuel efficiency.
