A study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that thousands of motor vehicle accidents each year are attributed to faulty equipment. The New York Car Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices point out several simple steps that can help reduce the chances of being involved in an collision.
An article from WKBW News reports that AAA encourages drivers to regularly check the inflation pressure and tread on their vehicle’s tires. A vehicle’s manual will list what pressure tires should be inflated to. The article also explains that placing a quarter into the tread on a tire is a great way to check tire life. Experts say that if the top of Washington’s head on the coin is exposed, it’s time for new tires.
It is important to have the battery of a vehicle checked for a strong charge at each oil change when the terminals of the device are cleaned. A vehicle’s windshield wipers should also be checked at each scheduled oil change as well.
AAA also recommends finding a reputable mechanic through online reviews or recommendations from friends and family.
William Mattar and his team of New York Personal Injury Lawyers are hopeful these tips will be effective in helping each and every motorist safe during their travels!
