Protect yourself by prepping your car for warmer weather

With temperatures on the rise, there's no better time than now to prepare your car for the months to come. Proper preparation will go a long way in keeping your vehicle in good working condition while helping you avoid a roadside emergency or accident.

Here are three ways to prep your car for warmer weather:

  • Inspect the cooling system: This is a top cause of summer breakdowns, so it's imperative to protect against this. For example, get into the habit of flushing and refilling your car's cooling system every two years.
  • Inspect the tires: Worn down tires, for example, are more likely to burst in hot weather. Just the same, those that aren't properly inflated have a greater chance of giving out and stranding you on the side of the road.
  • Pack an emergency roadside kit: From flares to bandages, from water to a flashlight, there are many things you need to keep in your trunk or glove box. These items could save your life if you're stranded on the side of the road during the summer months (or at any other time of the year).

Along with the above, keep in mind that warmer weather often brings severe thunderstorms. Inspect your headlights and windshield wipers to ensure that they're functioning as expected.

Even if you take these steps to prep your car for warmer weather, you could still be injured in a motor vehicle accident. Remember, not all drivers take a high level of caution.

If you're involved in an accident, receive medical treatment, contact your insurance company and take the steps necessary to protect your legal rights and obtain compensation.
