Road Service Is Essential When Faced With Cold Temperatures

images-2.jpegFrigid temperatures make it essential for drivers to be covered by a roadside assistance program.  Calls for road service have been at an all time high due to winter conditions.  Don’t risk being stranded on the side of the road with no help.  Make sure you sign up for a road service program.

There are some things that motorists can do to help their vehicles avoid breakdowns.  First, check the strength of your battery.  Batteries that are faulty are the number one factor that causes cars not to start.  Next, it is best to park in a garage.  If this isn’t an option, park in a place that protects from heavy winds.  Finally, your fuel tank should be half-full to keep fuel-lines from freezing.

Of course you never know when you might have car problems.  So, if your vehicle leaves you stranded on the side of the road, make sure you are prepared with emergency supplies, such as blankets, gloves and a flashlight.  Also, it is important to have a cell phone in order to call for roadside assistance.
