A Few Things Every Driver Should Know
If you want to make your life as a driver easier, safer and more fun, there are a few tips, tricks and pieces of information that you should know…
How to Adjust Your Mirrors
You probably think that you know how to adjust your mirrors just fine, but if you’re not placing them so that you can’t see a single inch of your own car in them, then you’re not doing it optimally! Only when you can’t see any of your own vehicle, have your mirrors been placed in the perfect place for showing you those blind spots when you turn or switch lanes.
What to do After an Auto Accident
If you don’t know what to do after an auto accident, then you could end seriously inconveniencing yourself or even worse, putting yourself and others in serious danger. That’s why you should make sure that you click on the link above and put yourself in the picture.
Rubber Bands Make Great Phone Holders
If your car doesn’t have a phone holder, and you want to avoid losing your cell under the seats, so that you have to spend ages fishing it out, you simply take a rubber band, thread it through your vehicle’s air conditioning vent and voila, you have a great phone holder right to hand.
Perfect Your Parking with a Tennis Ball
If you’re one of those people who never knows when to stop backing up in the garage, hanging a tennis ball on a string in the exact place will really help you out. Once you reach the spot, it’ll hit your rear windscreen, and you can stop moving.
How to Change a Tire
Changing a tire is one of the most basic skills that every driver should have in their arsenal. It can save you so much time, hassle and even money if you can do it successfully. In order to change a tire, all you need is a lug wrench, jack and spare tire in the trunk. Simply loosen the lug nuts, jack up the car so that you can safely remove the tire, mount the spare, reattach the lug nuts and you’re done!
Snap Your Parking Spot
Taking a picture of your parking spot is a pretty simple way to ensure that you can always find your car again if you’re one of those people who spend ages looking around the lot at the mall. Why are cars so similar these days?
Jump Starting Your Car
You should always have a set of jumper cables in your car so that you can sort things out fast should your battery fail. To use jumper cables, all you need to do is attach the red clamps to the positive terminals and the black clamp to the negative. Turn on the live car’s engine, leave for a while, and then remove, starting with the black cable.
I hope this helps you to have a better time as a driver now that you know a few neat tips.
