Keep your Child Safe with These Tips for Preparing Your Car for School
When we think about preparing for the school year, our minds usually go to new books, clothes, and dorm furniture. But, don’t forget the importance of preparing your car for school. If you’re not sure where to start, we have you covered. Follow these easy tips so you can rest assured that your student driver is safe on the road.
It’s difficult to over-emphasize the importance of your car’s tires when it comes to overall safety. This fall, be sure to check on tire inflation, alignment and tread before sending your child back to school. If any of the tires looks particularly threadbare, it’s probably time to replace the whole set.
Update emergency kit
Hopefully, your child will never be in an emergency situation in their car, but in the event of such a situation, it’s crucial to have an emergency kit packed away. This should contain items like blankets, food, water, and a battery-powered cell phone charger.
Revisit safety basics
Most importantly, make sure to talk to your child about driving safety before they head off to school. Impress upon them the serious dangers of drinking and driving, as well as the dangers of driving while sleep deprived after an all-night study session.
