Falling Asleep at the Wheel



Are you getting ready for an end of summer family vacation, 
please stay alert on the road!

Sleep deprivation or fatigue is equal to a .08 alcohol level.  
From 2009 - 2012, there's been an increase in fatal crashes involving large trucks.

The only way to protect yourself is to be overly aware while on the road and
learning a few defensive driving tactics to keep you safe.

 Some things to be on the lookout for:
  • Turning with a wide radius.
  • Straddling the center of the road or lane marker
  • Almost striking an object or other vehicle.
  • Weaving or zigzagging across the road.
  • Driving on other than a designated roadway.
  • Swerving or abruptly turning away from a generally straight course.
  • Turning abruptly or illegally.
  • Driving slower than 10 mph below speed limit.
  • Stopping without cause in a traffic lane.
  • Stopping inappropriately (other than in lane).
  • Drifting or moving in a straight-line at a slight angle to the roadway.
  • Erratic braking.
  • Driving into opposing or crossing traffic.
  • Signaling that is inconsistent with driving actions.
  • Slow response to traffic signals (sudden stop, delayed start).

How to have a great tow experience!





I found this great article on the steps for having a great tow experience..........

Not that we would want to have this experience at all, but since our vehicles
have a mind of their own we need to be prepared!

1.  Safety
2.  Preparation
3.  Making the Call
4.  Wait
5.  Towing


Better to be prepared than not!

Fuel Grade Makes a Difference

A study produced by AAA says
Not All Gasoline Created Equal


AAA Recommendations:
- Use gasoline that meets top tier standards
-Use the correct fuel for your vehicle
-Rough idle could indicate the need for better fuel
-Shop around for price


 I find these studies that AAA offers to be quite
useful and it is true..........we all look for price!  Maybe
it's time to think differently. 

Make it a great day!

Be Aware of Road Rage

Road rage is aggressive or angry behavior by a driver of an automobile 
or other road vehicle. Such behavior might include rude gestures, verbal insults, 
deliberately driving in an unsafe or threatening manner, or making threats. 
Road rage can lead to altercations, assaults, and collisions that result in injuries 
and even deaths. It can be thought of as an extreme case of aggressive driving.

      The following are common manifestations of road rage:
  • Generally aggressive driving, including sudden acceleration, braking, and close tailgating
  • Cutting others off in a lane, or deliberately preventing someone from merging
  • Chasing other motorists
  • Flashing lights and/or sounding the horn excessively
  • Yelling or exhibiting disruptive behavior at roadside establishments
  • Driving at high speeds in the median of a highway to terrify drivers in both lanes
  • Rude gestures (such as "the finger"
  • Shouting verbal abuses or threats
  • Intentionally causing a collision between vehicles
  • Hitting other vehicles
  • Assaulting other motorists, their passengers, cyclists, or pedestrians
  • Exiting the car to attempt to start confrontations, including striking other vehicles with an object
  • Threatening to use or using a firearm or other deadly weapon
  • Throwing projectiles from a moving vehicle with the intent of damaging other vehicles


From the Department of Motor Vehicle
BACK OFF
From Aggressive Driver's 

It doesn't matter who is right or wrong, your life matters.
So Back Off and get away from an aggressive driver. 

Be Safe.

Foggy, Hazy and Yellowed Headlights!


How to fix your headlights:  3 different methods

Safety is the real issue.
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, cloudy or
severely oxidized headlights can be found on nearly seven out of
every ten vehicles over three years old on the road today.  Poor
driving visibility is the leading cause of night time traffic accidents.

Summer Pet Care Reminder!


We love our pets and they love us!
So let's be sure to take care of them this summer.
Heat and humidity are sweltering for us and them!

It takes approximately 30 minutes for a dog
to become overheated and possibly a fatal situation
in a closed car - which becomes an oven, reaching
temps above 115 degrees.

Please, please.........should you lock your keys in
your car take immediate action.  If you call
George's Custom Towing, be sure to tell us of your
situation so we may get to you as quickly as possible.
We have pets too and love them just like you do.

Here are some quick summer dog safety tips:
- Do not walk your dog on hot asphalt............ooh, hurts their
little feet.
- Do not shave your dog, they get sunburns too!
-Check your dog for ticks
-Provide plenty of water

Does your dog have heat stroke?
Any signs of nausea/vomiting, dehydration, loss of
consciousness, stumbling, heavy panting, bright red tongue
or brain damage...............please rush to the Vet!

Can Your Tire Be Repaired?

When is your tire repairable?

That's my exact question this morning as I head off to
my local tire shop.

A few months ago I had a tiny nail in my front tire and
another in my back tire.  So I took them in to get patched.

My tires have 23,000 miles on them and there's still some
life left in them.  I've had them balanced and rotated along
the way and I mostly do local driving.  So, I'm trying to
keep my tires.

But when your warning sensor light keeps coming
on and it's making you crazy - well it's time to
take action.

In the last two weeks my back tire keeps losing air - a lot
of air.  So I keep filling it up!  But the weird thing is
that the sensor keeps going off for the front tire!

The moral of the story is that if you don't want to end up
with a flat in some isolated location.....take care of your tires.

But of course you can always call us if you find yourself with
an unexpected flat or blowout.
