Seeing is Believing When it Comes to Road Safety

Seeing is Believing When it Comes to Road Safety



It's no secret that properly functioning vehicle lights, wipers and mirrors allow for better visibility while driving, yet these items are often forgotten or ignored when performing basic auto care, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



"Making sure that you can see and be seen on the road is essential to avoiding motor vehicle accidents, yet many motorists overlook simple maintenance steps that can improve driving visibility," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "For example, community car care events held throughout the country reveal that nearly one in three vehicles inspected had insufficient wiper fluid. This simple auto care service can make a world of difference on the road."



Following a few auto care visibility tips can be illuminating, helping to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other vehicles around you.


  • Replace any exterior or interior lights that are dimming, rapidly blinking or non-functioning, and be sure headlights are correctly aimed.

  • Make sure that vehicle mirrors are clean and properly positioned.

  • Check windshield washer fluid level and when it gets low, replace it.

  • Replace wiper blades if they show cracking or if they chatter or streak when operating. Don't forget to check the rear wiper blade.

  • When in doubt, turn your lights on to help you see and help other drivers see you. Some states have laws that require headlights to be on when windshield wipers are operating.

  • Don't overdrive your headlights. Maintain a speed that will allow you to stop within the illuminated area, otherwise you create a blind crash zone in front of your vehicle.

My vehicle had a check engine light. Rather than bring it to the dealer, I decided to bring it to Ralph and the guys at Soundview Service Center. I heard they had an excellent reputation for being honest and fair. I am so glad I did. They fixed my problem very quickly and I will be back again! Thank you Ralph!

I have been bringing my vehicles here for 20 years. They are totally honest and do excellent work, that they stand behind. No work is ever done on my vehicle that I did not authorize, they are always up front about prices etc. They are not "cheap" but you get what you pay for! The prices are reasonable and the work is always worth what I pay. Ralph and Peter have done their Dad proud as they continue the work he started in this family business. I highly recommend them.

My work van suffered catastrophic engine failure, 70 miles from home! I didn't know the area but I luckily pulled into this gas station at 3:30 in the afternoon. My livelihood is in this van and I'm stuck. They took me right in, had parts needed delivered and reassembled the motor by 4:45pm. Charged an extremely reasonable price and I was on my way. They didn't know me from Adam and really took care of me. Can't praise them enough. Need auto work done, go there.
