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.

l decided to have Beach Auto Care rebuild my transmission after talking with Josh, the manager. You will feel confident I'm sure, in having Beach Auto Care do your auto repairs. The office staff is friendly & knowledgeable and their mechanics are top notch and provide quality service. l will not hesitate to bring my car back to Beach Auto Care for any future repairs, and will recommend Beach Auto Care to all my friends and family.

The service was awesome. Dealing with the service manager and office folks was a real pleasure. They gave me a perfect diagnosis, and repaired my truck at a reasonable price. I've used them several times and have nothing but good things to say.

I recently got married and we went to PCB for our honeymoon. We were getting ready to leave when our gas petal went to the floor and would not accelerate. We were towed here where we had the best experience! We explained our situation and had to get back home in Georgia to make it to work the next day. The part we needed was not available until the next day or longer so they rigged it up for us good enough to get us home free of charge because he didn't want to make us pay for a job that "wasn't pretty" I'm glad we went there and I would highly recommend going there!
