THANKSGIVING TRAVEL TIPS: CAR MAINTENANCE

SWhether you're driving an hour or
i ten to go home for the holidays,
make sure your car is in well-work-
ing order. The last thing you want
is to spend your Thanksgiving on
sthe side of 1-75 feeling like you're
in a Halloween movie. Some things
to do and consider are:

-When's the last time you got your car's oil changed? Some people
say you need to get it changed every 3,000 miles (roughly every 3
months). Even if your car doesn't need new oil, it's always good
to have your car inspected.
-Check the air pressure and fill all tires including the spare.
-Get or make your own roadside emergency kit.
-Make sure your cell phone is charged and that you have some
emergency cash on you.
-Know the directions of where you're going and a contact number.
Some areas may have no cell phone service.
-Try carpooling. It's eco-friendly twice over: for the environment
(ecology) and your wallet (economy).

For a complete list of car maintenance tips, see http://www.
ehow.com/ how_6071 _prepare-car-road. html.


DON'T STOP...MOVE!
To ensure the safety of police officers and state workers, Florida has
a Move-Over law. If there is an emergency, state, or police vehicle
on the side of the road, you must move atleast one lane over and
reduce your speed to 20mph below the posted speed limit.
Violators of this fine may be fined. For more details, go to
http:/ /www.flhsmv.gov/SafetyTips/MoveOverTips.htm.
