Tips for Christmas Travel

Christmas is just a few days away! If you’re like us, for many of you that means travelling this holiday season. Here are some travel tips from Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN to make sure your Christmas journey is merry.

As always, roads will be full of travelling families this week. Remember to take it slow, stay alert, and be patient. There will be a lot of distracted drivers, many of which aren’t highway veterans, so always look twice and pay attention. Many of you will be driving in unfamiliar places, or dealing with other drivers who are unfamiliar with your hometown. This combination is a recipe for fender benders, so be on the lookout!

Before you takeoff, make sure your tires are in good shape, your fluids are topped off, and your car isn’t giving you any indication of trouble. If you need a second opinion, feel free to come by before we close for the holiday and have one of our professionals give you their stamp of approval before hitting the road.

There are predictions for inclimate weather this week as well; pay attention to the forecast, and if you do get caught in bad weather, take it slow and be careful. Be sure your windshield wipers, headlights, and safety devices are in good working order, and be prepared for rain, snow, or shine.

If you need some last minute maintenance or peace of mind before making a trip this Christmas, come see us. If not, we’ll be here when you get home, and we hope you have a Merry Christmas and safe travels. Food, family, and fun await!
