Exterior Protection for Your Vehicle

If your vehicle is one of your prized possessions, chances are you don't really like the fall and winter weather. The harsh seasonal weather can really take a toll on your vehicle's exterior. To avoid damage on your vehicle's exterior this cold season Nortoil LLC in Lakeland has some tips to keep your car covered.

Get Your Car Washed

Regular car washes all year long, no matter the weather, are a great way to prevent damage to your exteriors. Regular washes will help you get rid of dirt and grime that builds up over time. During the cold season, rainstorms and and windy conditions can really contribute to the build up on your car. Don't let the bad weather deter you, and instead keep making regular visits to the car wash. If you're going to be driving through snow, a car wash will be necessary afterwards because the substances used to melt snow can be damaging to your exterior.

Prepare Your Vehicle Ice

As the temperatures continue to drop, ice on your windshield, windows and doors will become more and more common. If you're heading out the door for work a spray of warm water can help you get rid of the built up ice or frost. If the ice is harder to remove you can invest in a car de-icer. Look for an ice scraper that is safe to use on vehicles in order to keep your exterior fully protected.

Keep it Covered

The best way to keep your car safe from the elements is by keeping it indoors. If you have space in your garage, your best bet is to park your car in it while it's not in use. A covered space will keep it out of dangerous storms and will keep it warmer. If you don't have an indoor space for your vehicle check out different car cover options. There are heavy duty car covers available for vehicle's that aren't used daily and lighter options for daily drivers. Car covers can be a very effective barrier between your car and the outdoors.

Avoid Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents, yet most people don't take it very seriously. There are three main types of distractions that cause drivers to take their hands off steering wheel, their eyes off the road or their mind off of driving. The worst of distractions can cause a driver to do all three at the same time. Nortoil LLC in Lakeland has some tips to help you avoid these distractions and stay safe on the road.

Manual Distractions

Manual distractions cause you to take one or both hands off the steering wheel as you drive. The most common manual distractions include eating, grooming and changing the music while on the road. To easily avoid these types of distractions, completely finish getting ready before hitting the road. If you stop to pick up food while on the road, take some time to eat calmly before continuing your journey.

Visual Distractions

Visual distractions cause you to take your eyes off the road while your vehicle is moving. These can include messing with an electronic device, looking for an item or checking on a child in the backseat. Most of these distractions are double distractions because they also require that you take one or both hands off the steering wheel. To avoid these distractions, set electronic devices, like the music and your GPS, before you start driving. If you know you will need an item while driving, leave it out in an easy to reach spot. Secure your child and provide them with snacks and entertainment for the road.

Cognitive Distractions

Cognitive distractions cause you to lose focus on the road and take your mind elsewhere. These distractions include talking to passengers, daydreaming and checking emails. Checking your email or your phone in general is a triple distraction that can be incredibly dangerous. To avoid getting distracted by your phone turn it off or throw it in the backseat where you can't reach it. If you have passengers traveling with you, it's a good idea to have them answer your phone calls or messages if they're very important.

Keep Your Vehicle in Shape with Synthetic Oil in Lakeland

Not performing regular maintenance on your vehicle can also create distractions for you on the road. Strange noises coming from your engine or noticing a new light on your dashboard can cause you to take your eyes and your mind off the road. Avoid these distractions by performing regular maintenance and keeping up with scheduled oil changes.
