October is filled with spooky fun for all ages! And Halloween has a very special place in childhood traditions. It's one of the first moments a child identifies their fears. By playing with those scares, kids learn to cope with what frightens them. As we grow up, we encounter a whole new set of scares, and we can learn to deal with those as well! 


A drive through Turlock can be scary for an adult. An unexpected pothole can send a heart racing. A plank of debris can rattle through us and our vehicle's suspension. The winter season brings rainy conditions, mud, and unforeseen hurdles we have to deal with. Turlock has a lot of long country roads; all sorts of spooky situations can happen!


Scares will always come when we least expect them, but we can do things to prepare for them! We went ahead and created a list of ways to deal with unexpected scares!


Change Your Windshield Wiper Blades - We've all seen the movie! A dark road, rain pouring, and the person driving can barely see due to their poor wiper performance! Keep yourself safe and avoid unexpected rainy scares by keeping your windshield wiper blades working properly and replacing them when they need updating.

Check Your Lights - Nothing is spookier than being stuck in the dark with low visibility. Beyond that, you want to make sure that other people can see what your vehicle is doing. Ensuring your brake lights function correctly will keep you safer at night!

Check Your Brakes - When encountering scary situations, nothing is more important than having brakes that function at their best level! You might encounter someone stopping suddenly, an unexpected pothole, or a washed-out country road. Have your brakes inspected by a trusted Auto Center.

Check Your Tires - In rainy winter conditions, it is essential to keep your tires in the best shape possible! Check your tire pressure and make sure it's in the recommended range for your tire model. Also, don't forget to check the tread and overall health of your tires. You want to make sure that they can adequately grip the road to avoid any scares!

Buy A Battery Jump Starter - We have all experienced being stuck in a bad situation with no way to get moving, cars passing us by, and nobody stops to help! Avoid this terrifying turmoil by investing in a battery Jump Starter. Technology has come a long way in the last ten years, and there are some great low-cost options available!


Scary situations can surprise us, and they are even more likely to happen in the poor weather conditions that accompany Winter. So, before hitting the road to visit the family this holiday season, make sure that you consider the things on this list to prepare your vehicle for unexpected scares.
