So many things can go wrong … and that’s on a nice-weather day. Toss in snow, sleet, slush and “mush” might be the command you’re giving to make headway toward grandma’s house for Thanksgiving.
We can’t conquer nature, poor road quality, bad drivers, or forgetfulness under holiday pressures (“Wait, did you lock the keys in the car?”). We’re only, ya know, human.
So what to do? Idea: Make a little checklist before getting behind the wheel. Don’t have time? No problem, our friends at In The Capital have done it for you.
For starters, make certain you’ve got an inflated, working (not warped; not on hidden the side of the garage) spare tire.
Having a spare, in the event of a flat tire (millions will get them this holiday season), is the difference between getting back on the road in an hour and jamming the family in with one of our friendly drivers as they tow your car to the shop (yep, Urgent.ly will be on duty over the holidays, and ready to help).
While riding in a big rig is a lot of fun, that glee won’t be shared by grandma – well maybe a little bit, as you’ll be showing up in time to do the dishes. So go ahead and make sure the spare’s a spare for real.
