The importance of maintaining your tires cannot be over emphasized. As your only point of contact with the road, you depend on your tires to reach your destination safety every day. When did you last check your tires? If you're like most drivers, it's probably been awhile.

Check your tire pressure monthly when the tires are cold, and don't forget the spare! It is important to rotate your tires on the recommended schedule for your vehicle and to monitor your tread wear. We can do that for you. Give us a call today at 860-951-1083 to schedule your appointment.

Happy Mother's Day! Have a blessed day.

A Prayer for Mothers

All-loving God, we give you thanks and praise for mothers young and old. We pray for young mothers, who give life and count toes and tend to our every need; May they be blessed with patience and tenderness to care for their families and themselves with great joy. We pray for our own mothers who have nurtured and cared for us; May they continue to guide us in strong and gentle ways. We remember mothers who are separated from their children because of war, poverty, or conflict; May they feel the loving embrace of our God who wipes every tear away. We pray for women who are not mothers but still love and shape us with motherly care and compassion. We remember mothers. grandmothers, and great-grandmothers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish us with their love. Amen.

I miss you mom!

Eliminate your blind spot!

Many of us have had a close call or two from not being able to see what is in our blind spot while driving. Traditional wisdom recommends you adjust your side view mirrors until a portion of the door of your car is visible, figures 2 and 5 below. Notice how the red car is completely out of the field of vision. The Society of Automotive Engineers have a better way. They recommend you adjust your side mirrors until there is only slight overlap between their range of view and the view in your rearview mirror, figures 1 and 4 below. This eliminates the blind spot on the driver’s side, and takes advantage of a wider field of view on the passenger side rather than duplicating what you can already see in the rearview mirror. Cars coming up on either side show up in the side mirrors as soon as they leave the inside mirror. Adjusting to the new angles is disorienting for some drivers and takes some getting used to, but eliminating blind spots makes for a safer ride and reduces the need to look over your shoulder for lane changes.
