Holiday Driving Tips

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for helping the air!

Count to 10, Car Off Then! Unnecessary idling wastes gas and adds extra emissions to the air you are breathing. Turning off your engine when you know you’ll be parked and waiting for more than 10 seconds is a good air friendly habit. Whether you’re waiting in a drive thru for a fast food snack or picking up a friend at the mall, being Idle Free is healthier and more economical.

Nothing ruins a holiday trip like a blown tire or a slide into the ditch. Now is the time to check tire tread and tire pressure, before the wintry mix is part of the forecast. You’ll also get better gas mileage with tires at the correct pressure. That puts more cash into your holiday fund.

Give your vehicle the gift of scheduled maintenance. A well-maintained vehicle is a cleaner vehicle and regular oil changes extend its life.

KAIRE wishes you a healthy air friendly holiday!
