Spring Showers Bring Safety Hazards for Drivers
BETHESDA, Md., March 1/ -- Worn out tires and
windshield wiper blades are typical examples of neglected vehicle
maintenance that put drivers and passengers at serious risk during
the rainy months of spring.
Thin tire treads create hazardous driving conditions
when water builds up, causing the tire to hydroplane and lose
contact with the pavement, similar to driving on ice. The simplest
way to check tire tread depth is with a penny. Insert the penny into
the grooves of the tread. If you are able to see all of Lincoln's
head, the tire needs replacement.
