Happy Thanksgiving and
Happy Holidays to all!


If you're driving in New Jersey this Thanksgiving,
check out these tips

Travel early - a poll was conducted and most people planned to travel by car between 10 am and 5 pm on Thanksgiving Day. Of the NJ residents traveling on Thanksgiving Day:
  • 9% will travel between 6 am and 10 am
  • 45% will travel between 10 am and 1 pm
  • 42% will travel between 1 pm and 5 pm
  • The rest will travel later
Be prepared - know how to handle common roadside breakdown situations:

Tire changes - consult your owner's manual first and here are the basic steps - make sure to park your car in a safe place, on a level surface, use your parking brake and emergency flashers, and turn off the car. Slightly loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire, but don't take them off yet. Place your jack under the metal car frame (use extra caution with this step) and raise it. Remove the lug nuts and wheel. Now you can put on the spare. Loosely put the nuts back on and lower the car. Tighten the nuts by following a star-patterned order.

Jumping a dead battery - again, consult your car's owner manual to see if there are safety instructions and to make sure there are no other special instructions to follow. Always use caution when working with your car's electrical system and keep others away from the engine while jumping a battery.
Cables are generally connected in this order: attach a red-handled clamp to the positive (+) terminal on the dead battery. Then attach the other end of the red-handled clamp to the positive (+) terminal on the good battery. Attach the black-handled clamp to the negative (-) terminal on the good battery. Next attach the other end of the black-handled clamp to a piece of unpainted metal under the car's hood and away from moving parts.

Once the cables are connected, start the good car and let it run for several minutes before trying to start the disabled car. Disconnect the cables in reverse order.

We wish you safe travels and
a very happy holiday!
