The Florida Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles put out some tips for safe summer travel. Learn how to respond to aggressive driving and more!
“According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), drivers in the United States put more than 2,900 billion miles on their tires each year with approximately 11,000 tire-related crashes. Tires are your vehicle’s first line of defense on the road. To ensure everyone’s safety, regularly inspect and maintain your tires. Visit our Tire Safety page for more information.
A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, such as an airbag, car seat or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards. A recall notice is sent from the manufacturer to the consumer. Manufacturers are required to fix the problem by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund, or, in rare cases, repurchasing the vehicle. Be sure to check for recalls before you head out for summer travel. Visit our Vehicle Safety Recalls page for more information and to check if your vehicle has been issued a safety recall.”
