Winter is Here, Drive Safe and Keep Your Car Running with Parts from East Coast Auto Salvage

Over the past few days a snowstorm has traveled from the West Coast to East Coast covering everything in it’s path. By the time it reached Connecticut this morning it was a messy mix of snow, sleet and rain. Every year it seems that with the first snow storm also come a lot of accidents, many of them minor spin outs and fender benders. On my 12 mile commute this morning I counted three and they were all SUVs and trucks that had lost control.

I would like to take a minute to remind everyone to drive safely and when there is a storm concentrating on the road and driving alertly is essential. Even a minor distraction is enough to send you sliding into a guard rail or the car in front of you. Don’t assume your SUV or truck will automatically save you from an accident either. As I mentioned all of the accidents I saw this morning were AWD vehicles who were probably driving faster or more carelessly because the driver assumed that they had better control. Concentrate, stay focused on your driving and leave a lot of room between you and the car in front of you.

And remember to keep your vehicle running safely. If you need replacement parts this winter season, whether it’s mechanical or a body part please remember that East Coast Auto Salvage is your best source for quality recycled parts, and we ship nationwide. Drive safe!
