Stay safe this holiday weekend- check your tire pressure before you drive!

The summer holidays are upon us- Thursday is Canada Day (Happy Canada Day to my dear Canadian readers!) and Sunday is Independence Day here in the US.  Happy 4th of July!  Which means that lots of people will be on the road this week and next week.

One easy thing that you can do to help stay safe is check your tires before you head out.  I was luck enough to get a handy tire gauge and tire safety checklist, thanks to the Michelin BzzAgent campaign going on now.  The checklist told me that it's important to check tire pressure often, to make sure that your alignment is checked periodically, make sure your tires are rotated often enough to prevent irregular tire wear, and make sure that there's sufficient tread left on your tires to provide good traction!

So, before you head out, take a minute and make sure your tires are ready to get you safely where you want to go. And Happy Canada Day/4th of July!!!
