North Carolina law states that if possible, you should move your vehicle to the side of the road. If the car is inoperable or unsafe, leave it where it is. If you notice the smell of gas or smoke, get everyone out the vehicle as soon as possible. Find a safe place to wait until law enforcement arrives. If you have a camera on hand, take some pictures of the scene. These pictures may be good evidence for your insurance claim.
Restaurants come in two categories. 1. Fast food-counter sales. 2. Sit down. Fast food restaurants have computerized cash registers that record the sales into its computer, which has a memory. This memory has daily totals going back to the beginning of the computer’s history. Most owners close out their cash registers at the end of the day and print out the tape of each day’s activities. This does not automatically wipe out the information for the day. The computer does, I am told, have a delete button on it allowing the owner to wipe out the full memory in the computer, in the event of an audit. I have also been told, but do not believe, that an electrical blackout can wipe out the memory in the computer and that is why one seller said he couldn’t give me access to this information.
Different parts of the country, the state, and most cities will be rated differently by insurers. Your current car insurance company will adjust your premium amounts following your relocation. This is a good time to explore the insurance market in your new location. A move to a rural area from a city can save you hundreds of dollars per year.
This may sound like common sense but you wouldn’t believe the amount of people I see get burned by them. This is what happens: you get in a little accident on the highway & a tow truck shows up out of the blue. He’ll likely offer to bring your car back to his preferred shop, the unsuspecting will go. Now here’s where it gets fun, that tow truck driver likely has a deal in place with the shop to receive a percentage of the repair. Some I’ve heard as high as 30%! So on a 00 job, 00 has to go to the tow truck driver. The shop needs to recover that cost as it’s not in the budget for your repair. They will often find creative ways to make up for it at your expense. ALWAYS pick your own shop!
Regular maintenance is important to help you monitor the conditions of your car and its components. If you regularly check your car, you can spot early signs of wear and tear and remedy it before the condition worsens. You have to check both the interior and exterior parts of the car to make sure that everything is still functioning well. For the interior parts, you can take your car to professional mechanics. For the exterior parts, you can take your car to an automotive paint tool in Manhattan Beach.
Any service like this should stand behind their work and offer some type of guarantee. They should back all their parts and labor with a warranty that lasts at least a year. If something falls off or if the paint fades after only a month then you want to make sure that they are willing to fix their mistake.
Another area to look at on your vehicle is the headlights. If your headlights are cloudy, hazy, or discolored then you are driving unsafely. Headlights in such condition reduce your night vision by 90%, that is a lot. So, if you want to keep safe on the road you will need the service called headlight restoration. You may think it is no big deal. However, since you night vision is reduced so much there is a bigger chance for you to be involved in an accident. That accident will most likely lead to more repairs for your vehicle and you may even have to pay for repairs for the other vehicle involved in the crash. That is a web that I would never want to get caught in.
