Have you noticed a disturbing trend happening on our roads lately? Almost every day, we hear and see news about horrible road accidents with victims often ending up in the hospital. Or even worse.
According to the MMDA, vehicular accidents in Metro Manila alone almost doubled from 63,072 incidents in 2007 to 116,906 in 2018. That would mean around 300 accidents happening around the country every day. Road crash statistics in Metro Manila from January to August 2020 reflect at least 31,811 accidents, resulting in 136 deaths, 6,614 injured, and 25,061 cases of damaged property.
Mechanical failure is a leading cause of accidents. But did you know that such problems can be prevented early on? Worn-out or under-inflated tires, worn out brakes, suspension and steering issues, headlight/tail light malfunction, engine and transmission problems, and faulty windshield wipers can be spotted and fixed if you keep to a regular maintenance schedule.
What should every responsible car owner look out for? Just remember BLOWBAGET:
Battery. Make sure the connection is secure.
Lights. Are the headlights, tail brake lights, and signal lights properly working?
Oil. Check engine oil levels to see if it’s time for an oil change.
Water. Check the water level in your radiator.
Brakes. Be mindful of weak braking or brake failures. Also, check your brake fluid level.
Air. Do the tires have the right air pressure?
Gas. Do you have enough gas to get you through the day’s appointments?
Engine. Be mindful of slow response, unusual engine sounds and visible leaks.
Tires. Check the tire treads. Look out for possible punctures.
Lastly, your vehicle should also undergo routine professional tune-ups or Preventive Maintenance Schedule (PMS) to detect and prevent problems before they get any worse.
