Millions of motorists are on the road. Keeping your vehicle properly maintained and serviced could not only reduce your chances of a breakdown, but also prevent a car fire. NFPA’s vehicle safety tips provide important reminders.
- Have your car serviced regularly by a professionally trained mechanic. If you spot leaks, your car is not running properly; get it checked.
- Never park a car where flammables, such as grass, are touching the catalytic converter.
- Drive safely to avoid an accident.
The tips sheetalso includes the danger signs to look for in your car and what to do if your car is on fire. You can check out all of the safety tips sheets on the NFPA website.
