What Back to School Means for Drivers

Back To School!

It's that time of year again when our mailboxes are brimming with flyers for back to school specials. Pens for a dime? Notebooks for a quarter? Back to school outfits for a toonie? Sounds good! We'll take a dozen of each!

"Back to school" means something else entirely for drivers

"Back to school" should be synonymous with "SLOW DOWN".

In the summer drivers tend to relax a little because (compared to winter driving) the roads are nice and dry and we can see further ahead.

Sending Your Child to College? Make Sure They're Ready With These Essential Items

The Essentials For Students in College

When a parent sends their children off to college, they'll send them on their way with all of the essentials that these students need to live while studying: Clean bedding and towels, laundry soap, and an industrial-sized box of macaroni and cheese.

What about transportation?

If your university-aged child is bringing a vehicle to college, make sure that they will be safe while driving. The vehicles of college students might not be the safest or most reliable pieces of machinery on the road. So while you should be sure that they have clean underwear to wear, you should also make sure that they can get to and from class safely.

Give them the gift of safety by bringing their vehicle in for a...
