- How to Prepare Your Car for Wintertime Driving
It is that time of year when temperatures drop and snow begins to fall. In fact, snow fell in Flagstaff, Arizona this past week, making it difficult for drivers to safely navigate wintertime roadways.
To avoid dangers during the chilly months ahead, it is wise to start getting your car ready for winter now.
Below are some helpful tips for preparing your car for the upcoming cold season, so you can stay safe all winter long.
Check your tires for air pressure and ample tread. Its recommended that you check tires weekly in the winter. Consider replacing older tires with tires that can grip slick roadways. Do not forget to check your spare tire as well!
Use a windshield-wiper fluid specially designed for freezing temperatures and wintery precipitation.
Be sure your vehicle’s defroster, heater and wipers are in top working order.
Check the radiator and add new antifreeze. It’s best to replace, clean and flush antifreeze about every two years.
Keep your gas tank closer to full during the winter months. Doing so will help prevent excess moisture from freezing in the tank and fuel lines.
Check important systems of the car, including the brakes and exhaust. Brakes are a critical safety component to your car, while the exhaust is prone to leakage during colder months.
Be sure to keep an emergency kit containing a flashlight, ice scraper, water, jumper cables, snow brush, blanket, warm clothing, snacks, flares and other important items in your vehicle.
Check all lights on your car to ensure they are working properly, including the emergency flashers, interior and exterior lights, and headlights.
And as always, remember the attorneys at Phillips Law are committed to helping you and your family stay safe on Arizona’s roadways all year long.

Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Sophia H is very helpful.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
