If you’re planning even a short trip for the upcoming Labor Day weekend, make sure your car is ready.
Typically at this time of year, hundreds of thousands of people are making plans for a Labor Day getaway. But although people are tired of being locked up because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, it’s unclear how many will actually hit the road. In fact, the road travel situation is so murky, AAA did not release its annual Memorial Day travel predictions this year because there were just too many unknowns.
And, it looks as if AAA may not be releasing any predictions for Labor Day travel; although, AAA did predict in June that, between July 1 and Sept. 30, a total of about would be on the roads. That’s a 3.3 percent decrease when compared with the same three-month period in 2019.
If you’re one of those people who plans a Labor Day road trip, you need to be even more prepared than normal because, among other things, many businesses are not open or will not be open during their traditional hours. And, when you factor in social distancing, mask requirements that vary from state to state and even city to city, you need to be alert about what’s needed on your route and at your destination.
Then, too, you also need to take the typical precautions of making sure your car is ready for the trip. Consumer Reports suggests you include these items in your pre-trip checkup: fluids, hoses, belts, air filter, radiator, battery, wipers, brakes, lights and tires.
You can certainly check many of those yourself. But, to be double sure that your car is at maximum performance level, it’s wise to have a Millsboro auto care pro do the checking and any repairing that has to be done.
