Where to Find the Safety Information You Need for Your Car

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were someone you could turn to for all of the safety information regarding your car, tires, child restraints, and equipment? It can get exhausting searching multiple websites to find all of the information you need. You have go to one site for the crash test ratings of your vehicle, another to find out if you are installing your child’s car seat correctly, and yet another to find out if you are using the most dependable brand of tires.

 

There is a better way.

 

And that way is called SaferCar.gov. SaferCar is sponsored by the US Department of Transportation. They are a reliable source that does all of the legwork for you. They compile everything safety-related to driving and put it in one, easy-to-use website. They offer different sections for prospective vehicle owners, current vehicle owners, and parents. They also have a section for vehicle manufacturers, but chances are you don’t need that information.

How will SaferCar help me choose which car to purchase?

 

If you are in the market for a new car, you will definitely want to refer to this website before you make a purchase. It will help you compare the different crash test ratings of the cars you are considering. They also have an abundance of resources that will help you know what features to look for when you are out shopping.

 

How can they help if I already own a car?

 

This is where the site gets pretty cool. You can enter your vehicle information and you will automatically be contacted should a recall come out for your car. You can also file a complaint about your vehicle to help warn other drivers, or you can search for current complaints about your vehicle. If it is time for you to get new tires, SaferCar can help you do all of the necessary research to make sure you purchase dependable ones.

 

What about my kids’ safety?
