KNOCK KNOCK, WHO’S THERE – WINTER
5 April 2016
I am sure some of you have noticed that the mornings are darker (for those that put in a good honest day’s work – none of this 9 to 5 business) and the evenings are drawing in a lot earlier than they were just a few weeks ago before Easter.
We are seeing sunrise at present at around 06h19 and they are predicting in the midst of winter to be around 06h49.
Now, for the diehard’s who still get up at the same time and get a good days work in, we now start using our headlights and when our minds are cold, sleep deprived, caffeine deprived and undergoing all other kinds of trauma, we all too often forget that we have got our headlights on. For those of us not so fortunate and have to manually switch our headlights off this can cause a huge problem and unnecessary stress when it comes to either going out to meetings in the day or to try and get back home in the evening.
You now have to call someone to come and jump-start your car and in peak hour traffic when a lot of other people face the same fate as you, this can often become a lengthy wait. And the more times you do this the more time your battery gets jumped and the quicker the life of the battery will diminish and eventually run out. And then that is another issue you need to contend with – having to swop your battery out in order to get home.
So, good people – remember to do carry out a few mental checks before leaving your car and rushing into the office for that much need cup of java. Maintain your battery and remember to switch your lights off.
Safe travel and happy motoring.
PS: If you do happen to find yourself in a spot with no “juice” in the battery, call us, we will make it simple, easy and stress free.
