Last night I hit the side of my garage while backing out of it. Do you have any tips to help me keep this from happening again?
First assess the space around your vehicle before entering it, to see how much room you have. Then, when you’re in the vehicle and start backing, turn the top of steering wheel in the direction you want the vehicle to go to help position your vehicle correctly.
My husband and I have noticed several new roundabouts being constructed in our neighborhood. What is the proper way to use one?
As you approach a roundabout, slow down, watch for pedestrians and bicyclists, and be prepared to stop if necessary. ONE-WAY signs should be mounted in the center island to help guide traffic. When you enter, yield to circulating traffic on your left, but do not stop if the way is clear. Upon passing the street prior to your exit, turn on your right turn signal and watch for pedestrians and bicyclists as you exit.
