With school out and vacation season upon us, many families and individuals will be out on the road this summer.
No one wants to spend their vacation in a mechanic shop or stranded on the side of the road, so experts recommend that before going on a trip residents should do more than just fill their cars up with gas.
Carcare.org recommends that individuals get a pre-trip vehicle check to determine how ready their vehicle is for driving. Additionally, residents should take steps to fix any of the issues that arise during the check.
There’s something to be said about being friendly to one’s environment.
Of course, it’s easy to take steps to be more “green” when most of the footwork is already in place. For instance, if Lincoln Parish had a curbside recycling program — particularly one where plastics, paper and other recyclables were all put in a single bin together — then the majority of local residents would most likely take better care of the earth.
