Save Gas!! Hey, gas has been creeping up a bit lately and if you are on a tight budget,
(even if you are not, saving fuel is good for everyone), here are a few simple things
you can do to get more miles per gallon.
Slow Down! Don't be in such a hurry! If you drive like you are not in a hurry, you will save gas (tires and brakes too). You will not start like you are racing the guy next to you and you will not tailgate so much and you will leave yourself plenty of room to let off the gas before braking. You will also save your brakes.
So, leave a few minutes early, drive unrushed, and put some extra cash in your pocket!
Welcome to Drive Rite!
School is in, so please drive careful. California has one of the faster speed limits around schools at 25 mph. Nevada is 15 mph and others are 20 mph. Please slow down around the schools. Remember that 25 mph can still cause extensive car damage and can serously hurt pedestrians.

Have fun out there ... and Drive Rite!
If you are going to the mountains for some winter sports fun, you either need to carry chains, have all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. The law says 4-wheel drive "with snow tires" for the most common "R2" condition. Caltrans has been letting most SUVs/trucks with good all-terrain tires and 4-wheel drive through, but they can stop you and ask if you have chains with your 4-wheel drive! Caltrans Winter Driving
If you need chains, put them on at home (in the warm) so you know that they fit and you
will not be wasting time out in the cold on the side of a snowy road. Even if you plan on
paying an installer, they are not on every highway in Califonia, be prepared to do it
yourself if need be.
Also always have a good window ice scraper with brush. Get the long handle and the short handle types. If you can, carry a shovel. If you have never been stuck in the snow, you will be.
