AAA Provides Tips for Travelers Coming Home From Thanksgiving


AAA of Michigan wants to remind holiday travelers to make sure you have a few items in your car while on the road.

According to AAA flat tires, dead batteries, and lockouts are the major problems the company will see the rest of the weekend. AAA of Michigan revealed tips that could help decrease road side issues as you return home.

“One of the most important things is to have an emergency kit, one with flares, water and other safety supplies if you do become disabled while on the side of the road.

We would also recommend that people have their batteries tested, have their tires checked and take their vehicle for an overall inspection to a trusted local dealer. They can use the AAA app, and they can simple locate where the nearest AAA automobile repair is located,” Sienkiewicz said.

AAA of Michigan predicts that they will rescue 370,000 drivers in Michigan throughout the rest of the holiday weekend.
