Well for some... but for others the thought of snow and shoveling is not a pretty picture. As 2011 comes to an end, we wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday season. We hope you have found our posts interesting and that you will be back for more in 2012. We also want to thank those who participated in our poll, "We Want To Know What You Think" as it has given us great insight on topics for the New Year. Look for more posts on fuel efficiency, vehicle maintenance, fuel pricing and more in 2012. Don't forget to subscribe to the blog so you can get our weekly posts delivered right to your RSS reader or email. You can do this on the right hand side following the "Recent Posts" section.
Remember - this blog is meant for you, our PumpTalk readers, so please leave any suggestions, questions or comments you have in our comments section underneath each post.
And of course, as you're driving around doing your last minute shopping, visiting relatives and friends just keep in mind these Holiday safety tips:
- Don't drive in a hurry - better to be there a little late than to not be there at all.
- Have some patience for other drivers during the Holiday season - I'm sure they are running around trying to check their lists twice too!
- Top up that windshield washer fluid and clear away that snow (especially on the roof) before you get into your vehicle.
- Be aware that your stopping distance is reduced in winter weather.
There is a great chart on stopping distances for Winter Tires and All-Season Tires at the bottom of the page here.
Health Canada also has some great Holiday Safety Tips as well.
And ofcourse, if you are looking for last minute gifts check out a previous PumpTalk post which has some great ideas!
Wishing all our PumpTalk readers a Happy Holiday and a prosperous New Year,
- The PumpTalk team.
