Pep Boys reminds all motorists that October is “See and be Safe” Month
Philadelphia (October 3, 2011) – The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: "PBY"), the nation's leading automotive aftermarket service and retail chain, remind all motorists to see and be safe, especially now as day light savings time ends, the weather changes and it becomes darker sooner.
According to the Motor Vehicle Lighting Council, an estimated 2.8 million accidents are a result of poor visibility. Many of these accidents can be avoided with a few simple, yet important visibility safety checks.
- HEADLIGHTS - Walk around your vehicle with the lights on. Check for any burnt out headlight, brake, fog and hi-beam bulbs and replace immediately.
- HEADLIGHT RESTORATION - Restore dull, cloudy, yellowed and hazy headlights, which are dangerous for nighttime driving.
- WINDSHIELD WIPERS - check your vehicle’s windshield wipers. If they are worn, cracked or streak when in use, it’s time to change them.
“Pep Boys offers everything you and your vehicle need to stay safe on the road,” said Bill Shull, Executive Vice President. “We carry a full line of wiper blades, vehicle light bulbs and headlight restoration kits. Our automotive experts will perform a free wiper blade installation at any of our locations and offer great advice and product deals for any do-it-yourselfer, so you can do the job right and stay safe now and throughout the winter months.”
