Thirsty? 3 fluids your car likely needs, stat

Imagine yourself after a long-run. You might find yourself searching desperately for that water bottle, looking to quench your thirst. You might find it surprising, but your vehicle feels the same way, except your car requires more than just one fluid to quench its thirst. Here are three fluids your vehicle needs:  Engine Oil: This is an easy one; we all know our cars need this. We may know that your vehicle needs this, but do you know what this fluid actually does? Your engine oil is responsible for keeping all the components in your vehicle lubricated and functioning smoothly.  Transmission Fluid: Engine oil might be important, but so is transmission fluid.

Cell Phone Use in Tennessee

Cell Phone Use in Tennessee

Happy New Year! As we all prepare to leap forward with fresh resolve, many of us are considering ways that we can bring greater health and benefit to our lives. One of the ways we can do this is by examining our cell phone use, especially on the roads of Johnson City! Here are some tips to keep you safe on the road: First of all, beware of new laws coming in. As of July 1, 2018, there will be steep fines imposed for talking on a handheld device in a school zone. Laws will continue to evolve and change as technology does, so be sure to check frequently for updates.  However, if you are behind the wheel, you shouldn’t be touching your phone at all! Many newer vehicles now include Bluetooth-enabled phone interfaces so that you can access calls at a click of a button.  Another option is a cell phone mount like this one from Amazon. There are hundreds of mounts on the market now, so take a look around and find the one that suits you best. https://www.amazon.com/BESTR ... read more
