Back to School Car Safety Tips

Back to School Car Safety Tips

At the end of summer, we should pay closer attention to our surroundings and adjust our driving accordingly for the return of school children, school buses, and parent traffic, especially around school zones.

American Car Center wants to help keep our children safe this school year. Here are some key tips for drivers, parents, and kids for improved safety.

Safety tips for drivers

  1. Slow down and watch out for kids and be prepared to stop – especially in or near school and residential areas, intersections, and crosswalks.
  2. Look for clues such as “Slow Down, Children At Play” signs, school zone signs, safety patrollers, bicycles, and playgrounds.
  3. Expect the unexpected – such as kids darting out from between parked cars.
  4. Always check for pedestrians when you are backing up and be aware that kids could be present on any side of the vehicle.
  5. Let kids out on the side of the car closest to the sidewalk when dropping them off at school.
  6. Follow the rules of the road – yield to pedestrians and do not make U-turns, roll through stop signs, or stop in no-stopping zones.
  7. Do not pass school buses when their red lights are flashing as children are loading and unloading. Use extra caution in adverse weather conditions.

Safety tips for parents and kids

  1. Teach your kids to find a safe place to cross the road, such as patrolled or marked crosswalks.
  2. Teach them to look all directions and make eye contact with drivers before they cross the street.
  3. Make it a rule for kids to stay off their cell phones or electronic devices while crossing the street.
  4. Plan a safe route – walk on the sidewalk and consider having your child walk with a friend or parent or join a walking school bus.
  5. Teach your kids to look out for parked cars as cars may pull out or start moving when they do not expect it.
  6. Make sure your kids wear bright or reflective clothing so they can be seen in the dark or in poor weather. If they ride a bike, make sure they always wear a helmet and clothing with reflective strips. Equip their bike with lights, reflectors, and a bell.

Taking a few simple steps will better protect school children as they return to the classroom. American Car Center extends best wishes to all kids and their parents for a happy and successful school year.

Why Choosing Used Is a Smart Choice

ACC September 2020 Blog - Why Chosing Used is a Smart Choice

Shopping for your next vehicle is exciting. While there are many important considerations – vehicle type, safety features, color – as part of your decision, the first is certainly choosing between a new or used vehicle. American Car Center believes that for most car shoppers, choosing previously owned is a smarter choice than buying new.

There are many benefits of choosing a used vehicle aside from the obviously lower sticker price. Previously owned cars and trucks are less expensive in several ways. A used vehicle will save you money when you buy auto insurance and likely reduce the total financing costs due to the vehicle’s lower price.

A used vehicle can more easily fit into a monthly budget. With a less costly used vehicle, monthly payments will be lower and because used vehicles are so much less expensive than new cars, you can drive a nicer vehicle than you might have otherwise been able to afford, giving you more choices.

When a new vehicle is driven away from the dealership, its value begins to drop. The greatest decline of vehicle value – depreciation – occurs in its first years. By choosing previously owned instead, you avoid that massive cost and receive a much more affordable vehicle that will now depreciate more slowly.

Also, because you are likely to have lower monthly costs and a slowly depreciating vehicle you are much less likely to be in a devastating negative equity situation, owing more on the vehicle than its worth, should your vehicle be stolen or declared a total loss after a collision.

Once a car has been on the road for two or three years, it will have developed a reliability record. Used vehicle rankings and reviews have information about total cost of ownership, so you can better identify reliable, low-maintenance models – those without a history of premature repair costs – and avoid the rest. Online owner forums are another source of information to gauge the strengths and weaknesses of any given model.

American Car Center is here to make your next vehicle selection smooth, simple, and fast. Across the Southeast, American Car Center has more than 65 convenient and modern locations all with a huge selection of fantastic late-model and low mileage used vehicles. Each vehicle comes with a limited powertrain warranty of up to 3 years or 36,000 miles and included oil changes. Save time and money – visit now to find a great car or truck to make your fall and winter driving safe and satisfying.

Have a Safe Summer Getaway!

American Car Center Guide to a Safe Summer Getaway!

More than ever, now is the time for a safe summer getaway to enjoy the fresh air of the great outdoors and discover the timeless beauty of the peaks, valleys, nooks, and corners of the place we call home, the majestic Southeast. American Car Center has some ideas for fun and exploration.

The country’s largest cavern network is deep below the rugged hills of south-central Kentucky. Mammoth Cave National Park encompasses the most visitor-friendly part of the massive cave system. There are more than 400 miles of explored caverns here and Mammoth is known for vast caverns, some several stories high. Fans of hiking and climbing will love the rocky, forested landscape above the caverns which is great for exploring and camping.

On the Southeast Atlantic coast, between Charleston and Savannah, are five Georgia wildlife refuges; watery, thinly populated views of forest and marshland. The refuges are full of wildlife, especially migratory birds and waterfowl. Numerous campgrounds and affordable simple lodgings help to keep costs low. Public beaches are also plentiful.

The spine of the Appalachian Mountains runs along the Virginia-West Virginia border, protecting thousands of square miles of pristine, thinly populated forest land. The natural beauty is stunning and there are many places to explore. The area features the Monongahela, George Washington, and Jefferson National Forests, with Shenandoah National Park nearby. Convenient and affordable, these emerald gems are almost unbeatable for hiking and camping.

Near Gatlinburg, Mississippi, is one of the best-kept secrets of the Smokey Mountains. Nestled in the rolling hills, Place of a Thousand Drips is a waterfall named for the many rocks over which the water must cascade, seemingly leaving it forever dripping. Over an age, the water has carved several paths into the stone, creating the illusion of several small waterfalls. Visitors drive along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail to find the site

The great beach towns of the Gulf Coast are popular with families in summer for their natural white sand beaches and casual charm. The adjoining towns of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama combine for 32 miles of dazzling beaches, water sports, and other outdoor activities and camping areas for a family stay. On the Florida side, Panama City Beach boasts 27 miles of beach, ideal for long walks and people watching from the pier. In addition, hiking, biking, and kayaking are on hand.

If summer driving is more to your speed, you can cruise the Natchez Trace. The 444-mile parkway follows a historical route used by Native Americans and settlers from Natchez, Mississippi, to Nashville, Tennessee. A great deal of the land along the Trace is protected, making for an idyllic drive through lush and rolling hills. If a staycation is what you want, be sure to take advantage of activities in regional parks. Those with a curious bent may want to consider walking tours of landmarks and sites in Southeast’s picturesque and history-filled cities. Richmond, Virginia, Savannah, Nashville, and Delray Beach, Florida, amongst others, are interesting and very walkable.

American Car Center hopes you make lasting memories of your getaway this summer. See us before you go! There is a location convenient to you, stocked with great late-model and low-mileage vehicles, with a limited warranty and oil changes for up to 3 years. We will quickly help you find a vehicle to take you to the place where you want to be.

Great Spring Break Getaway Ideas from The King of Credit

For millions of American kids, spring break is a cherished week-long ritual marking the end of winter and a chance to simply have some fun. A quick getaway during the break is a fantastic opportunity for families to spend a few days together, looking forward to sunny times ahead. Luckily, there are plenty of budget-friendly and kid-approved places to visit throughout the Southeast. Let’s get you thinking excitement or leisure, or both, with a few suggestions of a great spring break destination from American Car Center.

Orlando, home to Disney World and several more Disney parks, is the world’s top destination for families. Many hotels offer free shuttles to Disney attractions and Disney has its own resorts on-site to maximize your time sliding and riding the attractions. Nearby Universal Orlando also draws families and the young-at-heart from across the country.

The great beach towns of the Gulf Coast are popular with families come spring for their nature preserves, white sand beaches, and casual seafood restaurants. The adjoining towns of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama, are two such examples, boasting 32 miles of spectacular beaches, water sports, and other outdoor activities. There are plenty of inexpensive accommodations and camping areas for a family stay.

Every spring, Washington, D.C. explodes with blooming cherry blossom trees. The National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place from mid-March to mid-April, in the middle of spring break for most families. The cherry blossom trees grow in three National Park Service locations. The Blossom Kite Festival and the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade headline the festival. The nation’s capital is also a magnet for kids with a curious or historic bent. For them, a visit to a Smithsonian museum (there are 17!) and the Lincoln Memorial are a must.

Country music fans will want to visit Music City, a.k.a. Nashville, Tennessee, for concerts at Ryman Auditorium, a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame and a visit to Bluebird Café. Classic BBQ joints, like The Stillery, or Arnold’s Country Kitchen for mac & cheese, will satisfy even the fussiest eaters. For hands-on exploration, kids love the Nashville Zoo and Adventure Science Center.

America’s national parks offer families an amazingly affordable way to visit cherished and stunning landscapes, observe wildlife in natural habitat and simply unplug from daily life. Spring is shoulder season in most parks, so you’ll see fewer crowds. The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests span 28 counties of northern Georgia with stunning landscapes, including, mountains, canyons, and cascading waterfalls.
