With cold weather approaching, its important to make sure your car is ready and safe for travel.According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, 24 percent of weather-related crashes happen on snowy, slushy or icy pavement resulting in the deaths of over 1,300 people and over 116,800 injured each year. Annually, 15 percent of crashes happen during snowfall or sleet, resulting in nearly 900 deaths and 76,000 injuries. To help keep you safe, here’s four things to look over before you hit the roads:BatteryIt’s important to check your car’s battery life. Autozone offers free battery tests and battery charging. If you want to test the battery at home, you can use a multimeter, which costs $16.52 at Walmart.Charging a battery is different than jumpstarting a battery. Jumpstarting just provides the car a short burst of power to get it running, and is done when the car won’t start. If your car dies on Ball State University’s campus, you can call Charlie Charter to jump your car.If you need to jumpstart your car on your own, you need two things: a pair of jumper cables and willing driver to lend a helping hand, according to Toyota of Louisville. At Walmart a pair of jumper cables can cost $9.76.Toyota of Louisville states both vehicles need to be parked and suggests to engage the parking brake for safety. After opening both hoods and locating the batteries and the terminals as well as taking off any plastic covers, its important to check for corrosion. If there’s no corrosion, it’s time to start. Starting with the dead car, connect the red clamp to the postive terminal. Then, take the other red clamp and connect it to the working car’s positive post. Then, take the black clamp and connect it to the negative terminal on the working car. Take the last clamp and connect it to an unpainted piece of metal on the surface of the dead car.During the whole process of connecting cables, its important the cables don’t touch each other, according to Home Depot. Once everything is connected, it’s time to start the car. It’s important to jumpstart the car with a good battery, according to Toyota.After the car is jumped, take the cables off in the reverse order of how they were put on, according to Progressive.
