Tips for Dealing With Highway Driving and Traffic

highway driver tips miami lakes automall

Whether you take the highway to work each day or love road trips, there are some things to keep in mind when driving on the highway. Read these tips regarding damage caused by dead bugs, driving etiquette, gas-related issues and more.


Damage from bugs is a bigger problem in South Florida than many other regions in the U.S., partly because of all of the Love Bugs in the area, and also because bugs are present year-round. Damage to your paint job caused by dead bugs is preventable in two ways. First, you can protect your vehicle with a protective film which will not only protect your vehicle from bugs, but it will also protect it from nicks from small rocks as well. If you don’t have a protective coat on your vehicle, the best thing to do to avoid bug damage is to wash your vehicle as soon as you can after a long road trip. Pro-tip: WD-40 helps get the bugs off easily (but also strips the wax from the finish.)! [click to continue…]

The van has two front seats for the driver and a passenger, and the cargo space features built-in storage cabinets, a small kitchen, bathroom, sofa and bed. The van gives Bob and his wife a comfortable retreat when organizing events at all hours of the day.
