Here Are The Five Things You Should Do After A Car Accident

When you think about it, the roads can be a scary place. It seems like we have gotten comfortable with driving on a daily basis, and we take for granted how dangerous it can truly be. Just think about it, the average sized American man is about 5’10, 190 pounds, and can run at a top speed of 15 miles per hour. If you have ever seen a game of football before then you know how scary and damaging collisions between two grown men can be.

Cars, in contrast, average 4,009 pounds (over 200 times greater than that of a human) and can get to a top speed of over 100 miles per hour (almost ten times greater than a human). Car collisions are serious incidents and can be very dangerous for those involved, but thankfully technology has advanced to a point where vehicle companies like GMC and Buick are able to implement extensive safety measures to keep drivers and passengers safe in the event of a collision or equipment malfunction.

But just because your vehicle is effective at protecting you, doesn’t mean that you can relax on the road. In fact, often a collision is just the beginning of the potential dangers that you must be aware of when you get into an auto incident. That is why we here at Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park, your local GMC dealer in Los Angeles, have put together this handy guide to post-incident roadside safety.

  1. Stop and Collect Yourself

When an accident, popped tire, or other vehicle malfunction happens, adrenaline and emotions are high. During this time it is important to take a deep breath and gain your composure in order to avoid any further danger. Make sure everyone in your car is okay, and call an ambulance if necessary.

car-accident-safety-tips

  1. MoveYour Car to the Side of the Road

If your car is capable and road conditions allow, slowly and calmly move your vehicle to the side of the road. This is the safest place you could be after an accident, but if you are in a high traffic area and you aren’t sure if you can make it to the side of the road without endangering yourself or other drivers, or your vehicle has become inoperable, it is best to stay put and wait for help to arrive.

  1. Call the Police and Exchange Information

If your vehicle or a vehicle you collided with has any damage it is important to call the police and exchange all of the relevant insurance information. According to CarFax.com, this will include the involved party’s first and last name, home address, driver’s license number, license plate, phone number, email address, insurance company, policy number, and VIN. Photograph any damages to both your car and the other involved vehicle.

car-accident-what-to-do

  1. Don’t Admit Guilt

Don’t admit any guilt as this could affect how much of the cost of repairs your insurance will cover. The police will complete an accident report and will usually call a towing service that will take your vehicle to the closest repair shop unless you specify otherwise.

  1. File an Insurance Claim

To file an insurance claim you will need to provide your insurance company with all of the information that you collected from the involved parties and give a detailed description of how the accident happened. Again, it is important that you don’t admit guilt and let the insurance companies decide who was at fault.

After they decide who was responsible for the collision they will either make you pay your deductible and they will cover the rest of the cost of repairs, or if the other party was at fault, then they will make their insurance company pay for your vehicle’s repair.

The process of getting your vehicle repaired and completing the insurance claim can take a few weeks, so obviously it is best to avoid an auto incident altogether. That isn’t always possible, so in that case, this guide should help things go more smoothly at the scene.

How To Chill Out In Orange County This Summer

The country has been scorching and the summer’s really heating up here in Orange County. The area’s been the grip of several sweltering heat waves, and people are looking to cool off any way they can. So what are some of the many ways you can chill out in OC when the thermometer is ready to blow its top? Here are some suggestions from your friends at Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park.

Photo: www.soakcityoc.com Photo: www.soakcityoc.com

Head To A Theme Park – This may be a bit odd to suggest, but you can bet folks will be flocking to Knott’s Soak City Waterpark at Knott’s Berry Farm. A family favorite for splashing, swimming, and all sorts of aquatic fun, Soak City offers cabana rentals and such waterlogged attractions as Banzai Falls, the Laguna Storm Water Tower, and Malibu Run to name a few. And if you trek to Disneyland this summer (yes those pesky relatives are in town again), you can cool off on Pirates of the Caribbean, Grizzly River Run, It’s A Small World, Splash Mountain…well, you get the idea. Just remember: “Dead men tell no tales!”

Go To Da Beach – Yeppers, that’s a pretty obvious choice, isn’t it? But hey, this is Orange County, and we know how to beach. Pick your favorite – be it Newport, Huntington, Laguna, or Dana Point – grab some sunscreen and let the Pacific Ocean cool those hot tootsies… ahhhh! While you’re there, go on a whale-watching cruise or take the catamaran over to Catalina. You’ll have a whale of a time and cool off in the process.

Shop Till You Drop – The OC has a fantastic assortment of enclosed shopping malls to suit every fancy. So why not go on a shopping spree in air-conditioned comfort at one of our many area malls like South Coast Plaza, Brea Mall, or the Westminster Mall, to mention a few?

Go To A Movie – Orange County has movie theaters galore. The Krikorian Buena Park Metroplex 18, La Mirada 7 and plenty of others nearby offer an entertaining respite from the relentless OC sun.

Go Out To Dinner – The OC has, well, a bajillion or so excellent restaurants. So why not beat the heat by dining in a nice cool restaurant and enjoy some nice cool beverages while you’re at it? (Remember: if those beverages are alcoholic, please drink and drive responsibly.)

dealership-e1467309060246

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Watch the news on any given evening and you might hear stories like “The Dangers of GMOs” or “What’s in Your Dinner Tonight Might Just Kill You.” Now hopefully what was in your dinner tonight did not actually end up killing you, but we’re at a point in our society where we have become hyper-aware of every single health hazard or endangerment of our well being.

People protest pesticides, consumerism, and animal rights. They march for positive body image, equal wages, and religious freedom, and rightfully so. When people feel that their rights or their life are in danger, they try to take action and do something about it. One cause that doesn’t receive nearly enough attention is distracted driving, and the explanation as to why is simple.

Although distracted driving is responsible for around 5,000 deaths every year according toAAAFoundation.com, there are no social movements, protests or marches dedicated to fixing the problem. To us here at Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park, your preferred new GMC dealer in Buena Park, California, the reason is clear. Nobody is standing up against one of the most common killers of teen drivers in America because almost everyone has been guilty of distracted driving at some point in their lives and many drive while distracted on a daily basis.

disctracted-driving-crashes

Curing an Epidemic

According to Distraction.gov, 10% of all new drivers (15-19 years old) who experienced accidents were reported as distracted at the time of the collision. Even worse, 2 percent of drivers on the road at any time are text messaging or using handheld devices. This means that when you are driving on the highway at exceptional speeds, 2 out of every 100 drivers are distracted from the road at any moment and endangering all other drivers on the road.

According to CDC.gov, an astonishing 243,243 American teens were treated in emergency departments for injuries stemming from auto accidents in 2013 alone. This is not a small problem as it takes thousands of lives and sends hundreds of thousands of people to the hospital with injuries every year, and it isn’t one that is going away any time soon as more and more people who are attached to their cell phones begin driving.

What needs to happen is a widespread movement to end this type of damaging behavior. To this end, Buick and GMC have been installing systems such as Bluetooth hands-free calling and texting and voice-activated audio streaming into their vehicles. Although it is by no means a comprehensive solution to the distracted driving epidemic, it is a step in the right direction as it encourages drivers to keep their eyes and attention on the road instead of their phones.

distracted-driving-reminder

Models like the 2016 GMC Acadia and the 2016 Buick Cascada are helping their owners stay connected to the world around them while also supporting attentive, careful driving. Additional safety features such as lane departure warning, forward collision alert and blind zone alert are valuable safeguards, but again, nothing can protect a driver more than aware and alert driving habits.

Looking away from the road even for a second can be the difference between you arriving home safely and waking up in a hospital with terrible injuries. The text can wait. Stay alert when behind the wheel for yourself and for the drivers around you.

Test Drive One of the Safest Vehicles on the Road at Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park

If safety is a priority for you, then you will feel right at home at Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park where we have a variety of extremely safe used GMCs for sale in Buena Park, California. We are proud to support the movement to end distracted driving, so stop by our store located at 6600 Auto Center Drive, Buena Park, California 90621 to pick out your new Buick today.

El Niño 2015 Automotive Survival Guide

Meteorologists predict that this year the West Coast will experience a “super” El Niño; perhaps one of the strongest on record. Warmer ocean currents create much wetter storm systems and the potential for torrential downpours. We’ve already seen this happen recently with heavy rainstorms causing flooding and damaging mudslides in many areas of Southern California.

Because of the severe drought, many Southern Californians aren’t used to driving in all this wet weather. It’s no secret that highway accidents multiply exponentially when the rain starts falling. That’s why it’s more important than ever to prepare your vehicle for the coming onslaught of a far wetter than normal winter.

el-nino-hits-california-1024x796

At Simpson Buick GMC, your go-to new and used car Buick GMC dealership in Orange County, we believe in the adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” For this reason, we’ve come up with the following ways you can prepare your Buick, GMC, or another vehicle for this year’s predicted El Niño super storms.

 

The Four “Bs” Of Getting Your Car Ready For El Niño:

Blades – Good windshield wiper blades are a must when the rain starts pouring. If your wiper blades are streaking, skipping, or have worn/split rubber, replace them with genuine AC/Delco wiper blades to make sure they are up to the task of keeping your windshield clean and your visibility clear. Take the time to top off your windshield washer fluid reservoir. We stock genuine GM wiper blades especially made for your Buick or GMC here at our Simpson Buick GMC Service & Parts Department. We’ll also be happy to install them for you.

rainy-windshield

Battery – You don’t want to be stranded in a downpour with a dead battery. Inspect the battery posts and cables for corrosion and clean if necessary. If you’re finding it harder to start your car, have your battery, starter, and alternator checked by one of our GM-certified technicians here at Simpson Buick GMC to ensure that they are operating correctly.

Belts & Hoses– A shredded serpentine belt or blown radiator hose could leave you stranded. Over time, rubber loses its pliability, becoming hard and brittle. Look for cracks or shiny spots in belts. The same goes for hoses, which go bad from the inside out. Inspect for spongy, brittle, or bulging areas. Our technicians are trained to spot and correct these issues before they become a problem.

Brakes – Let’s face it, driving in So. Cal can be difficult even when the weather is sunny. More so when the weather turns nasty. Good brakes are essential, especially when the freeways are slick with rain, and the 405 is bumper-to-bumper. One thing you can do yourself is to look for low brake fluid levels in the transparent brake reservoir. If you are adding or replacing brake fluid yourself, make sure to use clean brake fluid from an unopened container to avoid contamination. If you think your brakes feel “mushy” or if your car grabs or pulls when you apply the brakes, let our OC Buick GMC dealership’s certified GM technicians thoroughly inspect your brakes for such things as warped rotors, sticking calipers, worn brake pads, and leaking brake fluid lines.

To complete your 2015 El Niño automotive survival guide, here are some additional things you should check to ensure your car is ready for this unpredictable winter weather season.

Tires – Check your tires for improper pressure, uneven wear, gouges or cracks in the sidewall, or any other abnormality. Refer to your owner’s manual for the correct tire pressure. You can also find this information on the inside of the driver’s side door. Invest in a good quality tire pressure gauge. Don’t forget to check the tire pressure of your spare.

Coolant – You should also inspect your coolant levels by looking at the plastic recovery reservoir next to the radiator. Do this when your engine is cold to avoid injury. You don’t have to remove the radiator cap, just fill the reservoir to the correct level using the proper kind of coolant. Consult your Buick or GMC owner’s manual or contact our Service Department if you aren’t sure what coolant to use.

Headlights And Taillights – When El Niño’s wet weather hits, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your headlights and taillights are working properly. Visually check your headlights, taillights, and brake lights. Most are very easy to replace by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. If your headlight lenses are cloudy, you can clean them yourself using one of many off-the-shelf headlight restoration kits on the market. Our Service Department can also assist you with replacing bulbs and cleaning plastic lenses.

Oil and Transmission Fluids – Locate the oil dipstick and check the oil level. If it’s a bit low, use the correct viscosity oil for your vehicle and top off the oil, being careful not to overfill. Consult your Buick or GMC owner’s manual for the proper oil to use in your car. You may sometimes find the correct oil to use on the oil filler cap.

Steering, Suspension & Alignment – If you notice that your car is constantly drifting to one side or the other and you’re having a tough time keeping it straight, it’s a sign that you need an alignment. If you car’s steering feels too heavy or too light, or if your car’s suspension isn’t taking the bumps like it used to, let our service techs diagnose the problem by road-testing your car.

If you’ve taken the right steps to prepare your car for the bad weather ahead, then you’ll be better prepared to survive El Niño 2015’s impact on our roadways.
