A Web Log about traffic from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity
I’ll tell you this much about the secret location of my Phantom’s lair: it’s located in Greater Cincinnati. And our fair community is soaking wet. In yesterday’s rush-hour morning traffic there were over 25 wrecks on the roads and highways due to the slick surfaces.
Why? My theory is that, because we haven’t yet had any snow to speak of, drivers have decided that their worn treads were “good enough”. NO! Did you know that for the average 5-person sedan, the stopping distance on wet roads is TWICE that of dry roads? Add bad tires and diminished visibility in the rain into the mix, and you have a recipe for, oh, 25 WRECKS in one morning.
Do yourself and everyone who needs to get somewhere on time a favor. (or, a “solid” as my hip neighbor would say) Go to Tire Discounters immediately. Let their experts tell you whether or not your tires are safe in a rainstorm. They’ll tell it to you straight – at Tire Discounters they care far more about your safety than a mere tire sale. And, while you’re at it, pick up some new wiper blades to help with that visibility!
Cincinnati is Tire Discounters’ hometown. Please people, we can do better!
