Daylight savings time is around the corner. Families everywhere will be turning back the clock and checking other safety essentials around the house, like smoke detector batteries. We’d like to encourage Americans to add checking their vehicles for open recalls to their safety checklist. So many of us spend hours in the car commuting to work, driving to school, sports, etc. A quick safety check that takes a couple of minutes can help keep everyone safe on the road. We know: “Safe Cars Save Lives.”

We’d like you to encourage your followers to use NHTSA’s VIN Look-Up tool on SaferCar.gov at least twice a year to see if any of their vehicles are under a recall. To help remember, time the recall check with daylight saving time—every November when setting clocks back and every March when setting clocks forward.
