Lastly, August may be the only month of the year without a holiday or some event marking it, but on August 24, there is the Blue and White Day.

Prescription Drugs and Driving Do Not Mix Understand the Risks of Driving Under the Influence of Prescribed Medication

A recent study found that almost 55% of Americans are taking some sort of prescription medication. In a perfect world, people on these medications would not be operating a vehicle, unfortunately, people do. So it is important for everyone to know what possible dangers could be in front of them when driving a car impaired by prescription drugs.
While many medications don’t have any meaningful impact on an individual’s ability to drive, Buckeye Superstore, which sells Dodges, Chryslers, Jeeps, RAMS and FIATS, encourages people to be aware of what he or she could be facing.
New studies have shown that even allergy medication can affect a person’s response time behind the wheel. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration recommends that people should stay from operating a motor vehicle if drugs have been taken for anxiety, antidepressants, products with codeine, cold and allergy products, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and pain relievers. It even warns people about “stay awake” drugs as these can exacerbate excitability or drowsiness.
People should ask, if not told by their doctor, how drugs being prescribed to them can affect their driving. It is better to fully be aware of the side effects and prepare accordingly than the alternative of causing a wreck because you weren’t capable of driving properly.
The Department of Motor Vehicles recommends some actions for those who find themselves behind the wheel and not feeling 100 percent.

  • Pull off the road if you’re swerving and nodding off or even experiencing blurriness. This can not only save your life but those driving around you.
  • When one is having a prescription filled, talk about the possible side effects with the pharmacist. Getting the low-down before driving can potentially life-saving.
  • Take some to look into the drug yourself. For drugs that treat allergies, anxiety, high blood pressure, pain, depression, or cholesterol, they can tend to impact a person’s reaction and motor skills.
  • Never drink any alcohol while on prescription drugs.

Here at the Buckeye Superstore, we care about every individual who walks through our doors, whether they leave in a new vehicle or not. If you are in the market for a new vehicle, stop by our store and speak with one of our experienced sales representatives.

The Facts Behind Our Super Carfax Fox Sale During Our Super Carfax Fox Sale, Check Out These Little-Known Facts About the Car Fox and His Useful Reports So You Can Purchase Pre-Owned Vehicles in Shelby, Ohio with Confidence

Our Super Carfax Fox Sale was recently held in early June, but what does that mean for you? It means that our pre-owned vehicle inventory is extensive, and as part of the family of Low Payment Kings dealerships, we are offering the lowest, most competitive sales on pre-owned vehicles in Shelby! That’s why we called the sale super, but to give our customers that extra peace of mind while shopping our incredible used car inventory, we offer a free Carfax Fox report.
Most consumers know that you can get useful information from a Carfax Fox report, such as how many owners the vehicles previously had, and whether the vehicle has been in an accident, etc.
But, a look through its website shows there are other facts from the trusted Car Fox that can help the consumer, both before and after you purchase your pre-owned vehicle.
A quick visit to their blog page and you can find that clear coat paint may give a car its vibrant look for longer, but during the summer consumers should practice caution to preserve the new care look. Here’s why: UV rays may still cause fading and extra steps to preserve that paint job may have to be taken, reports Carfax.
One solution, according to Carfax, is to regularly wax the car. Wax can create an extra bit of protection from those harmful UV rays, and doing this every three months can go a long way.
When on the road during the summer, drivers know air conditioning in a vehicle is not just a luxury, but it is necessary (unless having a sweaty shirt is something you don’t mind).
There are some signs that are fairly familiar if there’s a problem with the AC, such as the cool temperature felt or a noise coming when it is turned on letting the owner know the compressor has a problem. But Carfax said absent of those two problems is an odor. For those familiar with the odor of a locker room following a football game can signal a problem. That could mean there is a build up of mold. Another sign may be if the floorboard is wet. This one may be a bit harder to discover because mats may hide the damp floor and many times that floor is on the passenger side not allowing the driver to notice. What this usually means is there is a blocked drain and that water has to go somewhere. That is a sign the car has to be taken in because that is a problem consumers cannot fix themselves.
If you’re worried about your vehicle’s paint job, AC system, or are in need of a vehicle, come to Buckeye Superstore, where you will not only get the Carfax Fox Report for free, you’ll also have incredible options with only the best prices from the Low Payment Kings!
