Daylight saving time is around the corner. Families everywhere will be turning the clock forward and checking other safety essentials around the house, like changing smoke detector batteries. Unfortunately, most families don’t know that it’s also a good time to check their vehicles for open recalls. Since many Americans spend hours in the car commuting to work, the few minutes spent maintaining the family car can help keep everyone safe on the road. Remember: “Safe Cars Save Lives.”

We’d like you to encourage your followers to use NHTSA’s VIN Look-Up tool on 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 March when setting clocks forward and every November when setting clocks back.

We are hosting a #CheckForRecalls Tweet Up and we’d love for you to join us and spread this message to your friends, family, and followers.
