Auto Body Experts at Superior Auto Body Saskatoon Give Gravel Road Safety Tips


As we all know, living in Saskatchewan you're bound to drive on a gravel road sooner or later. Make sure you're prepared properly! Here is a few tips from the experts themselves at Superior Auto Body:

Gravel roads are a part of life in Saskatchewan. They all have 1 thing in common: they can be dangerous. On average in Saskatchewan, rural municipal and roads on First Nation communities are the scenes of nearly 7,200 crashes each year. These collisions result in more than 1,000 injuries and 32 deaths annually. You can help protect yourself and your loved ones by following some basic gravel road safety tips:

Slow Down on Gravel Roads

Even the best-maintained gravel roads have rough sections and loose gravel that require lower speeds. Gravel roads without posted limits are 80 km/h zones, although it’s important to remember that this speed is for ideal conditions only. Your tires are another important reason to slow down. They have less traction on loose gravel, which can increase your risk of a collision when you accelerate or turn a corner. To get the most out of your tires, accelerate and brake gradually to avoid skidding. Also, try to avoid swerving to miss animals or objects on the road. Your vehicle may slip or even roll over. Remain calm if your vehicle begins to skid. Take your foot off the accelerator and declutch or shift into neutral. At the same time, look where you want to go and steer in that direction. Once you have regained control of the vehicle, resume driving at a lower speed.


Stay on the Tracks

When driving on gravel, it’s a good idea to drive in the tire tracks already on the road. This holds true even when there is only 1 set of tracks in the road’s centre. If you climb a hill or meet a vehicle travelling from the opposite direction, be prepared to slow down and pull over as far to the right as possible. Large trucks or farm implements may even require you to stop. Be careful when pulling over to the right because you risk slipping into the ditch if your tires go off the packed surface. If you find yourself drifting off the road, don’t slam on the brakes. Slow down gradually and then steer back onto the road.

Back Off




It takes longer to safely stop on gravel roads, and dust can greatly decrease your visibility. Even under the best conditions, it’s best to allow at least 6 seconds of following distance on gravel. If the conditions are less than ideal, you need to leave an even bigger gap between your vehicle and the 1 ahead.

Light It PP

Whether you’re enjoying an afternoon jaunt or making a twilight trip home, your headlights should always be on, especially if you’re driving on gravel. They help other drivers see you sooner than they otherwise might, ensuring you and all your precious cargo make it home safely.

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Body shop SGI tip on deductible payment plans

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Body Experts

Here they share a tip on Deductible Payment Plan:

 

 

You can use the Deductible Payment Plan to finance your deductible over a period of 10 months

We understand that coming up with the deductible can sometimes be tough on your budget.

It doesn't matter how your vehicle was damaged - collision, vandalism, hail or theft - if you have a deductible to pay, and you're eligible, you can access the plan.

You're eligible for the plan if your personal vehicle is both:

  • registered in the LV or F classes
  • covered by basic licence plate insurance

 

You're not eligible for the plan if:

Getting signed up

 

When you first report your claim to SGI, your adjuster will go over the program with you and let you know if you're eligible.

When you take your vehicle to SGI to be appraised, you'll get an application form to fill out. You can do 1 of 2 things:

  • You can fill out the form at that time and attach a void cheque.
  • You can give the completed form and void cheque to the autobody shop of your choice when you take your vehicle to be repaired.

Payment schedule

 

 

Your payments will start once your vehicle is fixed.

When you pick up your repaired vehicle, you must pay the autobody shop a down payment of $100.

For the balance of the deductible, a payment will be automatically deducted from your bank account over a period of 10 months. There is no interest charged, but a one-time administration fee of $30 will be charged with your first payment under the plan.

 

Maximum number of claims under the plan

 

You're allowed up to 3 claims through the plan at a time, as long as your account with SGI is in good standing on previous claims.

 

 

Superior Autobody Trusted Saskatoon Autobody professionals pass a Trusted Mystery Shop with flying colors

Being a Trusted Business on the Saskatoon directory comes with alot of responsibility, no other directory, advertising medium or ' watchdog organization' puts businesses through the process we do before we promote and endorse them. Most other organizations offer is checking that the business has a valid business license, and maybe that they have insurance and don't have a bad rating, 99% don't even bother with that and those that do rely on the consumers to provide ratings, mostly unverified and un-qualified.

 

The Trusted Saskatoon businesses become Partners with a contract, and they become part of a community. In a community we all have our parts to play to ensure the directory maintains the standards and high level of integrity that it does. To ensure that our partners are upholding these guarantees on a daily basis we have a MYSTERY SHOPPER PROGRAM, where normal everyday people mystery shop our Trusted Partners, we then get our mystery shoppers to fill out a report to tell us about the experience!
