Winter car problems incease with AAA

If you thought the winter so far was brutal on you then imagine what it has done to your car.

AAA reports in January there were 196,000 calls for roadside service through out the entire region.  That’s up 11% for January 2010.  In Delaware that translates to:

Tow calls totaled 2,775 – up 4%
Battery calls totaled 1,769 – up 11%
Light Service calls totaled 2,193 – up 19%
Lock out service calls totaled 73 – down 13%

With the possibility of the first week in several without measurable snow AAA says it is rooting for the ground hog, but not holding out great hope.
