With all the snowy weather we've had this winter there's a good chance that you may need chains on your car; especially if you travel over mountain passes.  Suzette Teagarden, owner of Reed Market Auto Service says its good to practice putting on chains in your garage. If you want help they'll even pitch in if needed. "Like I said, practice putting them on when you’re in a condition that doesn't require you to put them on. Bring your car in; we can teach you how to put the chains on safely. You also should do it in a dry condition; a lot better than when you are on the mountain.” It's also very important that you choose a safe place to pull over and put on the chains.   Reed Market Auto Services hosts a free clinic for women only. The next one is on March 17th from 6 to 7 pm.
