Maintenance and finances
The financial responsibility of owning a car does not stop when you buy the car from the store.

You will need to pay for regular car service in order to make sure the car is always in the best condition and therefore minimize the chances of a motor accident. Many car owners neglect to have their vehicle serviced at the correct time due to financial restraints however, by doing so they are not only putting their own lives in danger but also the lives of anyone who travels in the car with them and also people who pass by on the streets when they are driving.
You will also need to pay to have a mechanic check your car for any damages or imperfections from time to time because these imperfections do not start to show signs until they are severe at which point it can often be too late. This is a mistake that many people make. They wait until the signs of damage appear and this can often be after a life or two have already been lost.It is important for you to keep in mind that with owning a car and driving a car comes a lot of responsibility. On the one hand, you will now be responsible for many lives on the road because every decision that you make on the street while driving could either save a life or take a life. Therefore, it is vital that you keep your head on your shoulders and make sure that you are able to take on this responsibility before you buy your first car.
