  • Following - Drivers are required to leave a two-second gap between them and the vehicle they are following. This space must increase based on weather, traffic, road conditions and if the vehicle is hauling a trailer.

  • Signaling - When making turns, drivers are required to signal using the vehicle’s turn signals or the appropriate hand signals 100 feet in advance on city streets and 200 feet when traveling on highways.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
