By Deanna Sclar

If your battery has died, you may be able to use jumper cables to jump start it from some good Samaritan’s vehicle. If you can safely use jumper cables on your vehicle, make sure that the battery on the good Samaritan’s vehicle has at least as much voltage as your own. As long as you hook up the cables properly, it doesn’t matter whether your vehicle has negative ground and the GS’s vehicle has positive ground, or your vehicle has an alternator and the GS’s vehicle has a generator.

Myrtle Beach Bicycle Accident Attorney

The Waccamaw Neck Bikeway, Huntington Beach State Park, the Conway Riverwalk, the Horry County Bike and Run Park, Vereen Memorial Historical Gardens, and the East Coast Greenway are bike trails the Myrtle Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau lists on its website. In addition to trails designed specifically for bicycles, many people in the Myrtle Beach area also use bikes as regular means of transportation, including getting to and from work by riding on city streets.
