New Jersey User Thanks TranSafety for Battery Information

Reproduced below is an email TranSafety, Inc. recently received from an Internet user in New Jersey. It is good to know that the information at our website is being used around the country, and it is always nice to receive kind words from someone who has visited our web site.

Our New Jersey user wrote:

Just a note to thank you for your site. It came in handy today. The battery in my car went dead, and while attempting to remove it, I mistakenly started to disconnect the positive terminal first when it started to spark. Not being a pro at this stuff, I ran inside to check the web and found your site. So I went back out and disconnected the negative first. Thanks for saving me some burned fingers or worse.
