Given that visibility is essential to safe driving, especially during the winter months, keeping your vehicle’s windshield in good shape is extremely important.
By simply taking the time to maintain your windshield’s health, you’re reducing the odds of encountering an accident or driving off the road. Some tips on how to keep your windshield in good shape can be found below:
Keep the Glass Clean. Make sure you top your washer fluid off whenever you take your car in for maintenance and always have a trusty ice-scraper on hand during the winter. You should also keep a cloth in your car in case you need it and make use of the squeegees available at service stations when you gas up.
Keep your Wipers Fresh. As soon as your wiper blades start to show signs of wear and tear, they should be replaced ASAP to prevent harmful scratches from appearing on your windshield.
Repel the Rain. By utilizing a rain repellent spray on your windshield, you can greatly improve your visibility during rainy days. These treatments are typically less than $10/bottle so this is an easy, inexpensive way to make your car safer.
In addition to keeping your windshield clean, you should also make a concerted effort to keep your headlights clean as you rely on these heavily to keep your visibility good during the winter months as well. The days are short at this time of year so you need as much help seeing the road as possible!
