Visibility should not be Ignored

by | Mar 20, 2019 | Spring maintenance, Visibility, windshield, windshield wipers


You will want your vehicle to be as safe as possible when you drive. One way to help ensure this is to have the best visibility when you drive. Doing so will help you to see all around you, the other drivers, and the road ahead of you. Also remember not to be distracted when you drive. Put away your cell phone because it distracts you and increase the chance of an accident. Make sure that you have your seat belt on, radio and hvac system adjusted before you drive. This way you can focus on the road, and make sure that you are aware of all your surroundings.


The first thing to check is the windshield. Sometimes it may get a small chip or crack on it. If this is ignored, it can lead to a much larger problem with time. If the damage is bad, it could block your entire visibility when you drive. Make sure to clean the windshield anytime your visibility is less than ideal. This will help you to see the road and those in front of you as well.


The windshield wipers will also have to be inspected. With time and use, they will start to decrease in efficiency. If you notice that they are no longer clearing away precipitation as well as they used to, then it should be time to have them replaced. Make sure to get the correct size, so they cover your windshield as they operate. If you are not sure what type of wipers you need, make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can advise you on a pair. Also, check the rear windshield wiper if your vehicle is equipped with one. This will help you to see as you back up.
