Keeping a Safe Following Distance

Following a car too closely can result in an auto collision. It also increases the chance of a stone or other debris bouncing off the road and hitting the windshield, particularly when there is salt and cinders on the road.

Cleaning and Changing Wipers

Wipers become dirty and blunt after repeated use. There is a possibility that the dirt and sand in the wipers scratch the windshield of a car. It is easy to clean the wipers.

Just use a rag soaked in washer liquid in removing dirt and sand that became stuck in the wipers. Wipers also need to be changed regularly to prevent scratches on the windshield.

It is also important to not leave the wiper blades up before a snow or ice storm. The wipers can fall and break the windshield, which can lead to a windshield replacement job.
