When driving, your visibility is one of the most important things. This will help you to see the road ahead, as well as others around you. If you cannot see properly from all windows of your vehicle, you may increase the chance of an accident occurring. The first thing to inspect is the windshield. You will want it to be free of any cracks, divots, or damage. If there is an issue, make sure that you have it inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore it, it will only get worse. Sometimes the damage may impact your visibility. A large crack may line up with the road, so will not see if something is on it.

Windshield Wipers

The windshield wipers will also need to be inspected. Over time, they will start to wear and deteriorate from use. In the winter they can become damaged due to the ice, snow, and frequent use. It is recommended to change the wipers at least twice a year, so they are always in the best condition. If you are not sure if the windshield wipers should be replaced, we can help advise you on it. You may also notice an issue with them if they make odd noises as they operate. If they chatter or screech when going across the windshield, they should be replaced. Sometimes you may also notice that they are not clearing the windshield properly. This also can impair your visibility when you drive.

It is also important to check the other windows and rear windshield of your vehicle. This will help you to have the best visibility possible, all around your vehicle. If you cannot see, then there is an increased chance an accident could occur. Also remember to check the rear windshield wiper if your vehicle comes with one.
