Why Is It A Good Idea To Replace Your Wipers Before This Winter?
After surviving the summer heat, or winter ice storms, and extremely abusing wiper blades going left and right thousands of times, you will notice that your car wiper blades are not working effectively, causing a low vision. You may be one of those drivers who underestimates those cheap pieces of rubber and say that it’s ok. I can now see the end of the road clearly, and it’s not going to be rainy all day. But let us tell you how dangerous it could be if you skip your wipers periodical replacement.
Replace your wipers before winter
Truck and vehicle accidents increase in the bad weather, this is a fact. Trucks’ drivers have different perspective dimensions than small vehicles. During bad weather or storms, drivers suffer lack of visibility and sometimes blinding spots, particularly at night especially because of the glare of headlights reflecting off the water on windshields. So if you can’t see the truck, and the truck driver can’t see you either, an unfortunate fatal car accident may happen. This low visibility or blinding spots, might be easily avoided by good new wipers.
So do you think your wipers can last more time?
These are four symptoms: one of them or more tells you that the wipers need to be replaced urgently!
Time: most experts say that wipers blades estimated life is from six to months, this depends on where you drive. Extreme high temperature or sub zero winter weather and searing sunshine would definitely decrease the estimated life and efficiency of your wipers. Those wipers are meant to go left and right for continuous hours, thus losing their flexibility and efficiency.

Texture: you may easily touch your wipers with your bare hands to locate any damage such as; easy peeling, dry rubber material, frayed edges, or cracked blades. All of these symptoms indicate that those old wipers are worn enough and need to be changed.
noises: streaking, scraping, squeaking or chattering sounds, as the wipers move against the windshield may indicate a problem in the wipers arm or worn off rubber, which affects the efficiency of the wipers.
windshield still wet: No matter how many times the wipers go left and right you may notice the windshield is still wet and large gaps where the water doesn’t remove and leaving a broken stream of water behind.
Wipers don’t get the respect and attention they deserve and are treated as just a cheap piece of rubber; although they take off rain, snow, ice and sometimes dirt. They might be taken for granted until an unfortunate accident or incident happens. Worn out wipers can play a tremendous role in a very costly car accident.
Wipers replacement is cheap to endure, injuries or fatal accidents are not.
