From the hottest to coldest and wettest to driest, 2011 brought extreme weather. And predictions for a severe winter indicate more extreme weather is coming. And, the lovely folks at Michelin want us all to be safe. They have some easy tips for…your wiper blades (not tires like you’d expect).
Extreme weather takes a toll on a vehicle, including wiper blades. Age and use take an obvious toll, but extreme heat and non-use can also impact blade performance. Worn and damaged blades chatter, squeak, streak and smear instead of effectively wiping water away, reducing your view of the road ahead.
Inspecting wiper blades should be part of any vehicle safety check, but something many drivers overlook. Properly maintained wiper blades are a simple, low-cost way to ensure the clearest sightline in inclement weather and improve driving safety.
