Increase Your Visibility in Winter Driving
Poor visibility is often the cause of automobile accidents, especially during the winter. When roads are already slick, it’s imperative that drivers can see one another well. If you find you’re having trouble getting a clear view during the snowy season, read on to learn three tips for increasing your vehicle’s visibility in winter driving.
Clear Snow Completely
When it’s freezing cold outside, scraping your car is no fun. Still, it’s important to clear off more than just the windshield. You should be sure to brush off all of the snow from the roof of your car, as well as the hood and the headlights, to prevent snow from blowing onto either your windows or the vehicles around you.
Change Wiper Blades
Changing your wiper blades is an easy DIY task that can make a big difference in visibility. You can also swap out your normal wiper fluid for winter wiper fluid for an edge against the ice.
Check Your Headlights
You want to be sure that you clear snow and ice off of your headlights, but also make sure that your headlights are new and shining brightly. Doing so will help other drivers see your vehicle, as well as letting you see them.
