We’ve all experienced days when the rain is coming down hard, your wiper blades are going at double speed and your face is squished up against the window in the hope of seeing a bit more of the road. Poor visibility has been linked to a significant number of car accidents which is why good wiper blades are vital when you are driving, particularly in colder seasons when our changeable British weather is more adverse.
Maintain good visibility
You should check your wipers every 6 months for these common problems:
- Streaky residue being left in a typical arch shape – could be caused by a dry wiper blade, old pollen, or left over tree sap that has collected from previous months. Using a proper screenwash rather than relying on plain water may also help
- Cracks and splits caused by the sun’s rays is a common giveaway of needing a replacement wiper blade
- Heavily-worn rubber edges that have lost their shape after extensive use will not be as effective at wiping water away from the glass
- Jumping blades leaving vertical lines on your windshield after use and impairing your vision
- Buckled wiper blades from knocks and other forms of damage, resulting in poor contact with the glass and the possibility of windscreen marks
If you have one or more of those symptoms it may be time to consider replacing the wiper blade.
