Auto glass is one of the most important aspects of your vehicle. When damaged or not working properly, your vehicle simply is not as safe as it could be. This may put you at risk for injury or even death if an impact should occur. Keeping all of your auto glass clean and free of cracks and chips will ensure that the driver has a clear, unobstructed view of his surroundings at all times. Listed below are some things drivers can do to ensure that they have a clear view of the road at all times.
Repair cracks and chips. Stones, sand particles, and road debris can hit your windshield while driving and cause small chips or dings in the glass. While these fractures may hardly be noticeable, they can spread into large cracks fairly quickly. Changes in temperature or rough driving conditions can cause a small ding to grow into a crack that can impede your vision and compromise the safety of your vehicle.
Keep it clean. Make sure all of your windows and windshield are clean. Smudges and dirt can impede your vision. No harsh cleaners are necessary when removing dirt and grime from your windshield. Use a soft cotton cloth to apply a gentle product, like vinegar or alcohol to the glass. Avoid ammonia-based products as they may damage the window tint and the fumes can be dangerous if inhaled.
Replace wipers and wiper fluid. Your vehicle’s windshield wipers are often neglected. It may not be until a downpour occurs that you realize your wipers are damaged and not working properly. Functioning wipers are necessary to clear your windshield during rain or snow so that you have a clear view of the road. Washer fluid is essential for washing away pollen, bugs, and other sticky substances from your windshield.
Following these simple steps will ensure that you will always have a clear, unobstructed view when driving. Keeping your windshield and vehicle windows in good condition is essential to your safety.
