We at AA Muffler and Brakes haven't forgotten about the incredibly innovative Mary Anderson! In 1903, she patented a "window cleaning device for electric cars and other vehicles to remove snow, ice or sleet from the window." Does that sound familiar?
Happy October everyone. At AA Muffler and Brakes, our favorite part about this time of year is the quiet calm of an autumn drive. But without an exhaust muffler, those peaceful drives would be much louder (and much less enjoyable in our opinion). Thankfully, back in 1897, Milton O. and Marshall T. Reeves patented their “exhaust muffler for engines.”
July is UV Safety Month! Car safety extends beyond seat belts, airbags, and regular maintenance, to your skin. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which reaches us in the form of UVB and UVA rays, is associated with most skin cancer cases. Glass can only effectively block UVB rays, leaving us exposed to UVA even inside a car. To help prevent some of this exposure to UVA, car windshields have been partially treated to help filter out some of that UVA radiation.
