Daylight Savings ends this weekend, and you know what that means: it’s time to “fall” backward. This Sunday remember to set your clocks back one hour, and get new windshield wiper blades!
Many drivers put off changing their wiper blades, either because they don’t have time, they forget, or it just doesn’t seem like a priority. However, according the to American Optometric Association, 90% of driving decisions are made based on visibility. Keeping that information in mind, it becomes apparent that regularly changing your wiper blades is critical to driver safety.
A new set of windshield wiper blades will result in an immediate improvement of visibility and control. Wiper blades should be replaced every six months, an easy way to remember this is to change your wipers when you change your clocks at the beginning and end of daylight savings time. You should also check your wipers every few months, especially if they are regularly exposed to severe weather conditions.
Stop by AA Muffler and Brakes this weekend and buy a pair of wiper blades. It only takes a few minutes to install; you can install them yourself or one of our staff members can help you out.
