Now Is A Bad Time To Notice Faulty Wiper Blades

Posted on January 6, 2016

With the effects of El Nino already being felt in this winter out West, it is vital to make sure your fleet vehicles have working windshield wipers, good tires and working lights.

These are all routine things that we should be checking during a pre-inspection. However, on a bright sunny day we don't usually don’t think about our windshield wiper blades. That is, until you are 100 miles away from home and staring at a big black cloud in your path. That is not a good time to find out you need new blades. It would be even worse to find your wipers don't work at all.

Remember to turn your headlights on in a storm to make sure you are easily seen by motorists around you in a driving rain or fog.
