Like many small things, it’s easy to forget how important windshield wipers are. They are vital – if often forgotten – parts of your car’s safety system. Wipers keep rain water, dirt, and debris from obscuring your vision while driving, which would otherwise impair your ability to safely drive your car. If your windshield wipers fail to function while you are driving during adverse conditions, your safety and the safety of any other occupants in or near the car is seriously jeopardized.

The Importance of Wipers
Windshield wipers are vitally important to keeping your car drivable. Many people neglect them because they aren’t as obviously important as the engine, battery, or tires. However, without them, you would be unable to clear obstructions from your field of vision. It’s important for your safety that you:
- Replace the wiper blades when they get old. Wiper blades are the rubber covers attached to the metal arms, the parts that do the actual wiping. Wiper blades need to be replaced when they wear out. As soon as they start leaving streaks on your windshield, you should replace them. Wiper blades can be purchased at most general stores and auto part retailers.
- Replace the fluid in your wiper reservoir frequently. Check the level frequently. You can use either wiper fluid or distilled water. If you choose to use water, make sure that it is distilled; tap water can have impurities which can clog the nozzles on the sprayers.
