Road Safety Reminder for the Week

Windshield, Wipers, and Clean Glass Surfaces
It is important that you are able to see clearly through all windows, including the windshield, and by using mirrors. Here are some things you can do to help you.

  • Damaged glass can break more easily in a minor collision or when something hits the windshield. It can also obscure vision. Have the windshield replaced if it has been damaged.
  • Any window or windshield must be made of safety glass and permit clear vision. Windshield wipers are required for all windshields.
  • Windshield wipers keep the rain off the windshield. Make sure they are in good operating condition. If the blades have not been keeping the windows clear, replace them.
  • Keep the windshield clean. Bright sun or headlights on a dirty windshield make it hard to see. Carry liquid cleaner and a paper or cloth towel so you can clean your windshield whenever it is necessary.
  • Keep your window washer bottle full.
  • Keep the inside of your windows clean, especially if anyone has been smoking in the vehicle. Smoking causes a film to build up on the inside glass.
  • Do not hang things from your mirror while driving your vehicle or clutter up the windshield with decals. They could block your view.
  • Keep the headlights, backup, brake and taillights clean. Dirt on the lenses can cut the light’s effectiveness by 50 percent.
