Clean off the Windshield
The most important part of your visibility is the windshield. It will need to be clean from any dirt, build up of grime, or even fingerprints. The best thing is to do is check the exterior and interior part of the windshield. If you notice a divot or crack on the windshield, it is recommended that you have it replaced as soon as you can. Any defect in the windshield can obstruct your vision. This could cover any object or animal that might be on the surface of the road when you are driving. Also make sure that the windshield wiper fluid is filled up to the correct amount and is able to wash the windshield when you travel.
Check the Lights on the Vehicle
When inspecting your vehicle, also make sure to check the headlights. This is important because the headlights will illuminated the road ahead of you. With out proper lighting, you will not be able to view the road properly and the safety of your vehicle will decrease. Check the taillights as well. Also remember to check the blinkers on the vehicle. These are important because they will alert other drivers to what direction you will be turning. Having working blinkers can prevent an accident because the chance of being rear ended will decrease. When you check the lights, also inspect them for how clean they are, as well as how they are positioned. You will want to make sure they are aimed correctly to illuminate the road ahead of you. If you are unsure about the lights on your vehicle, make sure to bring it in. We can inspect the lights for you, so the performance and effectiveness of them can be at the best.
The Heater should be Working
Along with checking the lights and windshield, also check the heating system in your vehicle. This is important because it can help defrost the window in the winter from any fog or frost. This will help improve your visibility when you drive. Make sure to check all the windows in the vehicle so you can see out of all of them properly. Besides defrost, make sure heat is coming out of the vents. This can help keep you and your passengers warm and comfortable. If there is an issue with the heating system, bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you.
