When you’re driving it’s important to always keep in mind how dangerous what you’re doing really is. Here you are doing nothing short of steering a metal box on wheels at speeds that we as humans never evolved to go at. This is a potentially highly destructive piece of machinery that if it were to collide with another person or object could cause serious injury and a lot of property damage.
This is why it’s so important to make sure that we maintain our vehicles at all times and keep them in good enough condition that we should ensure we stand the best chance of steering them accurately and not losing control.
One of the most important ways to accomplish this feet is to make sure that we have the optimum visibility – that we can easily see what’s ahead of us on the roads and thereby have enough time to react to any hazards or sudden changes in the driving conditions. Here are a few ways to do this…
Maintain Your Auto Glass: Your auto glass is all that’s between you and the road outside and it’s very important that this doesn’t distort your view of the road or distract you from what you need to be paying attention to. In other words then if there is a chip in the glass this can be a potentially very serious problem because it can distort what you are seeing outside and potentially distract you momentarily. Make sure then that if there are any problems with your auto glass that you get auto glass replacement or repair.
Ensure Your Windshield Wipers Are Full: Not only must you ensure that you have the best windshields, but also that your windshields are clean. This means ensuring that your windshield wiper fluid is full and that you have a good balance of soap product and water to make sure that you don’t leave sticky soap suds on the glass when you use the wipers.
Condensation: Condensation can be a problem if it is very hot or very cold because it can cloud up your screen while you’re driving. The solution is normally to turn up the heating or the air conditioning and direct it at the windshield, or to open the windows to let in more air. Just make sure that you know how to quickly deal with it if the problem should arise and that you do when it does.
