As with any element on a car, windshield wipers require maintenance and especially to be changed as soon as they show signs of weakness.
Indeed, delaying replacing wiper blades can lead to bigger problems. And that’s what we’re going to list today.
The first thing to think about is visibility. Yes, it seems stupid but with damaged brushes, dirt on the windshield is not properly cleaned and the latter can then accumulate the imperfections until the driver is hampered for driving.
But beyond the dirt, damaged wiper blades can also damage the windscreen itself. Yes, if the brushes are too worn, they can easily scratch the glass and thus push you to have to change everything!
An unnecessary expense that can be avoided very simply.
Beware of penalties
Finally, like tires or turn signals, faulty wipers can be sanctioned by law enforcement. In the event of a police check, a damaged or broken down broom can lead to a fine of €68.
So, it is better to think about checking your windshield wipers before encountering all these problems, right?
