With the days getting shorter, comes cooler weather and a good idea to start preparing your vehicle for winter driving. Both fall and winter place the driver in seasonal situations where driving with limited daylight are less then ideal for optimal driving conditions.
The first place to look at is visibility - the image below is testament to this logic. There are remnants of used windshield fluid from the wiper-blades and suggests that the rubber portion of the blades are no longer making proper contact with the windshield.
Purchasing a new set of wiper-blades is as easy as going to your local big box automotive store (e.g. Canadian Tire, Walmart), or if your unsure how to change them, think about an express lube or your mechanic shop.
Taking preventative measures for safer winter driving in the early part of fall will save you much hassle once weather inhibits driving conditions.
