Check Your Windshield Before Embarking On Holiday Travel

Though you may not realize it, the windshield of your vehicle is a crucial feature of your car. Together with other elements such as seat belts and air bags, your windshield is one of the important safety features of your car. Before embarking on holiday travels, be sure to check your windshield!

Typically, we think of the windshield as something that protects the driver and passengers from weather conditions and any debris from hitting their faces during a road trip. You may think that a small crack or chip is merely an aesthetic issue. You would be wrong. The windshield actually helps to support the structure of your vehicle, and up to 45% of roof strength is provided by your windshield.

With over 40,000 Americans killed and more than 5 million injured every year in highway crashes, we at NOVUS would like to share with you some windshield safety tips.

  • Replace your windshield wiper blades at least every 12 months. Typically, wiper blades last anywhere between 6 – 12 months, depending on the weather conditions and associated wear and tear. Worn wiper blades can cause scratches to your windshield and affect visual clarity when driving in bad weather conditions.
  • Check that you have sufficient windshield washer fluid. Your visual clarity can be impaired by a dirty windshield. One of the most important things for a driver is to see and be seen while driving.
  • If your windshield sustains any damage, however small, look over your windshield carefully and check for any cracks or chips. An undetected crack, if left unrepaired, will grow into a larger one which may make a windshield replacement necessary.
  • If your windshield is damaged in any way, get it repaired immediately! Any damage to your windshield can adversely affect the structural integrity of your car during an accident.
