Seeing is Believing When it Comes to Road Safety



It's no secret that properly functioning vehicle lights, wipers and mirrors allow for better visibility while driving, yet these items are often forgotten or ignored when performing basic auto care, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



"Making sure that you can see and be seen on the road is essential to avoiding motor vehicle accidents, yet many motorists overlook simple maintenance steps that can improve driving visibility," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "For example, community car care events held throughout the country reveal that nearly one in three vehicles inspected had insufficient wiper fluid. This simple auto care service can make a world of difference on the road."



Following a few auto care visibility tips can be illuminating, helping to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other vehicles around you.


  • Replace any exterior or interior lights that are dimming, rapidly blinking or non-functioning, and be sure headlights are correctly aimed.

  • Make sure that vehicle mirrors are clean and properly positioned.

  • Check windshield washer fluid level and when it gets low, replace it.

  • Replace wiper blades if they show cracking or if they chatter or streak when operating. Don't forget to check the rear wiper blade.

  • When in doubt, turn your lights on to help you see and help other drivers see you. Some states have laws that require headlights to be on when windshield wipers are operating.

  • Don't overdrive your headlights. Maintain a speed that will allow you to stop within the illuminated area, otherwise you create a blind crash zone in front of your vehicle.

I am so grateful to Billy and his team here. I was driving from Maine to Texas with my dog and baby when my a/c went out and they got me in right away, clearly explained and showed me exactly what was going on and gave me my options so I could make the most informed choice. I'll forever be grateful to the kindness and support Billy and everyone I met here showed us.
