WIPERS, LIGHTS AND ACCESSORIES
Your ability to see the road ahead of you is directly related to both how clear your windshield is and how bright your lights are. Hot and Cold weather, dusty or salty environments and so much more can affect the way that you can see. Over time your wiper blades and light bulbs just wear out. Seeing what lies in front of you is after all the goal of any good road trip!

WIPER BLADES REPLACEMENT
Wiper blades are responsible for helping drivers travel safely in inclement weather. In bad weather conditions like downpours, wiper blades can be activated to help keep a driver’s field of vision clear. Many vehicles have a single pair of wiper blades located on the front windshield, but some vehicles also contain a wiper blade on the rear windshield. Because they are located on the outside of your vehicle, wiper blades are prone to wear and will require replacements in time. Even if they are not heavily used, the blades should be replaced regularly because the material they are made of has its own lifespan. Generally, it is recommended that wiper blades be replaced every 6,000 miles or every six months. However, it is worth noting that surrounding weather conditions may alter the lifespan of the blades, so it is recommended that all drivers inquire about the best time to replace their specific wiper blades.
HEADLIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
Headlight bulbs provide visibility for drivers and alert both pedestrians and other motorists to a vehicle’s presence. Bulbs are primarily composed of glass, a low pressure inert gas, a filament, and wires. Using the electricity provided by a vehicle’s charging system, bulbs produce a strong, steady light. A motorist can alter the bulb’s level of brightness to a low or high beam setting. Motorists tend to use low beams at night or during periods of inclement weather. In contrast, drivers generally use high beams at night when it is especially dark and other sources of lights are unavailable. When bulbs produce light at the high beam setting they can also cause glare, so drivers should be careful when using high beams around others. Some higher quality bulbs will function at optimal levels for several years. All headlight bulbs will eventually require replacement as their filaments fail from use over time.
INTERIOR & EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Many modern vehicles are equipped with a wide selection of interior and exterior lights for the convenience and safety of occupants. Glove box, rear view mirror, gauge panel, and overhead console lights are usually present in a vehicle’s cabin. On the outside of vehicles are headlights, license plate lights, and turning signal or “blinker” lights. During nighttime operation, interior and exterior lights are especially important. Headlights and cabin lights can illuminate the surrounding area, reducing risk of injury from tripping or stumbling. In addition, a vehicle’s lights can alert other motorists to the vehicle’s presence. This is important during emergencies when a vehicle may be parked off the roadside. In addition to their safety functions, lights are convenient.
