Clear vision is essential to safe driving, especially in the wintertime. Neglect your wiper blades, and you may find yourself in hazardous weather situations with limited vision. If you change your blades regularly, you can avoid these problems and keep your eyes clearly on the road.



- Knowing when to change your blades. When should you change your wiper blades? When a blade is past its physical prime, it will show wear signs like cracking or discoloration. Another indicator that it's time for new wiper blades is by the quality of the wipe - streaking or unwiped areas are a dead giveaway.



- How often should you replace your blades? If your blades don't have a special indicator, the National Highway Transportation Board recommends that drivers change their wiper blades, at minimum, every year. However, the average vehicle owner replaces his/her wiper blades only once every 2.5 years.
