Have you thought about changing your wiper blades?
December 05 2015, Marie-Andrée Boisvert
With the holidays coming up, most of us hit the road to visit family or venture to ski hills to finally start practicing winter sports such as skiing, snowshoeing, etc. In short, at one time or another, we’ll eventually have our first heavy snow storm. One of the most overlooked aspects of the cold season is changing wiper blades which are absolutely necessary for winter visibility.
As of December 15, as required by law in Quebec, all vehicles must be equipped with winter tires. Almost all of us follow the law as the fines are quite high, and tthe government has undertaken a lot of public education with particulary shocking advertisements about the dangers of using all-season tires. However, it’s also clear that winter wiper blades should fall within the same safety category.
Designed to defend against elements such as snow, ice, sleet and slush, winter wipers are much more flexible and do not freeze. Also, when you opt for winter wipers, the pressure on the windshield will be optimal. With no traces of snow and ice, you’ll be able to drive safely.
Although there are many types of winter blades on the market, it’s important to note that genuine Toyota blades are designed to ensure your safety, even in the worst winter conditions. They are specially made to clear snow, ice and slush from the windshield, and feature a wedge-shaped deflector which helps remove snow and accumulated ice.
Be ready to hit the roads this winter by choosing your best ally for visibility: the winter windshield wiper!
