Appropriate Wiper Blade Usage Can Save the Day

At Mathews Acura, we like to help our customers and others out by pointing out little-known but critical safety issues. One such issue that affects drivers in colder climates is poor visibility. While poor visibility can be an issue, individuals who make use of proper wiper and blade technology can greatly mitigate this potential risk.

Most wiper blades come in a few basic varieties, and these include winter and summer wiper blades. Summer wiper blades are light in construction and contain many exposed moving parts. In addition, they contain natural rubbers that work well during hotter summer months.

In contrast, winter wiper blades are enclosed structures that feature very few moving parts. In addition, winter blades are made of special synthetic rubbers that are able to maintain their softness even during cold conditions. This flexibility allows the blade to thoroughly clear away snow, ice, and sleet that would normally obscure vision.
