Why are windscreen wipers important?
It is important that your windscreen wipers are kept in good condition to primarily keep you safe while driving, but to also avoid unnecessary windscreen scratches.
Although the average effective lifespan of a wiper is around six months, most motorists only replace them every two years - that's eighteen months of steadily decreasing effectiveness.
How should I care for my windscreen wipers?
To preserve your windscreens, set aside time to clean them and, particularly on long journeys, ensure you have enough windscreen wash available to clear the windscreen during wintery conditions.
