Take the time to properly clear the snow off your vehicle before hitting the road

January 26, 2021 - 2 minutes read

With snow falling on a regular basis, there is a good chance your car will be covered with snow if you park outside during the day or over night. Make sure you clear off your vehicle for maximum visibility and safety for you and others on the road.

Before getting on the road, be sure to clear off the following 6 areas:

1 – Windshield – Clear the entire windshield, not just the area directly in front of you.

2 – Back window – Without a unobstructed back window you will have to rely on your side mirrors to see and that leaves a large blind spot that is easily preventable.

3 – Roof of the car – While driving down the road it’s easy for snow to slide forward or backward and obstruct your vision, so clear off any piles of snow before you drive off.

4 – Driver & passenger mirrors – Even if you car’s mirrors are heated clean them off as you clear your car to ensure immediate visibility.

5 – Head, tail & brake lights – Clearing these not only ensure you’ll be able to see, but it will help other drivers see you.

6 – License plate – While an obstructed license plate isn’t something that will get you pulled over in every state it’s better safe than sorry and clear it off.
