INTERNATIONAL CHECK YOUR WIPERS DAY

INTERNATIONAL CHECK YOUR WIPERS DAY

International Check Your Wipers Day, on November 16, reminds drivers to regularly check their windshield wipers to ensure optimum visibility in the event of inclement weather on the road.

#CheckYourWipersDay 

According to the FHWA, about 21% of all accidents in the United States are weather-related. As travelers plan for road trips, it’s important to remind them to proactively check their wipers. Visibility is an important factor in driving in poor weather conditions like rain, snow and ice. A survey by MICHELIN® Wiper Blades found that 92% of drivers agree that poor wiper blades can affect their driving ability. However, 90% of drivers do not plan the time to check their wipers properly and 55%+ don’t know how to check their wiper blades properly. 

OBSERVING CHECK YOUR WIPERS DAY

On International Check Your Wipers Day, ensure your family’s driving ability and safety by checking the windshield wipers on all your cars.

Standard recommendations suggest we change our wiper blades every 6 to 12 months. However, the frequency varies depending on the location of residence and how often the vehicle is driven. This requires people to regularly inspect their wipers to ensure that they are not past the lifespan, which leads to compromised visibility.
