Road Trip! Summer road trips are a cherished tradition for many families. Create wonderful memories, explore new places, and even save some money along the way by traveling together by car. Of course, safety should be one primary concern on a long road trip. There’s a valid reason for this; U.S. Department of Transportation surveys show that more deaths occur on roadways from June to August than any other time of year. To create pleasant memories for all, take some time to plan your trip. Our summer road trip checklist is the perfect resource for making sure that your family outing will be remembered for years to come.
Everyone knows that having a clear view out of the windshield is vital. However, if several weeks’ worth of bug splats, dried raindrop marks, pollen, or general dirt accumulate on the windshield, that clear view can be a thing of the past.

If your windshield wipers seem to chatter more than a toddler as they swish back and forth over your windshield, or they leave more dirt and streaks than they remove, it may be time to replace them. However, first take a few minutes to clean the blades and see if that resolves the problem. If not, it is definitely time to invest in new blades.
