When she bought a car, she thought life with a car was easy, but she was shocked to know that a car required attention like anything else.

Six months down the road, Agnes Mutibwa had to have certain things on her car replaced. One of these was the windshield wipers that had worn out and required to be changed.

Mutibwa, wanted to ignore them and drive her car the way it was but her mechanic advised her to have the wiper blades changed or else she risked damaging her windshield. She accepted and fixed them.

 Windshield wiper Blades need to be changed every after 7 months.

Experts warn that ignoring car wipers is common among motorists but this is something that should be given attention.

Moses Kayiira the mechanic at Bakayiira Diesel Garage notes that wipers are usually used for cleaning the car windshield to ensure clear visibility as one drives.

He says windshield wipers are very important to a driver that whether it’s shinning or raining, a driver needs them but motorists barely pay attention to them and only remember to use them when it’s raining. It’s sad that some find them damaged and their visibility is interfered with.

He notes that some actually use damaged wipers with damaged blades but these do not function well. “Once the wiper blades are damaged and a motorist uses them to clean the windshield of his car, they will scratch the windshield,”Kayiira advises.

He says it’s important that motorists develop a habit of checking and changing windshield wiper blades before the rubber completely peels away.
