The Importance of a Clean and Maintained Car

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Cruising down the street in spotless and beautiful-looking car may not only be a good way to have others notice you, but it can also help to save your life! Indeed, those with dirty cars are more-than-likely to have dirty windshields and mirrors as well, and having a dirty windshield and mirrors will mean reduced visibility on the road, which can further translate into a higher chance of not being able to react appropriately to dangerous driving situations.

In order to improve chances of staying safe on the road, it’s important to have a clean and well-maintained car. Although the dangers of driving with a dirty windshield and mirrors may not be so apparent to some, driving without a properly maintained car certainly is. Most of us are aware that it can be dangerous to drive with an automobile that has worn-down tires, lacks car fluids, or perhaps is in desperate need of an oil change. However, a lot of us fail to take the time and money out to ensure that our cars are in tip-top shape; this is definitely a shame, as it is only when our car breaks down or is involved in a near-accident or accident caused by improper car maintenance that we get the picture of just how important it is to have a clean and well-maintained car.

Don’t be like others who neglect to properly clean and maintain their cars! Ensure that you always have a clean windshield, mirrors, and that your car is properly maintained; undoubtedly, it is much better to be safe than sorry!
