Oh Say, Can You See? - Are Your Headlamps in Good Shape?

How is the visibility from the driver’s seat of your car? Say, can you see well at night because your headlights are working properly? Can you see well when it’s raining because your windshield wipers are in good condition? And oh say, can other people see your vehicle at night, too, when you activate your blinkers and press on the brake pedal?

Sorry for the play on words with our National Anthem. We can’t help it. We love our country, and to celebrate the month of July when the founding fathers of our nation started the great democratic experiment, we want to give tribute to a clear 2020 vision. (Another pun, sorry!)

All kidding aside, clear vision while you are driving is no joke. You need to see and be seen without any issues. Here are some things to consider when maintaining your vehicle’s viewpoint.

  • Are your headlights working?
  • Are your tail lights and blinkers working?
  • Are your interior lights working?
  • In what condition are your wiper blades?
  • Are your windows squeaky clean inside and out?
  • Is your defroster and climate system working properly?
  • Can your rear view and side view mirrors reduce the size of your blind spots?
  • Are your on-board sensors and cameras operating properly?
