Visibility is not only comfort, but also safety. Therefore it is hardly worth reminding that screen wipers, having blown and heating of glasses have to be serviceable. Throw out the brushes leaving opaque strips on glass safely. And buying new, try to choose company – Bosch, ITE, Champion... Inhabitants of northern regions can try brushes with heating which are connected to onboard network, – they were available for sale not so long ago.

One more element of active safety – side rear-view mirrors. In the winter they daily should be cleared of an ice crust or snow. At the same time their initial installation gets off that brings additional trouble. With excess $250 you can establish mirrors with electroheating and the electric drive which will make communication with the car more pleasant.

Now directly about glasses. It is better to entrust their survey to the expert, but also personal control will not prevent. Even the small chip on a windshield in the first frost after an autumn rain will turn into a full-fledged crack. The existing technologies of repair allow to eliminate similar defect without glass removal. It is simpler and cheaper, than replacement flew down – repair (removal of a crack) 10 cm long will cost $50, and new glass and its "insert" – at least $350.

One more "winter" problem – fogging of glasses. At serviceable system of ventilation arises seldom, but... Use of liquids-antizapotevateley, for example, of Anti-Fog or Never Fog which are enough to be applied on glass of times a week helps.
