Today is International !

Visibility is an important factor in driving in poor weather conditions like rain, snow and ice. Regularly examine your wipers for wear, cracks, or stiffness - signs they may struggle in harsh conditions. Run your fingers along the blades to feel for any rough spots. If they're not gliding smoothly or feel stiff and hard, it's time for a replacement. And don't forget to switch to a winter-friendly wiper fluid if you live in a colder climate. Ready your ride for the winter elements ahead!

Don't fall back on safety when Daylight Saving Time ends tonight! Here are some tips for staying safe as the time shifts:

⏰ Shorter days and waning sunlight means many motorists are commuting in different daylight conditions. Increase following distance if you are now driving into the sun in the morning or in the dark after work.

⏰ Pedestrians and cyclists are more difficult to see during this time of year, so take extra precautions to ensure visibility while walking or cycling.

⏰ As you change your clocks, change your batteries! Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to reduce the season's risk of home fires and CO poisoning.

⏰ It's also a good time to prep your car for impending winter weather and restock your cold weather vehicle emergency kit.
