Useful winter accessories that we tend to forget about
Winter is fast approaching and with it will come snowy and icy roads, storms, intense cold and all the other inconveniences that may accompany it. Even before the arrival of winter, we must take the time to make sure that our vehicle is in good mechanical condition - especially the battery - and that our winter tires are also able to offer good performance.
This is the base, but it is also possible to purchase various accessories that can facilitate even more your life in winter. Here are a few examples.
Visibility is always a little precarious in winter. Either the ice has accumulated on our windshield, or we are driving in a storm and the snow is accumulating too quickly for our windshield wipers to keep up. Oh, and there is also the ridiculous amount of sand that is put on our roads and that can quickly cause our visibility to go downhill in a hurry.
In short, there are several reasons to opt for wipers that are specially adapted to winter. These will be stronger and more resistance while having better grip on the glass surface. The driver can then enjoy much improved visibility.
We should always have salt and a shovel in our vehicle in winter in case we get caught in a snowbank. That said, traction aids can be even more effective in getting our vehicle out of a tough situation. They are not very expensive, and they will allow us to get our vehicle unstuck even if we are alone.
Winter carpets protect our cabin from all the dirt that can infiltrate in winter. Like traction aids, they are inexpensive while improving the resale value of our vehicle by preventing the formation of calcium stains.
