This may seem like a pretty obvious tip, but believe me it’s not as obvious as you might think after a long flight, and trying to figure out where you’re going. If you rent a car, before you leave the garage – check the wipers. Give the windshield a little spray to see if the wipers work. Just this week – and for the second time this year – I was driving my rental car when it started raining. I flip on the wipers, and they barely work. I had to put them on super fast mode just to kinda get the water off and they were annoyingly squeaking like crazy the entire time.
So don’t find out if your wipers work or not after it’s too late – check the wipers in the garage.
