Top Windscreen Tips to keep you safe this Summer!

You may not know this, but the summer weather can cause problems for you and your car, your windscreens in particular. Here at Redrose, we’ve proposed a list to help motorists reduce any unnecessary repairs and fixtures this summer! This will effectively lower any maintance costs, reduce problems and increase you and your family’s safety.


  1. Make sure your wiper blades are in perfect condition to avoid any scratches to your glass as dust and dirt from summertime roadworks can cause problems.
  2. Check your oil and coolant levels to ensure your car doesn’t overheat.
  3. Regularly check for stone and chip damage which can hinder your MOT test if it is the line of sight zone.
  4. Check your tyre levels at all times and heat causes the air to expand and you want to avoid any blowouts.


  1. One of the most important rules to follow is to not drive when you’re tired, the summer months and the heat certainly make us feel drowsier, so make sure you are alert and awake before sitting behind the wheel.
  2. Make sure that you don’t leave any chips unattended as the hot weather can turn a chip into a crack due to the rise in temperature.
  3. Drive for a long period of time or start a long journey without checking basic checks first. This goes for water, especially if you’re driving during a heatwave.
  4. Rely on the air conditioning system in your car to cool it down while leaving it unattended.

It’s quick and easy to follow these handy tips to avoid any damages to your car, your safety is our guarantee and we want the best cover for your car and your family. Enjoy the summer, don’t be lazy and check your car regularly!
