Tips for Clearing your Car of Snow

For your safety, and for the safety of other drivers, brush snow off your car and car roof before you get on the road. This will prevent potential accidents caused by big sheets of snow flying off your car when driving. A push broom will make the job easy and allow you to sweep off the snow in just a few minutes. If your push broom has a metal bracket around the bristle head, wrap duct tape around the metal to help protect your car's paint.

To avoid damaging your wipers, fold them back from the windshield before brushing off the snow. If they are frozen to your windshield, don't pull or force them as you may damage the rubber blades, instead turn on your defroster to de-ice your windshield. To make your job easier, fold them back from the windshield before the snow falls.
