TRICO Reminds Drivers To ‘Change Your Clocks, Change Your Blades’

As the season of harsh winter weather comes to a close, Trico Products reminds drivers to "Change Your Clocks, Change Your Blades" as Daylight Savings Time approaches on March 10. This time of year serves as a helpful reminder to take control of driving safety as other routine maintenance concerns are top of mind.

As the season of harsh winter weather comes to a close, Trico Products reminds drivers to “Change Your Clocks, Change Your Blades” as Daylight Savings Time approaches on March 10. This time of year serves as a helpful reminder to take control of driving safety as other routine maintenance concerns are top of mind.

“A long winter with destructive ice and snow can severely damage treated rubber elements and critical wiper superstructures causing poor visibility in unsafe driving conditions,” said Kevin O’Dowd, global director of marketing, corporate branding and strategy for Trico Products. “That’s why we strongly encourage consumers to change their wipers at this time of year in preparation of the new spring season and the heavy rains that itoften brings.”

Drivers tend to forget about replacing windshield wiper blades until the moment of truth, as a storm approaches or heavy snows cover their cars. Ideally, blades should be replaced every six months, and Daylight Savings Time affords the perfect opportunity to remind drivers to purchase the right pair of replacement wipers, Trico says.
