Your Windshield Wipers Need To Be Checked Often Eight out of ten cars have unsafe windshield wipers, ac- p< tording to a recent survey by a major oil comapny. Why would such an impor- tant items as wiper blades be so neglected on such a high per- centage of cars? It's like a hole in the roof. People don't want to bother when it's rain- ing and when it stops rain- ing there's no need to worry. Wiper blades go dead in six months or less due exposure to Kim, wind and oily road film. When they go dead and start streaking the windshield, they should be replaced. Night driving is particularly dangerous when oncoming headlights are magnified in the smear caused by streaking wipers. When replacing the wiper blade, it's a good idea to have the wiper arm pressure tested. If the tension is tno weak, the arms can't do an adequate job. While you're at it, be sure you have your windshield wash- er solution checked, and re- filled if necessary. You don't want to be out of washer solu- tion just when you need it most. An untuned car is a lonely walk!

Drive ROSS Lessee Owner SERVICE Phone 327-5406 Keep Watcli On Tires In Name Of Safety Lute summer presents ei spe- cial threat for drivers that can lie more treacherous than ice. After a dry spell, a light rain or drizzle creates a thin, greasy film on smooth road surfaces. It is slick, and it is dangerous, because drivers are not con- cerned about skidding at this Lime of the year. Bald tires increase the dan- ger. More miles are driven dur- ing the summer than at any other timo of the year and with- out realizing it, tires may wear hcvond the safe point. When there is less than 2-32" of tread remaning, according to tire ex- perls, your tires are unsai'e. Under dangerous driving con- ditions, reduced speed and ex- tra caution are obvious acci- dent prevention measures. However, a double measure of safety is to keep your tires in good condition. You can subslantially in-_ crease tire life by having them' rotated about twice a year. By putting tires in different posi- tions mi tbe car (left front to left rear, left rear to right front, and so on around the cording to instructions for your make and your tires, including tbe spare, eventually will have taken their turns in all positions, thereby equaliz- ing wear. This semi-annual procedure also provides a good opportun- ity for your automotive serv- iceman to look for cuts, bruises or other damage. If Graffiti's Your Bag Rush Your One-liners In Not very often have the scrawls on wails been used in Care Council and must not be previously cop yrighted. Enter attempt to sell prod- as many as you like, but don't expect more than one certifi- cate per entrant. Paper doesn't come cheap. lids or ideas. However, grafit- li is very much a part of to- day's scene and. as such, is an important communications me- fliunl. So. with this view in mind, an ii'ternatibnal graffiti con- lesl was launched by the Car Care Council. The topic, naturally, is car care. The Council is priming the pump with lines like "A worn out muffler can give you a bad "Stamp out smut Change your Air Filter." Prizes, by some standards, may leave much to be desired. Nevertheless, they should ap- peal to graffiti fans who de- light in being recognized for their irgemiity with words. First prize (of which there will be 50) is 1) a certificate (suitable for framing) with blue ribbon and 2) the glory of having your graffiti splash- ed on bumpers, billboards and service station windows through- throughout the country. Second prize (there will be ot these) is the same as the first prize, but with a red ribbon. Honorable mentions will re- ceive the same as the first prize winrcr, except that the ribbon will be white. If graffili's your bag, rush your car one-liners to C-C-C, P.O. Box 910. Windsor, Ontario. All entries, like they say in the big time contests, become the sole property of the Car Another part of semi-annual tire care should be a check oJ wheel balance and alignment. Both have a serious hearing on tire wear and will affect your car's handling ability and driv- ing comfort. Once a month, have the air in the tires cliecked. An under- inflated tire will wear rapidly at the outer edges; ova-infla- tion causes wear at the centre. One final tire care fact espe- cially important during the summer: excessive h e a t is a tire's worst enemy. It results from a flexing of the tire body. The faster you drive, and the more load yon carry, the more your tires will flex. Tires can get sizzling hot at high speed on a summer day. When they hit 250 degrees (con- sidered their critical tempera- wear is rapid and you may he in danger of complete tire failure. Your tires are the only con- tact between you and the road. Should they fail, you are in dan- ger. Also, 'they represent a sub- stantial portion of the total value of your car. So, both in safety and in economy, proper tire care is like money in the bank.
